我们的故事

我们公司的历史与我们的公司名称Verne Q. Powell有着密切的关联。鲍威尔作为一名珠宝匠,在1910年为自己制作了一根长笛,采用的材料是他随手可得的各种银制品,包括银币、表壳和调羹。这种无与伦比的金属加工手艺使其成功获得波士顿一家长笛公司的工作。他在那里一直工作到1926年,之后他离开这家公司开创了自己的企业。他的目标是制作出全世界最精密美妙的法式长笛。有了自己的公司后,他可以自由探索,投身到长笛的细节技艺和艺术天地中。

他的长笛很快就名声大噪,被大家视为笛手可吹奏的最佳长笛,受到全世界笛手们的青睐和认可。1928年,他制作完成了他的首款纯14K黄金长笛;接下来又制作了这种款式的短笛和中音长笛。1930年前,该品牌已覆盖了波士顿、底特律、费城、克利夫兰、巴尔的摩和纽约的交响乐团。其中一些长笛声名鹊起:#365—— the “World’s Fair” William Kincai白金长笛,# 900——唯一一款全身均用14K白金打造的长笛;#1142——“Signature”长笛。

在过去的几十年里,创新已成为鲍威尔公司的标志。鲍威尔公司是首家制作出售铜制长笛的公司,首家结合使用金银打造出Aurumite长笛的公司,首家制作19.5K玫瑰金长笛的公司。

2100和3100系列长笛是在90年代早期开发的,最终促成了今日Conservatory长笛的问世。首款Conservatory长笛于2002年发布,籍以庆祝公司成立75周年,同时发布的还有另一款新的乐器——鲍威尔Sonaré长笛。一年之后,公司推出Signature长笛。2005年和2006年,公司发布了全新的笛头款:Soloist和Venti。2007年,鲍威尔对其新音孔挤制技艺申请了专利,这一技艺一直沿用至今。2011年,NASA宇航员Cady Coleman将其购置的鲍威尔长笛带上了国际空间站,这成为首支在太空中吹奏的手工长笛。

2016年,Verne Q. Powell Flutes, Inc.被比费·库姆布恩公司收购,加入其他九个管乐器品牌的阵营,构成了全球最大的管乐器制造公司集团。

2017年是美国这家典型的长笛制作公司的成立90周年。这家由Verne Q. Powell自身创立的企业在过去的90年间,致力于创新和现代化,在艺术之旅上做出卓越贡献。
