The perfect marriage of old world tradition and new world design, the Powell Wooden Flute has the ability to transport your sound to a completely different spectrum of color.

Enjoy this instrument’s warm sound and unique response with a Sterling Silver or 14K Rose Gold pinless mechanism. This instrument features our Modern Powell Scale and a metal headjoint tenon. Metal headjoints and wooden headjoints can be interchanged on this or any other of our instruments.

Grenadilla is a member of the rosewood family (Dalbergia Melanoxylon) and has been used for instrument making for centuries. Also known as African Blackwood, Grenadilla is a tremendously strong wood, making it very durable and less susceptible to cracks. We age our Grenadilla stock between 5-7 years before turning it into a flute body or headjoint. Like a fine wine or champagne, the aging process gives our instruments a fuller body with more levels of sophistication to experience. These instruments have an organic sound which continues to unfold as the instrument is played over time.
