Verne Q. Powell Flutes was founded in 1927 by Verne Powell to provide professional Flutists with custom-made, precious metal instruments. Powell offers an extensive choice of Flute headjoints made in their Boston factory, including the sterling silver, Aurumite 14k and gold in four headjoint styles.
LUMINA is a fusion of the deep, rich tone of the Philharmonic cut, and the versitility of the Venti cut. It is colorful and produces a crisp, clear articulation.
PHILHARMONIC The Philharmonic has a relatively broad, flat lip plate. This headjoint produces crisp and clean articulation along with a deep, rich tone with a broad dynamic range.
SOLOIST The strength and flexibility of this headjoint allows the player to fill a hall or perform the quietest passages easily, with complete command. The slightly curved lip plate offers quick articulation and a full range of colors.
VENTI The Venti style cut was developed by Mr. Paul Edmund-Davies to mirror his experience of singing in a cathedral choir. This headjoint has a taller riser which creates an excellent depth of sound through all three octaves.
