Full Description

The true mark of a masterpiece is always the artist's signature at the bottom of the canvas. The origin of the Signature flute is no different. Made as a special gift for a Boston doctor who saved Mr. Powell's eyesight, the original "Signature Flute" was a Sterling Silver flute made in 1952, #1142. This gift was the doctor's first opportunity to play a handmade Powell flute. Today, the signature model is also the first opportunity for many to own a handmade Powell flute.

The Signature Flute is the most affordable Powell handmade flute that we offer, this flute has a Sterling Silver headjoint, body and mechanism. Signature Flutes have a traditional pinned mechanism, resulting in a lighter weight. The tone holes are drawn using Powell's patented method of extrusion and each flute bears the signature of Verne Q. Powell. The final mark of quality on this instrument is the handcut Signature II style headjoint, made and tested by the same headjoint makers who make Powell's Custom headjoints.

We offer the option to sell this flute with other Powell Headjoint options to suit your playing needs, and can adjust the price accordingly.
