Here we have a Powell Sonaré 705 model Flute. Serial number 43595, the flute you see pictured is the exact one you will receive if you should choose to purchase.

Verne Q. Powell Flutes have a long and storied history of handcrafting fine flutes in America.  Originally working in Boston, Verne Q. Powell helped pioneer the American silver flute before creating his own namesake company in 1926.  Now located in Maynard, a small town outside of Boston, the Verne Q. Powell Flute Company continued the long tradition of excellence in fine handmade flutes.

The Sonaré 705 model from Powell is a sterling silver flute that bridges the gap between intermediate flutes and handmade sterling silver models. It features a Signature II hand cut headjoint in 9K Aurmuite, a tube made of sterling silver fused with 9K gold. Each Signature II head joint is assembled and hand cut in the Maynard factory by an accomplished flutists to the highest performance standards.  The Signature II design affords each Powell Signature flute with a open sound with excellent intonation and projection. This Powell Sonaré is crafted with a sterling silver tube body with a 0.016” wall, and tone holes drawn by Powell’s patented Zinki technology.

Every Sonaré Flute body is handmade in the Maynard, Boston workshop.  The body tube is sent overseas where the silver plated nickel-silver mechanism is soldered to the body, and is sent back to the Maynard workshop for final adjustment and assembly. Like all Powell flutes, this Sonaré Series utilizes the famous Powell scale and this particular model is pitched to A=442, the favored pitch for American flutists. It features a B footjoint with gizmo, offset G key, split E mechanism, C# Trill key, French (open) keys and pointed arms.  The Sonaré is outfitted with an elegant leather bound wooden case and nylon case cover.
