About Powell Flutes

Since their founding in 1927, Powell Flutes has been a leader among makers of professional flutes and piccolos. Verne Powell opened his first shop at 295 Huntington Ave in Boston Massachusetts, just down the street from the famous Boston Symphony Hall. The first ten flutes made by Mr Powell were owned by some of the most famous American flautists of the time, including William Kincaid, Arthur Lora, and John Wummer. By 1930 Powell flutes were part of major orchestras in Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, New York, and Philadelphia.

Today the workshop is in Maynard, a small town just outside Boston. The shop occupies one floor of a building that was originally a woollen mill. Much like the workers who originally occupied the building, the flute makers continue the New England tradition of craftsmanship and a devotion to making the highest quality instruments. Every day they employ a strategic combination of handcrafting, technology, and a little bit of magic that enables you to explore your musicality.
