Did you see last week’s big news about the new piccolo that will be in the shop soon? Some of you may have been scratching your heads and thinking “Hmm…I didn’t know she was a Powell dealer?” Well, great news: now I am!

Powell flutes has joined the lineup of intermediate and professional level flutes here at the shop, representing yet another wonderful Boston-area tradition of fine instruments. Every Powell Sonaré flute features a hand-cut headjoint and body made at their Boston area shop. Powell Sonaré models are available in a range of levels, all of which allow the player to perform with the renowned, professional Powell Sound virtuosity at a step-up flute price. The IFS is currently carrying two models: the 55-BEF, which features a sterling silver headjoint, offset G, split E mechanism, and B foot; and the 75-BEF, which adds on a sterling silver body and foot. These models are available on Paige’s fully comprehensive rent-to-own plan.

More great news: Powell Signature flutes are now available as well–the only shop in Indiana where you can find these exquisite instruments! The Handmade Signature flute is one of the most economically priced handmade solid sterling silver flute available and is completely made at their workshop in Maynard, Massachusetts. The pinned mechanism is built completely by hand, providing the “Powell Sound” with a quiet and reliable mechanism. The Signature style headjoint was specifically designed to accompany the Signature flute and is hand cut by the same headjoint makers who make the Custom headjoints. It is an instrument that will easily provide the aspiring flutist with many years of room to grow.

Come try out these fantastic instruments here at the shop!
