Handmade Conservatory

Our Handmade Conservatory flute traces its ancestry to Mr. Powell’s first Commercial flute, made in 1928. Today’s Conservatory model stands up to the flutist’s technical requirement s as well as acoustical demands. These flutes, played by professionals around the world, are valued for their colorful tone and dynamic range. The pinless mechanism offers smooth action, allowing technical passages to be played with precision.

The Conservatory flute features French (open) cups, pointed arms, drawn tone holes (made with our patented Zinki technology – U.S. patent #7,420,109), the Modern Powell Scale, A-442 or 444 pitch, a fully pinless mechanism with traditional adjustments, a hand-cut Custom headjoint, pointed arms, leather case and case cover.

Conservatory flutes are offered in .016" and .018" sterling silver or Aurumite® 9k bodies with sterling silver keys.  Click here to learn more about our new Heavy Wall Handmade Conservatory flute!
