Over the centuries, royalty wore rubies to amplify their voices.
The newest member of the Powell Family of Flutes, the Ruby Aurumite Handmade Custom Flute, is now available. Ruby Aurumite has been designed to provide the wide palette of tone colors, projection, and flexibility which are characteristic of the Powell Sound.
The body of the flute is comprised of 14k rose gold on the outside and sterling silver inside to provide the resonance of sterling silver and the warmth of gold. Ruby Aurumite is created using Powell's patented Aurumite technology, which has been part of the Powell family since 1986. The tone holes are silver brazed using Powell’s proprietary technology, and the 14k rose gold lip plate and wall add strength and color.
