Powell Custom Headjoint in Platinum (New)
Verne Q. Powell Platinum Handcut Headjoint - Platinum tube, 10K gold lip plate, riser, and crown. .010" tubing. Handmade in USA.
Powell Flutes currently offers four different headjoint styles: The "Philharmonic Cut," the "Soloist Cut," the "Venti Cut," and the "Lumina Cut."
The Philharmonic Cut has a relatively broad, flat lip plate. Articulation is crisp and clean, and the style produces a deep, rich tone with a broad dynamic range.
The strength and flexibility of the Soloist Cut headjoint allows the player to fill a hall or perform the quietest passages easily, with complete command. The slightly curved lip plate offers quick articulation and a full range of colors.
The Venti Cut, developed by Mr. Paul Edmund-Davies to mirror his experience of singing in a cathedral choir, has excellent depth of sound through all three octaves, and a very resonant and free third octave.
The Lumina Cut is described as acrobatic in nature, freeing the player to move smoothly between octaves and over large intervals. This cut offers flexibility while producing a solid, centered, sophisticated core.
