Since 1927 Powell headjoints have reflected the changing demands of flutists while remaining true to the "Powell Sound", which is valued for its quality and flexibility of character.

Each headjoint is handmade at their Maynard, Massachusetts workshop by professionally trained flutists. Every one is held to an exacting tolerance and high musical standard.

The name "Venti" encapsulates the concept of a headjoint that allows air to pass freely through the instrument and beyond, giving the performer variations of flexibility, dynamics, power and sound. Powell has worked with international flautist, Paul Edmund-Davies to develop this headjoint style. Mr. Edmund-Davies became interested in the development of this style due to the prospect of playing on a headjoint that mirrored his experiences of singing in a cathedral choir. Paul's concept of a natural approach to the instrument incorporates an open and unrestricted style, with reference in particular to a more resonant and free 3rd octave. The result is a headjoint that allows for depth of sound through all three octaves, even pitch and dynamic range, as well as a sound that is powerful without being wild or breaking up.
