Mr. Powell made his first conservatory flute in 1928, called the Commercial model. Todays Conservatory models combine the aesthetics of the traditional Handmade Custom model and the flexibility of the Powell sound.

Powell created one of the first pinless left hand mechanisms over 2 decades ago and in 2007 added a pinless right hand to the Custom flutes to create a completely pinless mechanism. In 2009, the Conservatory flutes were re-designed and now feature this completely pinless mechanism. All Conservatory flutes are offered with a hand-cut, Custom Powell headjoint.

Materials: Conservatory flutes are offered in sterling silver or Aurumite 9k gold with sterling silver keys and come standard with leather cases and case covers.
Each sterling silver Conservatory flute possesses the special sonority, scale, and color for which Powell instruments are known
The new pinless mechanism allows for smooth, positive mechanical action accompanied by the traditional, elegant Powell aesthetics.
Powells patented Aurumite Conservatory model combines 9k rose gold and sterling silver which produce a warm, dark quality, while retaining the resonance and projection of silver.
Mechanical Options: All Conservatory flutes have extruded (drawn) tone holes and Powells pinless mechanism. The most popular options are available with Conservatory flutes.
