Powell Conservatory Series
Aurumite 9K Handmade Flute
Mr. Powell made his first conservatory flute in 1928, called the Commercial model. Today’s Conservatory models combine the aesthetics of the traditional Handmade Custom model and are offered with a hand cut Custom Powell headjoint.
Aurumite® flutes are created using a patented process that fuses two tubes of gold and silver. The Aurumite body is .016" thick with an exterior layer of 9k rose gold and an inner layer of sterling silver. This unique material combines the projection of silver with the warmth of gold.
