Powell Sonare 501 Series Flute
New Signature II Professional Headjoint Design!
Verne Q. Powell flutes have long be known for professional flutes. In 2002, they created a flute revolution by introducing the Sonare brand; combining a professional Powell Solid Silver headjoint with a good intermediate body. Today, the new Powell Sonare flutes have gone even further! Now, not only the headjoint but also the body tubes are made by Powell in the USA. The keywork is made in Asia and the final assembly is performed in the USA. Featuring the new 2nd Generation Signature Series Headjoint, the Powell Sonare 501 Series flutes will impress the most discerning flautists and help provide younger players with true professional performance at an intermediate price!
2nd Generation Headjoint
The Powell Sonare 501 Series flutes feature the new 2nd Generation Solid Silver “Signature Series” headjoint. This new model incorporates the lip plate from the Powell Philharmonic headjoint with the Signature cut. The end result is more power, projection and response.
Powell Sonare 501
The Powell Sonare 501 series is the most affordable in the Sonare lineup. The Sonare 501 features the sterling headjoint and is combined with a nickel-silver body tube (made by Powell in the USA) that is silver plated. The keywork utilizes standard “Y-Arm” construction (though it is available with pointed arms as the model 505) and open holes.
The Powell Sonare 501 is one of the most remarkable combinations of quality, craftsmanship, performance and value on the flute market today!
Every Powell Sonare 501 Series Flute that we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on your flute is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, an instrument (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours!
This is why we perform our setup in our ProShop (Straubinger Certified) on your new Powell Sonare 501 Series Flute before delivering it to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your new flute setup flawlessly!
Powell Sonare 501 Series Flute Options
The Sonare 501 can be configured with the following options:
- Low B foot or Low C foot
- Off-Set or In-Line G
- Split E (Off-Set G only)
- 9k Aurumite Lip Plate
By default, Kessler & Sons Music only stocks models with a Low B foot but we can special order with a Low C foot if a customer prefers. In-Line G models are also available on order.
9K Aurumite Lip
Powell’s Aurumite is a process of fusing layers of gold to silver. This is thicker and more drastic than just “plating”, but rather helps to give the finished product more mass like solid gold would but without the drastic cost of solid gold. The Powell Sonare 501 Series Flute is available with a 9k Aurumite Lip Plate.
