 In 1973 the Powell firm built only 193 flutes, all of them of professional quality:  some with extruded tone-holes, some of the traditional French design, with soldered tone-holes and extended key-arms over the pad-cups.

 Highly recommended vintage Powell that's quite different from the Powell flutes  of today.
