|Powell Signature Flute and Signature Piccolo
Thinking about purchasing a Powell piccolo? Wondering what models are available? Powell currently offers two models, the Signature and the Handmade Custom. We thought we would take a look at the two to find out more about their features and options...

At first glance, it may be difficult to distinguish the two models -- especially if you are looking at the Signature and the grenadilla Handmade Custom with silver mechanism. However, as you look closer, you'll notice that there are two slight differences on the outside: the rings, and the text under the logo. Both the Signature and Handmade Custom piccolos have rings on the bottom of the body, bottom of the headjoint, and top of the headjoint (below the crown). However, the styles of these rings differ. The Signature rings have a flat style with a slightly elevated edge. On the Handmade Custom, the ring at the bottom of the body is curved, and the rings on the headjoint are flat (but without an edge like the Signature's headjoint rings). Also, looking at the logo at the top of the body, you'll notice that both have the words, "Verne Q. Powell Flutes" and "Boston," but the Signature model has "Signature" added directly under "Verne Q. Powell Flutes."
