This Powell Signature Model piccolo # 0282 is about 15 years old. It is made of aged Grenadilla wood with sterling silver. 925 key mechanism and Gold Springs. It has a Split E mechanism and the headjoint is their Classic Cut model. This is an excellent example of a high-end handmade professional piccolo. It is in superb condition and has had limited use. There are no cracks, dings or checks to be found anywhere in the wood and the silver mechanism is free moving and blemish free. The instrument has a warm sound and facile response. Top octave is stable and dependable. Pitch is consistent throughout all 3 octaves at forte and pianissimo. It has the modern Powell scale at A=442 and is easily tunable within a range both slightly below and above that pitch. The piccolo was professionally serviced at the Powell workshop in Maynard, Massachusetts about 6 weeks ago in preparation for sale. At that time, 8 pads were replaced, along with various body and headjoint corks. It was cleaned, oiled, polished and adjusted to factory specifications. The Powell maintenance report will be sent along with the piccolo. Not only does the piccolo look like it just came from the factory (which it actually did), but the original Powell wooden case and case cover are in excellent shape. It may also benefit from an adjustment in 6 months or so after the new pads, corks and wood react to general humidity and climate in their new home locale.
