Re: Powell flute

The Powell flute i repadded was built in 1977 ....it was built with traditional felt pads.
I brought it back to traditional...and for some reason i can not explain...it seems to play 'bigger"
i noticed it..and when the owner started playing it, that was her remark as well...kinda spooky!
