Powell Flutes currently offers four different headjoint styles: The "Philharmonic Cut," the "Soloist Cut," the "Venti Cut," and the "Signature Cut." 

The Philharmonic Cut has a relatively broad, flat lip plate. Articulation is crisp and clean, and the style produces a deep, rich tone with a broad dynamic range. 

The strength and flexibility of the Soloist Cut headjoint allows the player to fill a hall or perform the quietest passages easily, with complete command. The slightly curved lip plate offers quick articulation and a full range of colors. 

The Venti Cut, developed by Mr. Paul Edmund-Davies to mirror his experience of singing in a cathedral choir, has excellent depth of sound through all three octaves, and a very resonant and free third octave.
