Steven Wasser, owner of Powell, said of Di Zhao - “Zhao has outstanding skills as a flute and headjoint maker” … Posted: February, 2007, Entrepreneur Media, Inc.  Each instrument is completely handmade in the Boston tradition in that each key is individually hand fitted for a precise fit without the side to side play found in machine made flute mechanisms. All pads are partially shimmed. Every flute is made to achieve smooth key action, fast response, and excellent resonance.  All flutes are tuned to pitch 442.


 "Zhao has reinvented the quality and beauty of vintage Powell flutes, but at a considerably lower price-point. It is my hope that the price stays well below that of the other Boston flutemakers", said one customer.
