The solid silver tube measures .016 inches (body and foot), .014 inches (head) .
The flute was constructed with inline G, and soldered tone-holes.

The Powell workshop did build a few “Cooper Scale” instruments in the years just before Albert Cooper made an exclusive arrangement with the Brannen brothers.
This is another flute that’s been played only a few times since new, acquired by us from a large Mid-West USA shop that sells guitars, entry-level winds and (so it seems) very few pro-model wind instruments.
No scratches or dings, a very “comfortable” instrument that’s suitable for use with any ensemble.
