Powell Signature

Post by Ryo »

Hello. I have a question about the pads of Powell Signature. The spec says Pisoni S2 Standard pads are installed in it. Seeing Pisoni's catalog, I found two types of S2 pads, hi-tech felt and microfibre. Which is used for Powell Signature?

Thankds, Ryo

I sent a question to Powell and just got a reply. Signature flutes use the microfiber S2 pads. However, it turned out that my Signature should have come with Straubinger pads from its year of manufacture! :shock:

The S2 pads are very similar to Straubinger and were created to compete with Straubinger. There are some small differences, but they are of similar design and construction and one should expect similar performance from both. It's sort of like the difference between Mercedes and BMW. :D

Seems like that. I just remembered that a repairman at Yamaha told me Straubinger pads had been mounted on my Signature. It was two years ago and I had forgotten! :oops:
