This instrument has a wooden Grenadilla head joint and Grenaditte body, which is impervious to temperature and humidity fluctuations. This piccolo has an exquisite tonal centre and a spacious tonal range, whilst also having accurate pitch.
The high wave embouchure has built up sides, which help focus the sound. In addition, the head joint has a bulb connection to the body, which is a broad metal liner that slips over a metal tenon on the body of the instrument. The use of synthetic OmniPads ensures the most durable and airtight pad seating, as well as making seating more accurate. Their tri-layer structure (of plastic backing, a harder foam middle layer and a layer of surface foam) results in a warmer sound than standard felt pads.
Like all Pearl flutes, their exclusive pinless mechanism is at the heart of the mechanics of this instrument. This design feature significantly reduces the levels of perspiration and body acid that can enter the mechanism, which almost eliminates the corrosion and binding of keys.
This instrument also comes with French pointed key-arms, which means that the key-arms run all the way into the centre of the keys, combining elegance with strength, stability and speed.
In addition, this flute has a one-piece core-bar construction, which results in an extremely reliable mechanism that plays more comfortably, stays in adjustment, and is far easier to service than traditionally constructed flutes!
This piccolo comes with a protective French style hard case, case cover, cleaning rod, cork grease and several cleaning cloths.
