This piccolo is perfect for first-time piccolo buyers looking to buy the most affordable piccolo they can, that will still play in tune, sound good, not be shrill or harsh sounding, and play every note. Not every beginner piccolo on the market can even play every note. Gemeinhardt, who has been making piccolos for over 60 years, has the ability to manufacture a piccolo of this quality for such a low price. A quality piccolo design like this takes years of research and development from a high-tech manufacturing facility like Gemeinhardt.
The remarkable PFP-165E Piccolo is the culmination of years of exploration and research into the creation of a totally new material - grenaditte. Precise pitch, an exquisite tonal center and a spacious dynamic range are all to be found within this new, innovative instrument. Grenaditte is impervious to temperature fluctuations, ensuring Pearl's remarkable performance anywhere. In line with the entire Pearl flutes range, the PFP-165E is manufactured with Pearl’s world renowned Pinless mechanism on its silver-plated keys as standard and is the only piccolo on the market to feature this innovation. If all of these were not sufficient, the Pearl piccolo includes French pointed arms, a bulb design headjoint with a high wave, and a Split-E mechanism.
