M. Wenner Piccolo
Additional charge for tuning slide
Despite much painstaking effort, we were unable to find an original piccolo that would be suitable as a model for a well functioning instrument tuned at today’s common pitches; a=430Hz to a=415 Hz. For this reason, the piccolo we build is a unique three-piece model, although it corresponds to the preserved original as far as construction principles are concerned. The fact that our piccolo has made its way into many prominent orchestras fills us with pride.
We make the piccolo using either European boxwood or grenadilla with a screw-cork. We supply the instrument at pitches of a=415 Hz or a=430 Hz. At a=392, the Piccolo is designed liked a small Hotteterre flute. The Piccolo is also available in a four-keyed version with additional long F lever and can have extra tuning slide.
