Bought as a 'doubler' for my Grade 7 Flutest daughter. (I would have given it 5 stars, however as she's yet to master the picc, - not currently best placed to make that assessment). At first attempt to play she was delighted that she was able to knock out a few decent notes, which I'm sure will only improve with practise! Totally impressed with Thomann's service - from the excellent, competitive prices - easy & straightforward ordering service - to the fantastic regular updates re shipping. Item arrived within a week (to the UK and included a bank holiday weekend) Can't fault the whole buying experience from them - despite my initial concerns of purchasing overseas, I can strongly reccommend to anyone not to hesitate using this company. Thank you Thomann and staff :)
I bought this piccolo as a flute doubler. I needed a piccolo that would be suitable for playing indoors and outdoors in all different sorts of weather conditions. I researched piccolos for a long while, and then decided this was the best option for me. When it arrived I was blown away with the sound quality, the responsiveness, the tuning quality and when I played it with my marching band I was so impressed. Having made the switch from just playing flute to playing piccolo as well, I was expecting it to be difficult at first, but I had no problems at all with getting a sound. The top B and C are still a little bit difficult to play, however, this is just me needing to tighten my embouchure a little more. Overall, I am so impressed with this piccolo and would recommend it highly.
