A top instrument
Der Hubi, 26.11.2009
In my opinion this is the best Piccolotrompete, which is currently available on the market. The Schilke P5-4 has been setting standards for piccolotrums for several decades.
The sound is clear and bright and is ideal for playing in ensembles, orchestras or solos. Although the sound of the trumpet is very bright, it is never too pointed or broken.
The intonation is absolutely perfect, you do not need any auxiliary handles in the 3rd octave. Each sound is cleanly separated and pearls as if one plays on a large B. The only downside that can be seen here is the missing trigger, or ring on the 3rd valve to equalize the combination 1-3 or 1-2-3. However, this trumpet has a completely different sound color as soon as a trigger or ring is attached. This can be tested and heard when playing BG Piccolo by Schilke.
The sound is certainly not so dark and soft as with a Scherzer piccolo, but exactly the Schilke typical tone makes the charm of this trumpet. Whether the trumpet silvered, or gilded play would be taste, I find the gilded Piccolo has a somewhat rounder sound. Ultimately, I can only make the judgment that this Piccolotrompete fulfilled my claims fully and I have never regretted to have bought me this instrument. The intonation is very good in B and A, being excellent in A.
