Up for sale is my 19th. Century antique six key Cocus piccolo in Eb. This piccolo is in very good condition, with all parts present, bar the ferrule on the foot. The broad, knurled bands and keys are made from nickel silver, and the instrument is in full playing order. Stamped on the barrel is; G. Jones’s Commercial Road business was established in 1851 and he remained in the vicinity until 1887. There is one repaired crack in the barrel, which is fully sound (see photo 6). This piccolo plays for me at A = 440 Hz. With a tuning slide extension of 6 mm. The F and Eb (E and D on a D instrument) need some lipping down to pitch, and the open D (C#) benefits from lipping up. The keys are stamped with “F” on their undersides (see photo 5). The item “Antique Vintage Old Wooden Eb Six Key Flute Piccolo Jones London” is in sale since Sunday, May 3, 2020.
