Hammig Wooden Piccolo Grenadilla Wood with Split E and 3 Headjoints
Philipp Hammig Handmade Wood Piccolo Model 650/2 Serial # 12706. Made from aged African Grenadilla wood with silver-plated keys. The model 650/2 also comes with a split E mechanism. This piccolo also comes with three handcut headjoints. This is an excellent example of a high-end handmade professional piccolo. It is in superb condition and has had limited use. There are no cracks, dings or checks to be found anywhere in the wood and the mechanism is free moving and blemish free. The instrument has a warm sound and facile response. Top octave is stable and dependable. Pitch is consistent throughout all 3 octaves at forte and pianissimo. It has the Hammig scale at A=442 and is easily tunable within a range both slightly below and above that pitch. The three headjoints are all excellent and each has its own unique playing characteristics. This offers a wide variety of musical and performance choices. Headjoints are as follows. Silver Headjoint is strong and bright and is also great when playing in a colder environment. Traditional Hammig wood headjoint is dark and sweet sounding with good projection. Wave style with thinned wood tube and raised lip-plate is very focused and clear sounding. The piccolo has Straubinger pads and was serviced recently in preparation for sale. It comes with two cases; the original Hammig leather case which carries one headjoint and a student level case that will carry the piccolo with all three heads. It may also benefit from an adjustment in 6 months or so after the pads, corks and wood react to general humidity and climate in their new home locale. Feel free to ask questions.
