This is a great horn. Though it's quite difficult to tune with the slide, it's very easy to lip-tune as you play with this pic. The fourth valve helps for the out-of-tune D's and C#'s, and allows you to go all the way down to the low C# (though it gets quite out of tune!). The case is very compact (the pic itself is amazingly small!), so much so that I can easily fit three of them into one clarinet locker at my school! I have the silver-plated version, and the finish looks almost identical to my Bach Strad. And it's cheap, too! My only minor objection is that it is a little difficult to hold (the only way I have discovered is to sort of cup it in your non-playing hand), though you get used to this after a while.
The Amati piccolo trumpet is a great horn to buy. It not only looks good but it sounds good too. You should really think of buying one before people find out how good it is because then it will go up in price fast. My teacher said that I played as well as his $3000 piccolo trumpet! Well there is only one way to know if it is good--Buy it now and you won't regret it, but if you don't then you will never know. Take it from me, I bought it and I love it! It is the greatest horn i have played and the cheapest one too! So go ahead and buy the Amati piccolo trumpet! You won't regret it!
The Amati Bb/A piccolo tp is definitely a quality instrument! I got it in silver finish and it looks great. The mechanics work fine, although I had to put "La Tromba" valve oil on to get the valves running perfectly (the normal Amati oil they put in the case doesn't do the job). There are no manufacturing defects, all the slides fit, the finish is perfect, the general look is impressive. The trumpet really is small (it's the first piccolo I've ever played, so I think it's normal), but you can easily figure something out: I put a finger through the ring on the 3rd valve slide... As far as the intonation goes, I found it pretty good, even to tune with the leadpipe (both A and Bb) was really untroublesome and effective. And lip tuning is indeed very easy. My range is still restricted to 1 and 1/2 octaves (F to high Bb), but the fourth valve gets you down to B (all four valves), which you can easily lip tune. The C (D, 1st and 3rd) is actually very tuned, you might need the 4th valve for the B (C#). The mouthpiece they give is nice but not my size... The hard case the tp comes with is also very stylish. Personally I'd need a bit of acclimatizing and routine on this instrument to play satisfyingly (being more different from a normal Bb horn than what I thought). Buy it, it's cheap and cool!
