Pearl Flutes PFP-105 Grenaditte PiccoloThe Pearl-105 piccolo employs composite Grenaditte. As this material is impervious to temperature and humidity, there is no danger of cracking and intonation is much more stable. It has a highwave style headjoint, French pointed arm keys, and pinless construction.

Pearl has found a great niche with this instrument. I don't think any other piccolos in this price range deliver this quality. As on all pearl instruments, the intonation is great, and the keywork is light and comfortable. But unlike their flutes, which to me feel a bit light and dainty, the piccolo feels sturdy and has a nice weight. I have used mine for recording so far, with very good results. The full range of the instrument is satisfying; the lows are round and smooth, and the highs not to shrill. I have played more flute than piccolo, and the Pearl made for an easy transition, as piccolos are more tempermental than flutes.
I play on an Hammig piccolo during symphony season and was playing on a silver Haynes on our outdoor venues. I couldn't justify keeping the $5000. Haynes just for Summer concerts so I sold it and purchased this piccolo to play at outdoor venues. I like this piccolo BETTER than I liked the Haynes. I took it out of the case for the first time, played a few notes and then whizzed up to a high C with very little effort. I am truly impressed! The tone is remarkable! It is a little brighter than the Hammig which is nice for outdoor venues. I can't get a high C out of the Hammig and the B/Bb takes a lot of concentrated effort. Also, the Ab is effortless. I purchased the Hammig with a mechanism that makes the Ab easier to play (a feature that adds about $1000.00 to the price). This piccolo must fit my embrouchure, because the Ab is effortless and easier than the Hammig and the Haynes. We all know that every Summer you NEED that Ab for Stars and Stripes! Keep in mind that if you are switching from a metal piccolo or flute to this type headjoint it is going to require some adjustment in your embrouchure. This is a GREAT piccolo for a super price!
Owning a Pearl flute, I thought this would be a great companion, especially for outdoor performances. And it is a very nice instrument for the most part, except for the highest notes - beginning at B flat & up, the notes just don't play!! And I am so disappointed. Apparently, this is not a problem unique to Pearl - I've tried other instruments and have also heard this from other players with many years of experience that some of the new piccolos they have tried don't seem to easily reach the high register notes (even the Powell piccolos - and this remark came from two experienced players!). This Pearl piccolo is great in the lower registers in both intonation and tone quality, so it is perfect for use in symphony performances. However, if you want to reach the high B flat on Stars and Stripes in the concert band (a pretty important note in that piece, don't you think?), then this may not be the piccolo for you. However, I liked the rest of what this piccolo offers so much that I bought it anyway and am working on alternate fingerings for the high notes.
With this piccolo Pearl has lived up to the reputation they built with their concert and alto flutes. It is a gorgeous instrument. The tone is dark and centered, with a "soul" that I usually only hear with grenadilla. The instrument is very responsive. It has that elusive feel of being a living extension of your breath, rather than being a foreign object you have to fight to control.
I agree with earlier reviews in that the middle octave initially seems more challenging to play. With a little practice, though, you will be able to make that octave sing just like the rest of the picc's range. In fact, I have found myself wondering how I ever had trouble with it before. You have to put the effort in to make it effortless, if that makes any sense.
The high B and C will probably not sound for you right away if you aren't an experienced picc player, but that is not unique to this piccolo. There are some good alternate fingerings to try on the Woodwind Fingering Guide website (Google it). These are piccolo-specific fingerings, not just transposed flute fingerings.
In all, I am extremely satisfied with this piccolo, and with the WWBW service (this is my third woodwind purchase from them, and probably won't be the last). It's hard to put this instrument down - you just want to keep playing it! Professionals with deep pockets will probably ultimately still want a handmade grenadilla picc. But I think this might be the best value out there for anyone else. It is also practically indestructible. I carry it between dry air-conditioned rooms and outdoor Texas summer heat and humidity without any worries.
Just got my piccolo today and only thing on my mind is how much can I sell my other piccolos for because I'm going to die with this one! Love the wing head joint! Overall performance is stunning! This piccolo is a doubler's delight! I'm enjoying the piccolo now! No excuse not to own one if you ever have to play piccolo! Lower register is strong and punchy and the upper register sings like a canary! Very respnsive third octave. The notes are all there! I have no problem with the third octave B and C. This baby sings!!!
