Solid Intermediate Level Piccolo, Great for Outdoors

Purchased this piccolo almost 2 years ago new for a double in an outdoor band I play in. It has worked just great! Tone isn't bright and piercing like an all-metal pic or a beginner level instrument, which was what I was trying to avoid (you get what you pay for people!). I recommend the wave head joint, especially for flute players just switching over to piccolo. It really helps focus the airstream and "lead" your lips where they need to be. While it's not QUITE as colorful a sound as real wood, it has a sweet, pure tone and is MUCH more durable than a wood pic--I never have to worry about bringing it outside/inside or anything that would risk cracking on a wood piccolo! If you're looking for a solid, versatile indoor/outdoor pic that will not break the bank, the Storm is a great option!

Good piccolo for all seasons

Made out of special materials, hence qualitative tone and accurate pitch is assured for the hassle performance irrespective of high humid or hot or cold temperature around. Wave headjoint is carefully designed and made with synthetic wood like material for the effective airflow and the tone is warm, and glowing with semi dark shade (not too shrill as metal or dark as wood). Low maintenance requirement and the price is neither cheap nor much high.

I've seen a lot of piccolos over the years, but this is the first one I can recommend. The tone is very close the wood, the keys are masterfully made and assembled, the intonation is (surprisingly) very stable. It's tough, too- my 14 y/o has even dropped it twice on concrete (not recommended) without damage. This instrument has had NO issues through 2 marching seasons, which is something I cannot say about any Pearl, Yamaha or even lesser Gemeinhardt piccs I've used. I also recommend the "wave" head joint as the tone is simply beautiful. The ease of play is remarkable- no need for alternate fingerings! The price is good, too.
