The Prestige Piccolo
For far too long, the piccolo has been treated as a 'lesser' instrument, with fewer options and more compromises than solutions. For professional players, we have been left with a small handful of quality brands that offer one acoustic model, with the opportunity to choose limited add-ons at a premium price. Honestly, many of these upgrades are crucial to play the instrument at its best, both acoustically and practically.
The Pettry Prestige Piccolo is our first acoustic model, and it is designed to offer an instrument with presence, character, clarity, and stability. After years of acoustic and mechanical research spent studying the craftsmanship of world class makers spanning over a century, the Pettry Prestige Piccolo is the newest development in the modern piccolo. Blending together the brilliance of the best piccolo-making minds in history, we have created an entirely new generation of instruments where compromise is no longer an option.
Handcrafted from aged hardwoods, the Pettry Prestige Piccolo is available in Grenadilla and Mopani, with additional selections of Cocobolo, Kingwood, and Rosewood. Featuring all sterling silver keywork, our piccolos benefit from a fully pinless design for optimum rigidity, durability, and precision of adjustment.
"Fully Loaded" is Our Standard
Where other companies allow you to upgrade your instrument with features, at Pettry Piccolos, we believe that these options are acoustically necessary for a fully functioning instrument. Every Pettry Prestige Piccolo features an all sterling silver, fully pinless mechanism with a vented left hand C key, On/Off Split E Mechanism, and a Brossa F# key. Additionally, every Prestige Piccolo comes with a solid hardwood case, and a custom leather FluterScooter Piccolo Case Cover made exclusively for Pettry Piccolos.
