These piccolos are the culmination of years of exploration and research into the creation of a totally new material – Grenaditte. Precise pitch, an exquisite tonal center and a spacious dynamic range are all to be found within this new, innovative instrument. Grenaditte is impervious to temperature fluctuations, ensuring Pearl’s remarkable performance anywhere. In line with the entire Pearl flutes range, the PFP-105E and PFP-165E are manufactured with their patented pinless mechanism as standard and is the only piccolo on the market to feature this innovation. If all of these were not sufficient, the Pearl piccolo includes French pointed arms, a bulb design headjoint with a high wave, and a Split-E mechanism.
