Piccolo in A/Bb

Wide sound spectrum with maximum variability

The Galileo Piccolo combines both tunings in an ideal way in one instrument. The gimmick: two separate bells, as well as 1st and 3rd slides for both the A and Bb versions. The components are optimised for A and Bb each. The rich palette of bell options differ in terms of material, wall thicknesses and/or rim shapes. This creates a piccolo with maximum variability, offering the musician room for a wide range of sounds spectrum.

  • Hand-hammered bell with a diameter of 105 mm made of a one-piece cut
  • Lightweight bronze 4-valve section with stainless steel valves
  • Nickel silver slides, slide tubes made from gold brass
  • Bore: 11.5 mm
  • Exchangeable bell
  • 2 leadpipes, for Bb and A
  • Exchangeable leadpipes
  • Amado water key on the 3rd valve slide and 4th valve slide
  • Trigger on 3rd slide
