Though piccolo trumpets are primarily used to play the exciting yet demanding 1st trumpet parts in Baroque literature, modern composers have also begun to incorporate them in contemporary' and even popular-music. Yamaha piccolos are easy to play, have a beautiful tone, and excellent intonation. They are converted to either Bb or A by changing the leadpipes provided. A unique fourth valve design incorporates a rotary valve on the 3rd valve slide.

Pros: wonderful response, easy to play

I don't even own a piccolo trumpet, and I probably wouldn't even think about buying one until I tried this one. I had tried to play piccolo in the past, but it was just too wierd or hard. But I picked this thing up in the store and could play the Brandenburg with ease. Really truly a great horn.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of play
Cons: Cannot play low C

I've had this horn for 15 years now and have tried many other piccolos since. Hands down, this is the best orchestral piccolo out there. If you want to produce a large sound, this is the horn for you. I have performed Petrouchka and Rite of Spring countless times on this horn with ease, watching my colleagues have struggle on their P5-4's. But, it can also tone down considerably for baroque rep. Some people complain about the funny fourth valve, but once you get used to it, you will never want to go back.
