  • The Model Q9S piccolo trumpet produces a beautiful singing sound with marvelous projection and easy, centered response in all registers. Similarly to our Custom Series Piccolo Trumpet, this instrument is agile enough to perform the most delicate solo and chamber music, and offers power enough to project through the largest ensembles. Our piccolo bells are handcrafted using the same artisanal processes employed in the manufacturing of our larger bells, resulting in the same superior playing characteristics and richness of sound. The solid four-valve cluster with nickel-silver balusters adds stability and clarity to the playing feel of the instrument, while the unique, ergonomic placement of the fourth valve allows it to be played comfortably by either the right or the left hand. The instrument comes complete with two tunable leadpipe bits, allowing the player to perform in B or in A on trumpet-shank mouthpieces.
