"Breathing New Life into Classic Instruments"
Bach Stradivarius Model 196 Piccolo Trumpet in Bb/A Professional Model.
Professional Model 196 4 valve Piccolo.
Bore: Standard (.401) Balanced resistance for better endurance.
Overall Condition: Very good. The minor dings were repaired some scratching remains from use and repair but does not affect the tone or intonation of this nice piccolo.
Tone: Crisp, bright and clear. The Stradivarius Piccolo has a larger throated bell than a Schilke P5-4 and generally plays with a slightly fuller tone. This particular horn has a bright scintillating tone that projects well and plays with a surprisingly big sound for a piccolo. The high range is free and it does not feel stuffy. This horn is ready to be played at weddings and Christmas concerts and the high parts in the orchestral music of Bach and Handel where brilliance and prominence is needed.
