From the brass family the piccolo trumpet measures sixty four centimeters.
A piccolo trumpet has a fourth piston that allows obtaining low notes. Short versions are the most recommended for sound quality and projection.
The smallest of the orchestra’s trumpets can play an octave more than the trumpet and produce a sharp, piercing sound. Generally used in military fanfares and as a soloist in orchestras.
The piccolo trumpet in B flat was invented in the middle of the last century for the interpretation of high register scores.
This instrument, magnified by Maurice André, is classified as aerophone because the sound is produced by the vibration of the air column.
We can buy models in D that have a more circular shape.
