Professional Piccolo Options

Split-E Mechanism:

The Split-E mechanism is a recommended upgrade for the Professional Piccolo. The Split-E mechanism provides effortless production of the high E. When the right-hand 2nd finger E key is closed, a small bridge reaches over to also close the lower G key.This reduction in the venting of the G keys makes the high E easy to produces even at pianissimo. This feature engages automatically. The pitch and tone color are identical to every other note in this range. The Split-E is a tremendous advantage for this frequently played note on the piccolo
