General - Hammig Piccolo 650/4

For well over 200 years, handmade wood piccolos from the Philipp Hammig workshop have been recognized as instruments of superior design, innovation, and craftsmanship. Acclaimed for their rich, deep tonal character, Hammig Piccolos are crafted of the finest seasoned African Grenadilla and cocus woods. The Hammig scale provides the ideal balance between intonation and ease of response throughout all registers.

The Hammig 650/4 piccolo has following standard features:

  • handmade Grenadilla wood body and head
  • Sterling silver mechanism
  • standard pitch A=442
  • off-set G and large G# lever
  • French-style pointed tonearms attaching the trill key, G# and D#
  • leather case, case cover and cleaning rod
  • Straubinger pads
  • split E mechanism - assures effortless production of the high E; ideal venting of the toneholes is acheived as the upper G remains open while the lower G closes when the high E is fingered
  • high G# mechanism - (excluding model 650/2) eliminates the necessity of employing an alternate fingering when playing the high G#; adjusts the venting height of both thumb keys when the G# lever is pressed, increasing the clarity and stability of high G#
  • choice of headjoint cut
  • 6-month headjoint exchange

Hammig Guarantee - Each Hammig piccolo is extensively tested and regulated in the United States and is guaranteed against defects in manufacturing to the original purchaser when purchased from an authorized Hammig supplier. This limited warranty covers defects in workmanship and materials as well as cracking for a period of one (1) year from date of purchase.
