Wood PiccoloÂ â€¯vs Silverâ€¯Â PiccoloÂ
Most professional levelâ€¯Â piccolosÂ â€¯are made fromâ€¯Â wood, but they also have a conical bore. Most metal â€¯piccolosÂ â€¯have a cylindrical bore.â€¯Â In the piccolo'sâ€¯ range, the conical bore imparts a sweeter tone, while the cylindrical bore tends toward a shrill tone.Â
Theâ€¯Â piccoloÂ â€¯is half the size of aâ€¯Â fluteÂ and playsÂ higher notes than the â€¯fluteÂ â€¯with a range an octave above.Â Itâ€™s aÂ member of the flute family, but is aÂ wellÂ knownÂ instrument in its own right. Whilst it may not be as popular as some of its sibling instruments, the Piccolo is an enchanting instrument with an extremely distinct and beautiful sound. It often lends a light, high-pitched sound to musical pieces.Â
