The Hammig family legacy of crafting woodwind instruments began around 1780, passing through eight generations and nearly 230 years. Hammig piccolos are sought after all over the world due to the character found in their sweet, dark sound; a response found in such aged wood.
Piccolos are available in three models. The 650/2 and 650/3 models have a mechanism constructed of nickel silver heavily coated with pure silver. The mechanism of the 650/4 is made of solid sterling silver. All models come standard with the split-E mechanism and French style pointed tonearms attaching the trill, G# and D# keys. Additionally, all models with the exception of the 650/2 model feature a high G# mechanism, enhancing the production of this note.
Each piccolo comes with the choice of Hammig cut, modified wave, or modified wave thin headjoint.
