The actually necessary length correction is compensated by instrument making-technical "tricks" in the instrument. The timbre is full and without sharpnesses. The instrument is played in all 3 tunings perfectly. The big bore favours the air stream and diminished disagreeable counterpressure. The respectable 24-carat gilding supports the noble sound. An intonation correction place in the bell compensates the usual divergences of the 5th and 6th natural tone. The enlargement to the Piccolo G trumpet has the advantage that the blower holds the usually same instrument in hands in three tunings.
We have developed these Piccolo as a tonal alternative to the usual instruments. It should have a dark sound and be applicable in the baroque movement as well as in the orchestra. Matthias Höfs use them in the orchestra, for example, for Bolero, Sacre Printemps or Britten operas. The Ansprache is without down-bows compared with other Piccolo trumpets.
