The Piccolo G trumpet continues the evolution which began with the B/A-Piccolo. Its sound even more resembles the “big” trumpets. Played in an orchestra with a mute, it can hardly be distinguished from a trumpet at a lower pitch.
This Piccolo is a beneficial supplement for players who appreciate the feeling of a “big” trumpet on a Piccolo. Similar to the B/A-Piccolo, it has a very easy response.
Its response is in no way inferior to that of other Piccolo trumpets.
