<Comment from Yanami Sakahashi, flutist in Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra>
The biggest theme for Piccolo players is how quietly they can play in high notes with the accurate pitch.At R&D stage of this Piccolo from Miyazawa, I asked the engineers for realizing my various ideas and requests that I have felt while playing piccolo for a long time so far.No problems when pianissimo in high notes, and, thanks to lip plate, it is easy to stabilize sounds when changed from flutes, and its sound is as attractive as high notes of flute. If you think, "it is exagerated…"please try it first.
