(Dresden, c.1798) Ebony original in the Miller Collection, Washington, also available in boxwood, following the one in the Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag. Although neither original is signed, we are quite sure they are both from the workshop of Heinrich Grenser. a=430, 415.

H. Grenser piccolo by Folkers & Powell

The Instrument

The design of both our originals, their bore profile, tonehole locations, and turning style, is such a close match with the flutes made in the Grenser workshop while Heinrich was its master that their origin there is all but certain. The piccolo has a clear but not shrill sound, and can be played in tune, at least by piccolo players.

The Music

Piccolo music.

No sound sample is available for this instrument.

Order options

The piccolo is available as a special order only.
