Hammig Piccolos

Philipp Hammig Wood Piccolos

For well over 200 years, handmade wooden piccolos from the Philipp Hammig workshop have been recognized as instruments of superior design, innovation and craftsmanship. Crafted from the finest seasoned African granadilla wood, they achieve the deep rich tonal character that Hammig instruments are prized for.

Piccolos are available in four models. All models come standard with the Split E mechanism and French style pointed tonearms attaching the trill, G# and D# keys. Models with the high G# mechanism, enhance production and pitch of this note.  Financing is available on all Hammig Piccolos & Miyazawa Flutes!

Headjoint Description

Hammig Cut

Provides a dark, sweet sound with depth and projection throughout all registers. This style offers a comfortable amount of resistance and is very colorful and powerful.

Modified Wave

Affords a great amount of stability and control with an extremely focused rich sound. A very gratifying response and wide dynamic range are characteristic qualities.

Modified Wave Thin

Thin-wall version of the modified wave style featuring a hand-carved raised embouchure plate. This innovative design combines the stability and clarity of the modified wave style with the flexibility of thin-wall tubing.
