Composite Piccolo with All the Positive Qualities of Wood

A truly revolutionary instrument, the remarkable Pearl PFP105E piccolo brings exquisite tone, precise intonation, and impeccable craftsmanship. This innovative instrument's headjoint and body are constructed from Grenaditte, a proprietary composite material that shares many of the positive characteristics of wood. Our Sweetwater flutists love how these qualities give the 105E the same weight, appearance, and feel as a wood piccolo. The material also has the added benefit of remaining unaffected by temperature and humidity fluctuations. On top of all that, Grenaditte gives the instrument a richer, more complex sound than a plastic piccolo. And with other features like a High Wave-cut headjoint, a split E mechanism, pinless construction, and Pearl's patented 1-piece Core-bar, this is the perfect instrument for both professionals and advancing flutists looking to transition to the piccolo.

Many years of research and production went into the development of Grenaditte. This unique material is a composite blend that mimics the characteristics of wood and offers better stability. For one, it possesses a more rich and complex tone than plastic, giving this instrument a higher quality sound befitting of even some professional flutists. It also has a similar weight and density as wood, which will feel right at home for any experienced piccolo player. Wood tends to shrink or expand with changes to external factors such as climate, temperature, and humidity. Since Grenaditte is a composite material, it's impervious to these issues, saving on unwanted repair costs. This also makes it an ideal instrument for outside use, such as marching band or other outdoor performances.

Pinless construction and 1-piece core-bar

For over 50 years Pearl Flutes have distinguished themselves with a commitment to innovation. Case in point, their unique one-piece core-bar construction, which mitigates the wear and tear that occurs on piccolos constructed using traditional techniques. Pearl Flutes' 1-piece core-bar extends from the high C to the king post, providing players with a durable and reliable mechanism that guarantees a comfortable playing experience and is easier to service. Additionally, every Pearl piccolo utilizes the company’s patented pinless construction, eliminating common issues that players face with traditional instruments, like snagging their clothes on protruding needles or damage from perspiration build-up and corrosion.

Pearl Flutes: traditional craftsmanship meets modern innovation

The Pearl Instrument Company is primarily known for crafting high-quality drum sets and percussion instruments. However, since 1968, Pearl has quietly earned a reputation for designing and manufacturing exceptional flutes that merge traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge designs. With a focus on ergonomics, functionality, tone, and articulation, Pearl flutes are made with musicians in mind, and much of the company’s innovations were inspired by feedback from the world’s top flute masters. Offering a variety of headjoints and finishes, Pearl Flutes has an instrument to fit your specific needs!
