Hybrid Piccolo that Blurs the Line Between Intermediate and Professional

With a natural Grenadilla wood headjoint and a composite Grenaditte body, the PFP165E is a masterpiece of an instrument that blurs the line between intermediate and professional-level piccolos. Thanks to the wood headjoint, the 165E produces the rich, complex sound that advanced players crave. Additionally, this innovative instrument features a body made from Grenaditte – a proprietary composite material with improved acoustic characteristics over plastic. This unique material has the same weight, appearance, and feel as wood, while remaining stable against temperature and humidity fluctuations. Our Sweetwater flutists also love how coupled together, the wood headjoint and composite body create a piccolo with superb sound and playability. And with other features like a traditional-cut headjoint, split E mechanism, and Pearl's patented 1-piece Core-bar, this is the perfect instrument for both professionals and advancing players.

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 and key adjustments.

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!
