I played this piccolo trumpet in a brass choir for a number of years and I always loved the way it sounded and more importantly, felt. Most piccolos feel stuffy and have a lot of resistance. I felt a comfortable level of resistance with this horn. I never struggled with intonation. The sound has a lot of color- bright when I need it but can darken up with the right mouthpiece. Only complaint is the cornet shank receiver, but you get used to it. Very easy to play and well worth owning!
