Pearl's remarkable Piccolo PFP-105 was the culmination of years of exploration and research into the creation of a truly revolutionary material – Grenaditte. Precise pitch, an exquisite tone, and a spacious dynamic range are all to be found within this truly innovative instrument. Grenaditte echoes all the positive qualities of wood in appearance, weight, density, and feel. Unlike wood, Grenaditte is impervious to shock, temperature, and moisture fluctuation. Since its launch in 2006, esteemed professional players and music industry experts the world over have greeted the Pearl Piccolo as a phenomenon. In 2010 the PFP-165 was launched featuring a natural Granadilla wood headjoint, and high quality synthetic pads (which are now also available on the 105 model) gaining Pearl the enviable position of straddling the student, intermediate and professional piccolo market. As with the entire Pearl Flute range, the PFP-105 and PFP-165 are manufactured with our world-renowned Pinless Mechanism and are the only piccolos on the market to feature this innovation.
