Di Zhao Rosewood Piccolo – Model DZP301
Upgraded with Pisoni S2 Pads!
Di Zhao Flutes & Piccolos are the result of the expertise that Di Zhao has gained over his career as a professional flautist as well as on the manufacturing side of the professional flute market. With over 20 years of experience at companies such as Verne Q. Powell & Wm.S. Haynes, Di Zhao has taken his wealth of experience and poured them in to these wonderful flutes that now bare his name. The Di Zhao Rosewood Piccolo (DZP301) is an unparalleled performance offering unlike anything else on the market!
At the center of the Di Zhao Rosewood Piccolo is the professional hand-cut headjoint. This headjoint gives the perfect blend of tonal depth and warmth and combines it with quick response and articulation. Paired with exceptional quality Rosewood for a broader & sweeter tone, custom ergonomic keywork, the Di Zhao Wood Piccolo will impress any level of performer!
Free Upgrade to Pisoni S-2 Professional Pads
Piccolo Pads can have a phenomenal impact on the performance, feel & response of a flute. Professional piccolos tend to see a major upgrade in pads over intermediate models. Normally, this model of Di Zhao piccolo uses a standard felt based, intermediate pad. However, in order to offer our customers more, we have Di Zhao build all of our Rosewood Piccolo models with an upgrade to the Pisoni S2 professional pads. While this costs us more, we offer it to our customers at no additional charge online!
In the case of the Di Zhao Handmade flutes, the Pisoni S-2 pad was chosen. This pad uses a precisely machined Delrin half-shell base in order to provide a firm feel to your new Di Zhao piccolo. This Delrin base is then covered with a very thin layer of a synthetic high-tech felt that is then covered in a double bladder skin layer. This setup provides a firm feel and for more power and response from the piccolo as the pad does not absorb the acoustics of the piccolo like a traditional felt and instead reflects more sound and power out.
The Pisoni S-2 pads were designed for high-end professional instruments and are a marvelous pairing to the Di Zhao Rosewood Piccolo. However, these pads do require a significantly more skilled and trained technician in order to adjust and regulate. Kessler & Sons Music has fully trained technicians who have been trained how to properly handle and work on professional piccolos and the higher end pads associated with them (such as the Pisoni S-2 & Straubinger pads).

Every Di Zhao Rosewood Piccolo we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on your piccolo is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, an instrument (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours!
This is why we perform our setup in our ProShop on your new piccolo before delivering it to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your new piccolo setup flawlessly!
