Grenaditte 105E Series
The Pearl Piccolo series is most known for the PFP-105E model which features a proprietary “Grenaditte” composite material for the headjoint and the body. This material offers better stability than wood, as it is impervious to temperature & climate fluctuations, yet still possesses a more complex tone than a plastic model.
Pearl offers 2 different headjoint models for their piccolo. The Wave & the Standard. The wave helps to facilitate more air in to the body of the piccolo thus improving response and overall upper register performance. The Standard cut will require more from the player which generally will give a bit mellower tone, but be more difficult to obtain precise response in the upper range of the piccolo. For most customers, the sacrifice of the slightly brighter tone of the wave headjoint is worth the massive improvement in performance and response, which is why we overwhelming recommend the wave headjoint to our customers.
Every 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!
