You have a choice of wood or plastic, alloy or gold springs. Mechanism is silver plated. Both play great, and our customers say that our wood piccolo plays better than many handmade piccolos of $3000 and up. Everybody is impressed with the plastic one as well. Ebony wood is cheaper than grenadilla, but the quality of sound is the same. Ebony and grenadilla have similar density but grenadilla is harder to get, so the price is higher. Silver plated keys are of course cheaper than sterling silver, but that too doesn’t matter for the sound and overall performance. After some years you may want to re-plate it. We can do that in our shop at minimal cost.
All our instruments are brand new.
The down payment and all combined rental payments are deductible whenever you decide to purchase the instrument, or you can just keep renting. Prices are listed at muraliflutes.com
