Galileo Piston Valve Bb/A Piccolo Trumpet 

Galileo has developed a new piccolo trumpet aimed at professional and advanced amateur players. It is often the case that brand-name piccolo trumpets compromise the dimensions of the instrument in order to provide an instrument playable in both Bb and A. In many cases, these instruments work passably in one pitch, but not really very well at all in the second, prompting the player to buying another entire trumpet to complete the pair. The key to the new piccolo trumpet is that they have avoided this compromise by providing separate bell sections for A and Bb tuning, as well as separate 1st and 3rd slides. Through these optimized components and the palette of available bell materials, thicknesses and rims we offer, the Galileo piccolo trumpet boasts versatility in both sound and feel, and is adaptable to the needs of many different players.
