ANAHEIM, Calif. — At Winter NAMM 2011, Yamaha Corporation of America, Band and Orchestral Division will introduce the YPC-62R Professional Piccolo featuring a wave cut head joint affording a great amount of stability and control with an extremely focused rich sound.
A long-time favorite of professional musicians, the YPC-62 can be found in many top orchestras worldwide. Sharing many of the characteristics of the Yamaha hand-crafted series, the YPC-62R features a similar design and boasts a high degree of hand-craftsmanship for excellent intonation and playability.
The new wave cut head joint offers a very gratifying response and a wider dynamic range. It features a body of select, carefully seasoned grenadilla for a warm, full tone with strong projection. A split-E mechanism is added for fingering ease and a ribbed key post construction adds strength, while maintaining accurate key action.
