Roy Seaman Piccolo – Handmade with Reform Lip

 

For more than 30 years, Roy Seaman grenadilla wood piccolos have been the preferred choice of discerning players worldwide. Handcrafted to produce the warm, rich sound that blends so beautifully with other acoustic instruments, these instruments have long been recognized for their outstanding craftsmanship and performance. Features include a conical bore, and a special Seaman scale designed for consistent response and intonation throughout all registers.

Here is a superb opportunity to purchase a beautiful handmade piccolo by the craftsman. Made by him not long before he died, this was in his unmarked stock when Gemeinhardt purchased the company in 1997, they then gave it the Gemeinhardt engraving and serial number 115. Please note that this is therefore a handmade Roy Seaman piccolo and NOT a Gemeinhardt made piccolo. Roy Seaman piccolos are made from seasoned Grenadilla wood, offering a beautifully warm and rich tone, the keys are solid silver and it has Seaman’s classic split E mechanism.

 

This particular piccolo has had one owner from new and was purchased in 1998 from TopWind in London. They confirmed the provenance of the piccolo and that it was indeed handmade by Roy Seaman. It has been hardly used and is in beautiful condition with a gorgeous handmade reform lip.
