Gebruder Monnig Grenadilla Piccolo with Reform Lip
Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a lovely handmade piccolo from the Gebrüder Mönnig workshop in Markneukirchen, Germany. Gebrüder Mönnig have been handmaking instruments for over 100 years alongside the Hammig workshop in Markneukirchen. Their work is of the highest standard and these piccolos have a beautiful tone.
This particular piccolo is made of Grenadilla wood with German silver keywork and has been recently repadded and fully serviced. The wood does not have any cracks or repair and the silver is in excellent condition with light scratches/tarnish. I suspect it was made in the 1960’s, the keywork is German silver and it is pitched at 445Hz which is International or German pitch and can be adjusted down by pulling out the head.
This is a professional handmade piccolo of the highest quality and a superb purchase at an excellent price. It also has the added bonus of a reform lip which helps to focus the breath and makes playing easier than just an embouchure hole.
