Pick up the piccolo with ease. The Yamaha YPC32 student piccolo lets beginners and doublers move into this beautiful new range of sound smoothly. This is thanks to features like the nickel silver lip plate. If you're wanting to switch between the flute and piccolo, flautists prefer to play a piccolo with a lip plate, which means adjusting is straightforward. Add great piccolo sounds to your repertoire.
Play an instrument you don't need to worry about. The YPC32 student piccolo is ideal for learners, with its durable design. Featuring an ABS Resin body, you still get the classic look and tone of natural wood, but without the fear of warping and damage that usually comes with this. Instead, ABS Resin is maintenance-free. Enjoy long playing-sessions outdoors without worrying about harm from temperature or humidity.

Taking care of your instrument has never been easier. ABS Resin is an incredibly durable synthetic material to make up the body of your piccolo. This means you get exceptional body strength. This strength also comes from the construction, as Yamaha's mechanisms and assembly are known for being first class. Other features like the double bladder pads have a longer life too and will require servicing less.
Your piccolo will look in top condition as well as sounding it. The nickel silver in the headjoint and keywork can be shined effectively with a cloth alone. This wear-resistant construction means this piccolo is ideal for marching and will sparkle while you're doing it.
A playable piccolo is perfect for beginners. If you're starting to learn the piccolo, or choosing an instrument to double with, a piccolo that you can easily create a great tone with is crucial. You get this on the Yamaha YPC32, thanks to its accurate intonation and lip plate. Switching from a flute to your piccolo is far simpler with a lip plate, giving you a similar feel.
Yamaha's top-quality mechanisms let you play smoothly. Concave contoured keys are satisfying under hand, giving you an excellent feel and precise finger position. Yamaha have also added a split E mechanism to the YPC32. These allow the high E to be properly accessed, creating a clearer sound from what can often be an inconsistent note. This mechanism has become a common addition to professional level piccolos, meaning you can learn by making the best sound.
