Hammig Cut

Provides a dark, sweet sound with depth and projection throughout all registers. This style offers a comfortable
amount of resistance and is very colorful and powerful.

Modified Wave

Affords a great amount of stability and control with an extremely focused rich sound. A very gratifying response
and wide dynamic range are characteristic qualities.

Modified Wave Thin

Thin-wall version of the modified wave style featuring
a hand-carved raised embouchure plate. This innovative
design combines the stability and clarity of the modified
wave style with the flexibility of thin-wall tubing.

Mechanisms

Split E Mechanism

Included on all Hammig Models. Effortless production of the high E is assured by the Hammig piccolo's standard split E mechanism. Ideal venting of the toneholes is achieved as the upper G remains open while the lower G closes when the high E is fingered.

High G# Mechanism

Included on Models 650/3, 650/4 and 651/4. Available on the Hammig 650/3, 650/4 and 651/4, the high G# mechanism eliminates the necessity of employing an alternate fingering when playing the high G#. This innovative mechanism adjusts the venting height of both thumb keys when the G# lever is pressed, increasing the clarity and stability of high G#.
