Introducing the NEW Nagahara Mini!

At last, it's here, the Nagahara Mini has arrived to make a change in the history of the Piccolo!

After 15 years of research and development, the Mini is finally ready to be released and take center stage covering all the repertoire of the piccolo and flute.

Featuring a cylindrical bore on the body with a tapered headjoint shape, enlarged toneholes and an extended range down to low B, this "piccolo" is nothing like you've seen before. Hence the name "Mini" as this is exactly what the piccolo was originally meant to be: A miniature flute.

Some advantages of the Mini include a more relaxed embouchure, intonation tendencies similar to the flute, a wider dynamics range, and a larger pallet of tone colors. The Mini will be available in African blackwood and other exotic woods with plastic inserts on the toneholes for improved seal and resonance.

Get your mini today with the special introductory  price offered for a limited time only. Don't miss out on the great possibilities, make a big difference with a Nagahara Mini.
