Getting a Mini


The Nagahara Mini is a revolutionary new design of the Piccolo, but unlike the Piccolo, the Mini's range is extended down to the low B (sounding the B on the staff) and features a cylindrical bore shape. This instrument is full of color possibilities, a broader range of dynamics with great projection and an ergonomic key design making it a comfortable fit under the performer's hands.


The Mini is the perfect Solo instrument, yet its blending capabilities among other woodwinds are outstanding. Currently the Mini's are being made in African Blackwood, Pink Ivory wood, Olive Wood and Mopane wood. There is much to explore with the Nagahara Mini, the possibilities are endless, so we invite everyone to try the Mini and experience the difference!

How does the trial work?

Are you ready to to embark on a new journey with us? If your answer is YES, then you are ready to join the growing community of Nagahara Mini players!


Our goal is to give every person the opportunity to try the different options within the Nagahara Minis available at any given point. Thus, we aim to provide a selection of  2-4 Minis and extra headjoints on trial for a period of 7 days. Upon the end of this trial period, the customer is able to choose a Mini for purchase.


The base cost for the Mini 7-day trial is $175.00. This includes two Mini's and up to eight additional headjoints of various cuts in your wood selection. Upon request and availability we are able to include more Mini's at an additional cost of $50.00 each (up to 4 Minis max). This fee covers round-trip shipping, shipping insurance and handling services. Should you decide to buy a Mini, the total trial fee paid would be credited towards the final payment of the Mini of your choice. Upon choosing a Mini, the remaining balance for the total cost of the instrument would be due immediately by check or credit card.


So, are you ready to give it a Go?
