Found this pic on the Thein website. This curious instrument was special made for "German Brass". Think it is pitch in high Bb.

I wonder - are the notes so high that everything can be played in the slide-closed position??

That appears to be much smaller than the normal Thein piccolo that I have seen which is pictured below.



And here's Tom's paired with his Contrabass:

I have played the thein picolo trombone. Possions are about 1, 1.5 cm appart. Took me about 10 minutes to get a feel for it and play something recogisable on it.

picolo/picolo how small can you go ???

The picolo has 7 positions. So I guess the picolino (Italian for small picolo) has 7 to.

Does anyone besides German brass and Tom Izzo even own one? I'm looking for recordings (preferably video+audio) but can't seem to find a single one (I've heard German brass did a recording with it at one point).

I've seen German brass play all their tiny trombones... the guy (a trumpet player)only plays two notes on the really tiny one... I think it ran, alto, soprano, sopranino,piccolo,very silly one. All used in 'peanut vendor'.
