Split E MechanismIncluded 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#.
