The Powell Handmade Custom piccolo is a good professional piccolo

Powell custom piccolos produce a dark, lyrical tone that truly makes the instrument sound like an extension of the flute.

Powell Custom piccolos feature a strong, colorful sound with excellent intonation throughout the scale. They feature tone holes that are reinforced with phenolic inserts to provide stability throughout the range of the instrument. Each flute is also hand tuned for exceptional performance. Powell offers three headjoint options:

The Classic headjoint is the traditional piccolo headjoint. Often professional piccolo players prefer this style as it provides the most control over the piccolo. 

The Profiled headjoint has a raised “lip plate” that makes the piccolo feel more like a flute.  It is fairly free-blowing and offers an immediate response. There are a number of professionals who prefer this style, as it makes switching quickly between the flute and the piccolo smoother. 

The Wave headjoint has a small rise on each side of the embouchure hole, which provides a medium amount of resistance and offers even control over the octaves.
