These piccolos are handcrafted by accomplished artisans and have bodies of top grade grenadilla. The YPC-82 features a precious metal head joint compared to the YPC-81 which features a headjoint of grenadilla.
The YPC-82MÂ precious metalÂ head joint responds and projects differently to a wooden head. It is quite a subjective preference, perhaps they are a little brighter sounding but it's something to test to see if you like. Some players prefer the embouchure plate as it moreÂ closely replicates the flute embouchure plate, inÂ this scenario the YPC-82 would be an excellent option if you're looking for a wooden pro model with solid silver head.
