The 650/2 and 650/3 models have a mechanism constructed of nickel silver heavily coated with pure silver. All models come standard with the Split E mechanism and French style pointed tonearms attaching the trill, G# and D# keys. Additionally, the 650/3 model features a High G# mechanism, enhancing the production of this note. 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#.
Split E mechanism: Included 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.
