Rotary valve piccolo trumpets generally produce a warmer sound than their piston valve counterparts with more scope for tonal variation. They are usually easier to play softly whilst being capable of producing great volume when required. Rotary piccolo trumpets are preferred by many players for Baroque repertoire.
