Which instrument in the ochestra produces the highest notes - the flute or piccolo?
as a matter of fact,the piccolo is higher in sound then the flute! its amazing how such a little instrument can produce a high sound!!!
the instrument with the highest sound is the piccolo. The piccolo is basically a miniature flute, and it has all the same fingerings (what you do with your fingers to make the notes), except you have to make a tighter embrasure (how you purse your lips), and it sounds an octave (eight notes) higher.
One that is capable of very high pitched sounds is the highest notes of the Pipe Organ. The piccolo is the highest wind instrument; small triangles and the highest notes of the orchestra bells & glockenspiel are very high percussion sounds, but synthesizers and the theremin can probably make the highest usable pitches.
