    In the 18th century pitch was not standardized as it is today. So the corps fifes are very sharp to a modern nominal Bb fife, although still called Bb. We call them "Old Pitch" fifes to distinguish them from "traditional fifes". Bb fifes are the most common fife in use today.

    I got the maple wood fife at the colonial Williamsburg in va. It looks like the one shown to you, but a wood color. It really pretty and I think a good tone. I’ve been playing flute for 3 1/2 years a the piccolo for a little longer than a year. It comes with a little book, with how to play, fingering chart and a few songs, including Yankee Doodle, Chester and Free America or British Grenadiers. It works for me so far, I’ve learn the notes. The one bad thing is, instead of 13 $ for plastic, it’s 30 ish $. I like it a lot, if you like music, I recommend this.
