    You really would have to define "loud." If you're just talking in terms of decibels, probably all can be played equally as loud. However, if you're talking about most piercing -- i.e. you can hear it above everything else -- it's going to be a high soprano. This is the reason why you can generally hear one or two piccolo players above the 50 other members of the band.
