    Took our piccolo, a Yamaha YPC-61, to our normal tech said that it needed some pads replaced, headjoint tenon(?) spins, and the headjoint has a crack. We were told that it would be a while before it could be tended to, but next semester is starting soon & needed then. So, I am looking for a tech...

    I play flute in a concert band and recently borrowed Yamaha YPC 62 to learn a new instrument. After a month or so and wanting my own, I auditioned a handful of piccolos at a local store - New and used Yamaha YPC 62, Pearl 105 and 165 with and without wave heads and a used Emerson Boston Legacy...

    Good Afternoon all! I was wondering if anyone knows anything about either of the above mentioned brand's D Flat piccolos, years they were produced, the positives and negatives of both types (unless you're only familiar with one or the other), if they tend to have quite a bit of intonation...

    Hello, I have had this flute & piccolo sitting around for quite a while. I don't know much/if anything about them. I was given them used by a relative in or around 1999. The flute says "Artley Nogales, Ariz 4-0" with a number that says "435351" and it also says "SILVER." The piccolo says...

    My 13-year-old daughter has been playing the flute for three years and begged me for a piccolo for her 14th birthday. I bought a used Yamaha YPC 30 for $249 at Sam Ash last night and have 30 days to return it for a full refund. Did I make a wise purchase? They also have a used Gemeinhardt...

    Although I have been doubling for musicals for several years on saxes/clarinets/flute, I only recently expanded to piccolo. After practicing piccolo intensely for the last few weeks to bring it up to scratch, it sounds great which makes me very happy! But now I'm struggling with pitching on...
