#beginquote# New piccolos in the $100-200 range (even some UNDER $100) are pretty much worthless. The only place in the world you can make a piccolo that would retail for around a hundred or two would be China or India, neither of which has a reputation for churning out high quality band instruments, or even ACCEPTABLE quality for that matter. It MIGHT play OK for a while, but eventually you'll have to get it repaired(i.e. it WILL break. No question.) No self-respecting instrument technician will want to work on it, if you DO find one to work on it no one will want to warranty the repair work because of the poor quality of the cheap metals used as well as the poor tooling on the parts. Buy a used piccolo made in USA or even Japan and you'll be miles ahead. #endquote#
