My daughter, grade 7, had begun to show interest in learning the Piccolo. She has been playing the flute since the beginning of 4th grade. Could anyone recommend brands/ models that would be a good starter.
Thanks!

I think you first think fo material, to buy, you can get silver(plated, or solid), plastic, and wood
I think plastic and wood are great, I do not like silver at all, to shrill soundind, a wooden one may be to advanced, and you might not want to spend the money for it if she does not stick with it, so In my opinion plastic would be good(i could be wrong) i like he combonation of a solid silver headjoint and plastic body
some brands to look at could be

Gemeinhardt Modesl---Silver-4SP-4S-4SS-plastic-4P-4PMH(silver head)-4PSH(solid silver head)
Jupiter Models---silver 301-plastic-303(plastic body) and 305
Yamaha Models---silver YPC 30-plastic-YPC 32(silver head)
and more like Armstrong, and Emerson.

Hope this helps and was not to confusing.

The Pearl piccolo is not a plastic picc, it is Grenadite. They are wonderful.

what is the difference between grenaditte and plastic? is it just that the grenaditte is a type of plastic that has a copyright on it or is there a makeup difference as well?


p.s. id recommend the gemeinhardt 4p if youre looking for a cheap plastic piccolo. emerson also makes a decent plastic picc. comparable to the gemeinhardt, thought maybe a few extra dollars. the scale on it is surprisingly good... better than the yamaha. and cheaper as well. i think the yamaha 32 is overpriced for what it is.

Grenaditte is a wood/resin combination, not plastic.

<Added>

If I can find the page that explains it again, I will post it.
Joe could probably give you the best answer since he is working for Pearl now.
