i am going into high school marching band and need a piccolo. i like gemienhart's but i want people to tell me what a good starter piccolo would be. I have had lessons on the piccolo for the past 2 summers then i was using my friends piccolo but she goes to college this fall. also if anyone knows of a good place to get them second hand but not really expensively i would be grateful. Thanks!!
Also the place i was asking about for an instrument would have to be quite near San Diego.
