Made between 1866 & 1878 by Francois Millereau of Paris, with nickel keywork. This piccolo is missing its cork assembly and three ferrules. The D tone hole has been repaired. Needs an overhaul. Too good to be left as it is, this rare old instrument needs a new and loving owner.

HOFINGER of Brussels.

Grenadilla with silver lip-plate and riser on plated headjoint tube. Pitch around A=437.


Florent Hofinger established his business in 1900, and died in 1945. His instruments have a style of their own, and this piccolo is a good example, featuring e.g. art-deco trill touches and G# lever.  


Very good condition - would benefit from a service. Comes in its original case.

Haynes picc 1 small

YAMAHA YPC62 piccolo. Excellent condition and serviced for sale.  


This piccolo has seen little use, being owned from new by someone for whom the flute is not the main instrument. Plating is pristine (not always the case on Yamaha piccolos) and the woodwork is perfect.



Y62 ED

YAMAHA YPC32 piccolo.

Excellent condition.  


Yamaha's entry-level piccolo has remained a solid performer for many years. This one is a lovely example with very few hours playing under its belt. There are no marks in the silver-plating and the pads are clean.
