Re: Flute store in Canada

Any more recent ideas on where to look for piccolos in Southern Ontario?

Re: Trying Piccolos - Lip Plate

I have been trying to work out the timing if I go to the Fluteland to look at piccolos, and also the duty to bring it back legally. If i go, I want to know the actual cost in both Canada and the US. For the models that are available in Canada, it doesn't look like there would be enough of a saving t...

Trying Piccolos - Lip Plate

I am planning to switch from flute to piccolo. I have played flute for many years in a marching band. I had a picc to practice with for about 4 months about 15 years ago, but have only picked it up a few times since then. I have rented a Yamaha YPC32 for a month, since it seemed pointless to try pic...
