Pre-Owned barely used Seaman Storm piccolo:

This piccolo was owned for less than a year and played very little. It is in mint-like new condition. The Storm piccolo body and head are made of composite synthetic material and padded with  synthetic pads. The mechanism is silver plated with a split E key and the headjoint is the very popular wave model that is responsive with a nice, easy to control tone. The Seaman Storm piccolos are so sought after that they are now backordered from the maker until summer and will experience a price increase. It is hard to call this one used, the owner traded it in for the all wood model within less than a year since purchasing it without a mark on it or any pad wear. We will offer it with an adjustment warranty as if it were new!

The new price is $1,299  Sale price: $1,100   (actual photo is coming soon)
