Our bandmaster has approached me because someone in our non-competing community band would like us to play Penny Lane (by the beatles). I am the nearest thing they have to a soprano player, and I am not very good. I am considering buying a piccolo trumpet to play the piece. Several questions arise: 1. Would it be easier than trying to play it on my sop? 2. How good are the cheap piccolo trumpets (or how much would I need to pay to get something playable?) 3. Would you consider this as an option of you were in my shoes?
