    I'm looking to buy a quality second hand picc. I just wondered if anyone knows anyone selling one at the moment? I've kind of got scherzer, yamaha or schilke in mind....

    I haven't got one for sale at the moment, but I would add the F Besson to your list - if you find one they can be (if they work with you and your style of playing) as good if not better than those you have already mentioned.
    I have used F Besson piccolos for years and only recently stopped (due to purchasing a handmade, custom Eclipse!), they were made by Kanstul (who also make excellent piccolos of their own).
    My F Besson is now my back up piccolo, in case anything was ever to happen to my Eclipse (God forbid)

    What Mike said!

    I've got an F Besson (Kanstul) and it's fantastic!
