        Yah man, still would be your best bet, and it still sounds nice.

              You want crack at a very good price?

              I own a Mapex Pro Series 13x3.5 brass piccolo and it is a killer! Believe me, this one's hard to beat...

                  I don't know if they still have them on sale, but I got a Pacific 3x13 steel picollo last month from Guitar Center. With a little tuning, it sounded good enough to use as the main snare on a few of my band's CD tracks I just recorded. On top of that, it was $59....yes, $59.

                  However if it's not on sale anymore, it's comparable in price to the Pearl steel picollo, so I'd say go with the Pearl in that case.

                    This may sound a little bit far fetched but as for me
                    I bought a no-named steel pic from a friend for 30 bucks.
                    Changed the reso and batter and to my surprise, sounds
                    very good. Nice pop, dry, and a little bit of ring to my
                    liking. However, the brass pic from pearl is also very
                    nice. Don't own one but have played one. In the current
                    Musicians friend magazine (I think its current, if it isn't, its
                    the one before Christmas) they have a pic in there for
                    60 bucks (if you budget is really tight).
