Hi there! Im buying my first piccolo, and im looking for the best choices in Piccolos. I hope some of you would give me some information reguarding these horns.

I have two amazing horns to pick from. At amazing prices to get them at. Its pretty much a matter of which one is the better.

Kanstul 920 vs Stomvi Elite

Let me know please!

Kanstul 920.

You'll not only never regret that decision but you'll also never want to sell the 920. Even if you upgrade to a Schilke, you'll want to keep the 920.

Why do you seldom see 920's for sale? Because they're that good of a horn.

I can't speak about the piccolo, but I can say that I play a Stomvi S3 big bell Bb trumpet, and it's off-the-map great.

Or because not many people buy them?

(Said having liked every Kanstul I've played, however briefly)

I like them both and own a Kanstul 920.

Based on your signature, why not consider a Yamaha? The ones I've played were incredible, though I'm less impressed with the short-bell model. The 3+1 (used to be the 9820C) is the easiest playing picc I've ever tried.
