Description

Description

All Burkart piccolos are conical bore, professional instruments with sterling silver keys and precision pad installation and regulation.

As a piccolo player, Lillian Burkart has spent decades researching and refining the instrument. The widely acclaimed Burkart piccolo sets industry standards, and is played in many of the world’s top ensembles.

Headjoint Options:

Burkart: The rectangular shape of this embouchure is slightly overcut at the sides of the embouchure hole for an open, “flute-like” sound that blends well in ensembles. A most flexible headjoint style, it can be pushed to the extremes of fortissimo high notes without being shrill, and can produce a colorful, sustained diminuendo.

Clarion: This relatively small embouchure hole, with modest rounding of the edges, is reminiscent of early French and German piccolos. The tone it produces is very focused and sweet. For players using a small aperture when playing, it will have the most stable, clear tone of the various headjoint styles.

Modified Wave: The headjoint profile is carved with a slightly higher front wall (the blowing edge) and lower back wall against which the chin rests. It produces a very rich, clean, projecting tone, with easy control of dynamics. The low register is very focused, enabling good projection and articulation.
