Our Description

The Lillian Burkart 'Legacy' is the newest addition to Burkart's range of piccolos. Handmade in the USA, this stunning piccolo features Burkart's newly introduced and updated scale which results in their most accurate intonation to date. As with their other models, the 'Legacy' piccolo has three headjoint choices available.

Headjoint Options

Burkart (standard)

The rectangular shape of this embouchure is slightly overcut at the sides of the embouchour hole for an open, "flute-like" sound that blends well in ensembles. Our most flexible headjoint style, you can push it to the extremes of fortissimo high notes without it being shrill, and it can produce a colourful, sustained diminuendo.

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.

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.
