The new Burkart scale
Burkart Piccolos have introduced a new scale on all custom piccolos, resulting in their most accurate intonation ever:
- Low D is no longer flat
- Middle D and middle G is no longer sharp
- Intonation among B, C# and D above the staff is more accurate
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.
Burkart Flutes was founded in 1982 by Lillian Burkart and James Phelan while they were both employees of the Verne Q. Powell company. They have grown, yet continued to be a small company with a focus on stability, quality and performance. The Burkart name is trusted worldwide for these traits. They are proud to combine 21st century technology with 2.5 decades of expertise and superior customer service. It is this synergy that allows them to produce first-rate flutes and piccolos to meet 21st century requirements. Today, flutes and piccolos produced by Burkart are played by students, teachers, amateurs, and professionals in over 35 countries.
