Our Description

A stunning instrument to play. The Lillian Burkart "Professional" model has a full round sound, easy response across the piccolo's range and excellent tuning - in fact, everything you could want in a piccolo. If you have been thinking about upgrading your piccolo, we can highly recommend this one.

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

Headjoint Options

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.


About Burkart

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.
