OVERVIEW

Aged African grenadilla wood piccolo.

Burkart Piccolo Scale
The piccolo scale was revised in 2007 after six months of acoustical experimentation and prototype modeling by Lillian Burkart. This piccolo scale continues to deliver the full, flute-like sound for which it is heralded, but players will enjoy how easily they can produce the high register and will appreciate the improvements to resonance and articulation in the low register. This, the Deluxe model, additionally features an upgrade to French-style pointed arms attaching the cups of all closed-hole keys. Please note, unlike The Deluxe model features an upgrade to French-style pointed arms attaching the cups of all closed-hole keys. Please note also that this particular model is custom ordered per instrument and is not subject to return.

Grendilla Wood Blocks
Historically, the choice wood for woodwinds has been, and remains, African grenadilla. Grenadilla wood alone exhibits the needed qualities of acoustical warmth, hardness, density, and, with proper management, stability. The world's finest grenadilla is selected for the Burkart piccolo. Their aging process is unmatched and includes selection, curing, turning, drilling, and most importantly, time.

Split-E Mechanism
Every Burkart Deluxe piccolo includes the sleek Split-E mechanism to provide effortless production of the high E. When the right-hand 2nd finger E key is closed, a small bridge reaches over to also close the lower G key. This reduction in the venting of the G keys makes the high E easy to produces even at pianissimo. This feature engages automatically. The pitch and tone color are identical to every other note in this range. The Split-E is a tremendous advantage for this frequently played note on the piccolo

Piccolo Pads
Burkart Elite piccolos are padded with Straubinger piccolo pads to complement the Burkart piccolo scale. These pads add resonance and response to the extreme low and high registers of the piccolo. Cork pads are seated in the trill cups. Burkart’s materials and padding processes support reliable performance in all climates.

Mechanism
All keywork, ribs and posts are made of solid sterling silver (14K gold available by special order). The rods inside of the mechanism, pivot screws, and rib screws are made of stainless steel, minimizing flex and assuring many lifetimes of corrosion-free wear and low maintenance. The close tolerances and tapered bearing system of this instrument, as well as the exacting fit of the sterling silver keys, ensure stability and longevity.

Ergonomic Key Work
A slightly offset G finger button, raised and offset right hand finger buttons and redesigned G# key reduce strain in both hands that can accompany prolonged piccolo playing. The heights of levers and the placement of touch pieces, coupled with the delicate balance of the spring tension, provide comfort and technical facility for players with either large or small hands.


Aged grenadilla remains the professionals choice. Here is some of the finest.
