All Burkart piccolos are made of hand-selected, African grenadilla wood. An extensive aging process provides unmatched stability and longevity to every piccolo. Burkart’s unique tone hole design produces a dark, resonant sound with unparalleled ease.
Keywork, ribs, and posts are made of solid sterling silver, allowing for an exacting and precise mechanism fit. Custom handmade piccolos are padded with Straubinger piccolo pads to complement the Burkart piccolo scale, adding resonance and response in all registers. Cork pads are seated in the trills, thumb keys, and G# key to wick moisture and support reliable performance in all climates.
