• All Burkart Professional piccolos are made in the USA of aged grenadilla wood, finished with a sterling silver mechanism.
  • The tone hole shaping and venting is designed for ease of play.
  • All keywork, ribs and posts are made of solid sterling silver. 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.
  • A slightly offset G finger button and redesigned G# key reduce left-hand strain 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.
