Explore the High Register Effortlessly with the Burkart Professional Piccolo with Split E Mechanism - Clarion Headjoint

All Burkart Professional piccolos are made of aged African grenadilla wood, finished with a sterling silver mechanism. The tone hole shaping and venting is designed for ease of play.

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. Players will enjoy how easily they can produce the high register and will appreciate the improvements to resonance and articulation in the low register.

Pads

Custom-made for Burkart & Phelan piccolos in Italy Precision pad installation and regulation assures years of reliability in performance and acoustic excellence


Mechanism

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.

Ergonomic Key Work

A slightly offset G finger button and redesigned G# key reduce the 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.

Split-E Mechanism

The Split-E mechanism is a recommended upgrade for the Professional Piccolo. The Split-E mechanism provides 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.

Clarion Headjoint

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.
