Explore Bright and Rich Sound with the Burkart Resona Piccolo - Standard Headjoint
For more than 30 years, Burkart has been a trusted name in flutes and piccolos. As their reputation grew, teachers asked them for a lower-priced instrument that would still meet Burkart's very high quality standards. Lillian Burkart and Jim Phelan started a quest in 2003 to provide a silver-plated instrument using their renowned piccolo scale. They wanted to give something back to the musicians who helped their company become a success.
After more than one and one-half years of research and development, the first 10 piccolos were ready. Lillian and Jim called this the “Global” piccolo, named after the idea of providing a great piccolo that was affordable anywhere in the world. The Global piccolo was launched at the 2004 NFA convention in Nashville, Tennessee, with a total of 20 ready for the flute community. Teachers lined up at the booth to buy them for their studios, and Burkart quickly sold out!
Of course, this is the Resona piccolo now – They changed the name and the engraving in 2010 – it’s still the same great piccolo! The Resona piccolo set a new standard for what is acceptable for the advancing piccolo player and it continues to be the most exceptional piccolo available below US $2800.
12 years later, Lillian Burkart and Jim Phelan are proud to offer these great instruments at an exceptional value to rising students, amateurs, educators and professionals . Their goal of giving something back to the flute community by increasing the standards and expectations for flutes and piccolos at this level has been achieved. Many different members of the team at Burkart are involved in getting a Resona flute or piccolo made for you.
The Resona Piccolo is made of aged African grenadilla wood. The tone hole shaping and venting are designed for ease of play. This instrument delivers the reliability and reputation of the Resona family of instruments.
The Standard headjoint is based on the classic cut found in 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 a stable, clear tone.
