Introduction

Lillian

We have grown, yet we continue to be a small company with a focus on stability, quality and performance of our instruments. The Burkart name is trusted worldwide for these traits. Here music making, instrument building, and service to players are closely integrated.

The music business is one of the most rewarding professions in the world. It is also one of the most competitive. Every audition attracts dozens of talented players with great training from brilliant teachers. They have practiced countless hours and have world-class instruments. Who wins the audition is often determined by very small differences. Our entire focus is on making flutes and piccolos that give you that advantage. Our job is to make your job easier.

Resonance and easy control.
Extremes in tonal color and dynamic range.
These are the hallmarks of our luxury line of precious-metal instruments.

Our mission at Burkart is to enable the flutist to push the performance envelope by giving full voice and limitless technical possibilities to the instrument. Every Burkart flute, piccolo, and headjoint truly embodies the motto
“The Sound and Feel of Great Design.”

Commitment

Each member of our finishing staff is a capable flutist. Every instrument is tested with pride before it is sent to the musician who commissioned it. When you order a flute or piccolo from Burkart, you enter into a relationship that you will find profoundly rewarding.
