“The absolute reliability of my Burkart flute and piccolo constantly impresses me. The scale system is extremely accurate, which gives me the confidence to play with poise in any register and at any dynamic level that I desire. The depth of sound offered by my 998 silver flute is outstanding, and I love the tonal possibilities offered by my piccolo.”
