Burkart Legacy Piccolo New
Burkart Piccolo Headjoints
The Wave Headjoint profile is carved with a slightly higher front wall (the blowing edge) and lower back wall against which the chin rests. It produces a very rich, clean, projecting tone, with easy control of dynamics. The low register is very focused, enabling good projection and articulation.
The Clarion Headjoint, with a relatively small embouchure hole, and 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.
The rectangular shape of the Burkart embouchure is slightly overcut at the sides of the embouchure hole for an open, “flute-like” sound that blends well in ensembles. You can push it to the extremes of fortissimo high notes without it being shrill, and it can produce a colorful, sustained diminuendo.
