Lillian Burkart is simply one of the most gifted piccolo and flute makers of all time. She began her career at the Powell factory, where she made bodies, keys, piccolos, and also padded instruments. She founded her own company in 1982 with her husband Jim Phelan, whose unsurpassed knowledge of instrument design and execution built a team that can't be beat. Since then, Burkart flutes have been at the cutting edge of flute-making innovation. Burkart flutes are known for their resonance, easy control, and extremes in tonal color and dynamic range. Every Burkart flute, piccolo and headjoint truly embodies the motto "The Sound and Feel of Great Design."
This list represents our current inventory of New Burkart flutes direct from the factory, updated weekly and available for immediate purchase. We also stock a large number of headjoints in a variety of styles and materials.
