“Quite simply, the very best flutes”, Jim Walker

In this simple statement lies the reason FPS is proud to carry the Burkart flutes in our inventory:  the values of Burkart and FPS are totally aligned.  Lillian Burkart has steadfastly held to the mission of manufacturing the very best flutes while at the same time constantly innovating mechanical and tonal design.  The pinless technology of the Burkart flute is simple, unbelievably smooth, and repair tech friendly.

The Burkart Elite flute is a handmade custom flute with soldered tone holes, Burkart’s micro-Link™ pinless mechanism is featured, with every flute option and customization  available.

The Burkart Professional flute model is handmade with the same custom built keys found on the Elite model. Professional flutes are crafted with Burkart’s micro-Link™ pinless mechanism, and has drawn tone holes. The Professional flute is only available in B Foot and A=442.

If you are looking for a step-up flute of the finest American manufacturing standards, then Resona by Burkart is the best choice to make.  The Resona 200 features sterling silver tubing, silver plated keywork, .016 wall thickness, and a hand cut headjoint.  The Resona 300 shares the same features as the 200, with .018 wall thickness, and the option of a 14 K riser and/or 9 K lip plate and silver riser.

And remember, all Lillian Burkart piccolos are handmade in the USA.
