Resona Flutes

Resona flutes will inspire you, enhance your performance and lead to your success. This instrument shares several of our Elite flute features, most notably the Burkart scale. The Resona flute gives you the sound and presence of a professional at an affordable price.

New for 2017 – introducing the Resona 150! This intermediate-level instrument has all the quality and features known and loved with our world-renouned Burkart R300 flute, but we have replaced the solid silver body with a silver-plated one. The R150 is the perfect mid-level upgrade for any advancing flute student!

  • Keep the instrument stored in the case and case cover when not in use.
  • When assembling or removing the headjoint or foot joint from the body, hold the upper part of the body to avoid bending keys, especially the long G# arm.
  • Swab the instrument regularly, but carefully. Always swab after playing.
  • To swab the body, feed a long, thin strip of absorbent cloth through the slot of the swab about 2 inches. Insert the swab in the top (where the headjoint goes) of the body and push all the way out the bottom. Repeat for footjoint, starting where the centerjoint goes.
  • Do not leave the swab stick inside of the flute, especially when storing. Keep the pads dry!
  • The headjoint can be swabbed separately by pushing a little of the cloth in ahead of the stick to remove water near the cork assembly.
  • When wiping down the instrument, take care not to rub near the pads.
  • Your black microfiber polishing cloth may be used if your pads become sticky after hours of play. Just insert the corner of the cloth between the pad and the tone hole and press lightly on the key. Do not pull on the cloth while the key is pressed as to not damage the pad.
