“I am a college freshman and have been playing my Resona flute since the seventh grade! The mature sound, flexibility, and intonation are quite impressive. I loved my flute so much that I bought a Resona piccolo junior year! Both instruments are extremely reliable and have the ability to create a wide range of tone colors and dynamics. I highly recommend Resona by Burkart flutes and piccolos to all!”
“I love my Resona flute and piccolo because they are so dependable. I was driven to get a new piccolo and flute when both of them were either unplayable or continually in the shop. I have never had to take my Resona flute or piccolo into the shop, other than routine maintenance, and have always been able to depend on them to play to the level I need them to.”
“I was lucky enough to purchase a Resona piccolo with a Lillian Burkart head joint about 6 months ago and I can’t imagine playing without it. My piccolo allows me to play with an excellent tone and, unlike many piccolos, stay in tune. Overall, my Burkart piccolo has allowed me to improve and move up the rank in my high school concert band.”
“Originally from Southern New Hampshire, I am a newly Colorado-based flutist and teacher. I got my Resona piccolo a couple of years ago and have since used it in all mediums available including substituting for various orchestras and ensembles, performing in a musical pit in the Berkshires this past summer, and in my career as a teacher, solo musician, and chamber musician. I am happy to have an instrument as reliable as my Resona piccolo.”
