Resona by Burkart?

Post by asamd74 »

Does anyone have a review on the Resona by Burkart? I saw it on a website but I haven't heard it and the music store where I'm at hasn't even heard of them.

The main reference on the web page mentioned above was to a Spanish language flute site and the relevant article contained an abysmal automated translation, so as I know Spanish, I'll attempt a translation of my own. I'll also append the Spanish original for anyone who wants to see that and is familiar with Spanish or a native speaker.

Just found one here on special offer for just under £2,000 which I think is around $3,000 so quite a lot below the list price mentioned in my last reply. The link also contains a description and photos that can be enlarged: ... JM3563.htm

There seems to be a discrepancy though, between the description here and the Spanish description above as the flute on sale here is referred to as having a silver plated body whereas the other description is clear that the body as well as the headjoint are solid silver, so you'd need to clear up this point if you were thinking of buying one.

Allright, now I'm editing this message as I've found another link that confirms that the flute does in fact have a solid tube not a plated one so probably the Just Flutes description is wrong: ... 196?v=info

The last paragraph says: 'Solid sterling silver body, gold springs, Burkart quality, ergonomic keywork and touch pieces and a USA-made sterling silver headjoint.'

Reading between the lines, I guess what's going on with these flutes is that Burkart outsource the production of the body to China or somewhere to their specifications, but use their own US-made headjoint.

And finally, here's the official Resona website, confirming that the flute is indeed solid silver (wish I'd found this earlier!):

This is the Resona 200. To confuse matters, Just Flutes are also selling a Resona 100 which unlike the 200 has a silver plated body, not a solid body (around £900, i.e. around $1400): ... JM3562.htm

Kind regards, T.
