9KAg: This metal marries the best timbral qualities of gold and silver. Rich in esthetic appeal, the 9K Gold on Silver is extremely rewarding to play. Comes standard with a 9K gold lip plate and silver riser.
C4 Cut: This embouchure, derived from a classic cut, produces a warm, round, full-bodied sound. It is noted for its fluidity and flexibility in slurring wide intervals. The player will enjoy homogeneity in all three octaves, and even into the fourth register. The stability and ease of play allow for nuance within a wide range of colors and dynamics.
M2 Cut: This unique cut is Lillian Burkart's most innovative. The air stream is quickly excited and the player achieves exceptional response and projection. The embouchure shape focuses the tone, resulting in a clear, clean, and very directed flute sound. All three octaves have a ringing resonance and a dark core. The M2 model provides an unprecedented dynamic range and powerful low register.
