Description

Lillian Burkart has an international reputation for headjoints that spans decades. Her devotion to her loyal clientele has converted many Burkart headjoint players into Burkart flute players.  Whether your need is for a powerful, rich headjoint with projection in the orchestral environment, or a sweet and intimate sound for chamber music, the appropriate headjoint is made at Burkart.

5-95 Platinum Enhanced Silver: The 5-95 is made from 5% pure platinum and 95% pure silver. This metal delivers an increased range or spectrum of color as with gold or platinum, but with considerably less weight. Combining focused sound and good projection, the dynamics and intensity are greater than sterling silver.

S4 Cut: This embouchure, derived from a traditional style, produces a pure, warm sound. It is noted for its flexibility in air stream direction and expressiveness. The player will experience evenness in all three octaves, and effortless articulation. The stability and ease of play allow for nuances within a wide pallet of color creating a sound full of brilliant richness and depth.

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.

Different riser and lip plate metal combinations are available on this model, some by SPECIAL ORDER ONLY.  Please contact us for more information.
