Crafted from the finest materials, Burkart is known for uncompromising quality and workmanship.
The 998 silver flute has the tonal depth and color of a platinum flute, but speaks with the shimmer and projection of a silver flute. The resonance of this flute is the result of its extraordinary 99.8% pure silver content. The brilliance of silver, warmth and depth of gold, and projection of platinum are all found in one material. An innovative process produces a tube that is hard and reflective with vibrancy, color and a beautiful distinction in the sound of the new 998 silver Burkart flute.
Lillian Burkart’s hand-cut headjoints provide the hallmark projection and response of the Burkart flute. One of two styles can be chosen for the instrument.
S4 – 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 – Lillian Burkart’s most innovative cut. The air stream is quickly excited and the player achieves exceptional response and projection. All three octaves have a ringing resonance and a dark core. An unprecedented dynamic range and flexibility make this headjoint the choice for all music styles.
