Crafted from the finest materials, Burkart is known for uncompromising quality and workmanship.
The exterior of the body and headjoint on the 9kAg is 9K gold and the interior is sterling silver. The tubing is crafted in 0.016″ wall thickness of which the 9K gold layer comprises 20%. This flute marries the best timbral qualities of gold and silver. Rich in esthetic appeal, the 9K Gold on Silver is extremely rewarding to play.
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.
