Whether you are looking for a powerful, rich headjoint with projection in the orchestral environment, or a sweet and intimate sound for chamber music, Burkart has made a cut just for you!
The C4 cut produces a warm, round, full bodied sound. The stability and ease of play allow for nuance within a wide range of colors and dynamics.
The M2 cut is Lilian Burkart's most innovative cut. 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.
