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.

By listening to the needs of flutists, Burkart has developed an awareness of changes in players' sensibilities regarding sound production and response. This awareness drives the design of the headjoint. The Burkart design allows for flexibility in embouchure cut, enabling our headjoint maker to meet the varying demands and tastes of all 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.

A wide selection of metals and geometries allows us to offer the player a palate of timbral colors. These include silver, gold and platinum tubes, multiple choices of riser and lip plate material and choice of style (cut).

Headjoint styles:

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, evenness in all three octaves, and effortless articulation. The stability and ease of play allow for nuances within a wide pallet of color for a sound full of brilliant richness and depth.

M2 - 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.
