Get Professional Quality and Elegance with the Burkart Professional 9k-AG Flute - Gold on Silver

The Burkart Professional model is handmade with the same custom built keys found on the Elite model. As of February, 2013, all Professional flutes are crafted with Burkart’s micro-Link™ pinless mechanism. This flute has drawn tone holes. The drawn tone hole is extruded from the material of the body tube. The Professional flute is only available in B Foot and A=442.

The Burkart Professional model is handmade with the same custom built keys found on the Elite model.

9k-AG Gold On Silver

Commonly referred to as Burkart's 9k-AG material, the exterior of the body and headjoint are 9K gold and the interior is sterling silver. This layered gold tubing is crafted in 0.016″ wall thickness, marrying the best tonal qualities of gold and silver. Rich in aesthetic appeal, the 9K Gold & Silver flute is extremely rewarding to play.

Burkart Flute Scale

James Phelan developed the scale that is the cornerstone of all Burkart flutes. Mathematically derived, it is known for evenness and stability of pitch.

Silent Action

Sleek, felt bumpers regulate and quiet the key action.

Contemporary Pads

The response and stability of these pads enhance the beauty of the sound in all environments.

Burkart’s™ Micro-Link fully-pinless Mechanism

An improvement upon all previous pinless mechanisms, this innovative architecture provides stability with two solid 14K white gold rods, reduces weight, and allows the transfer of motion to be very close to the main axle of the keys. By design, the keys are easy to remove for maintenance and adjustments. The simple elegance of Burkart's micro-Link mechanism results in equally light spring tension throughout, stable and balanced response for both the right and left hands, and lightning-fast action.

Precision Keys and Arms

To play its best a flute’s pads must cover perfectly. With this in mind, each Burkart key cup is cut from solid gold or silver, leaving a flat internal surface for pads. The cup perfectly centers the flute pad, delivering added stability to the padding system.

Stainless Steel Rods

All Burkart flutes are built using three different types of specially alloyed stainless steel rods. These rods resist flexing, distortion, and corrosion. The system reduces friction and gives the player more hours of maintenance-free play.

Ergonomic Elements

The slide from D# to each of the three lowest notes of the flute is unmatched for comfort and ease in the Burkart key design. Length, shaping, and position of the G# lever minimizes fatigue in the left hand.

The flutist’s thumb and little fingers work hard. The thumb key and lever are angled to lie under an unstrained left-hand position. The sculpted curves of the key make the slide from B to Bb effortless.

M2 Model Headjoint

This unique style 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 an energetic and direct sound. This style provides a distinctive resonating core throughout all three registers of the flute. The M2 model produces a robust tone and an unprecedented dynamic range.
