Just Flutes Description
The new Burkart & Phelan 9k "Gold on Silver" flute is an interesting flute which makes you wow when you pick it up. Until recently, only Powell flutes were available in this material, but Powell's exclusive access to this alloy has now come to an end, opening up the way for other makers to use it. Matching the flexibility of silver with the richness of gold, the Burkart & Phelan Gold on Silver flute is responsive, with a full sound.
The Acton cut headjoint
Lillian Burkart's hand-cut headjoints provide the hallmark projection and response of the Burkart & Phelan flute. They are identical to those made for the Burkart flute. The Acton embouchure is a classic cut, producing a warm, round, sweet sound. It is noted for its fluidity and flexibility in slurring wide intervals. The player will enjoy homogeneity in all three octaves and a wide palate of colors and timbre. The stability and ease of play allow for nuance within a wide range of colors and dynamics.
Burkart Flutes was founded in 1982 by Lillian Burkart and James Phelan while they were both employees of the Verne Q. Powell company. They have grown, yet continued to be a small company with a focus on stability, quality and performance. The Burkart name is trusted worldwide for these traits. They are proud to combine 21st century technology with 2.5 decades of expertise and superior customer service. It is this synergy that allows them to produce first-rate flutes and piccolos to meet 21st century requirements. Today, flutes and piccolos produced by Burkart are played by students, teachers, amateurs, and professionals in over 35 countries.
