International Soloist and Professor of Flute at the Juilliard School

“My platinum headjoint, made by Lillian, has served me in every imaginable setting.

The stability, the layered richness, the cornucopia of colors, the endless power and scintillating finesse… none other has ever come close to satisfying me on the concert stage.”

M2 Style


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.

S4 Style

Focused & Sweet

This embouchure, derived from a traditional style, produces a pure, warm sound. It is noted for its clarity of sound and 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.

Tradition + Innovation


A result of mutual admiration, the collaboration between Lillian Burkart and Tobias Mancke brings you the finest pairing of tradition and innovation. For years, the Burkart-Mancke combination has been enjoyed by players around the world.
