Bassetblockflöte „HP-Original“, Master, Airbrush Palisanderholzoptik, Paetzold by Kunath

In stock


The instrument from the series MASTER with the article number: 449-AP from Paetzold by Kunath is a companion who always enjoys making music.
This characteristic is due to the special combination of the above-average construction concept and the fine tuning with the timbres of the birch plywood used.

This material convinces with the instrument remarkably pleasantly by its special advantages. The characteristics can be characterised as follows: Soft, warm.

The scale

The inner bore of the recorder is cylindrical and wider. This type of bore gives the recorder its typical sound.
In principle, instruments with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than models with a narrower bore.

For which music can the flute be used?

Birch plywood is ideal for recorders that are used in folk music and as an introduction to recorder playing.

Who is this instrument intended for?

The result is that instruments made of birch plywood are particularly suitable for ambitious amateurs and advanced players. An additional important regularity is that a more qualitative instrument naturally makes the interaction more beautiful than a supposedly cheap one.

The wind tunnel of the recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the instrument headpiece where the blow air is formed into an air blade. This air leaf is the basis of the sound of a flute. In interaction with the labium, the oscillation that causes the flute tone is generated from this air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus one of the defining principles for the sound and the response of the recorder.

The instrument 449-AP by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conical wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are naturally complex in their geometric form and many parameters are influenced by each other.

Wise of grip

The instrument Paetzold by Kunath MASTER 449-AP is manufactured in the following version: Baroque fingering.


It is not always possible to drill the tone holes in places that can be easily reached with the fingers. Especially with larger instruments, some tone holes are located in positions that are not ergonomically accessible for reasons relevant to response. With such instruments, mechanics are added to the instrument makers that make gripping considerably {easier| or even possible in the first place.
The instrument 449-AP has the following keys: Paetzold full folding. This allows players with smaller hands to grab the recorder strikingly. This flap mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in the Asian region these instruments are often used in schools by leading teachers for young players.
But even older players with small hands don't want to miss the advantages of Paetzold full folding once they have used it.


The construction of a woodwind instrument fundamentally shapes the way in which the recorder can be used in daily life, on the one hand, to ensure uncomplicated handling in terms of easy reachability and, on the other hand, convenient transport.
This is a point not to be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Leaders of recorder ensembles will agree with us.

Packaging and accessories

The model is offered as standard with optional bag / case and matching accessories: Fat jar, fingering chart, care instructions

Hygiene tips

If the flute is used together, it is recommended to clean the wind tunnel sterilely at regular intervals to ensure hygienic safety. Flautisept has proven itself in these cases. Flautisept is available in our assortment.

Recommendations on finding a new instrument

How do you easily find a next instrument?
Inform yourself in detail!
But don't let "generally valid" rules, such as "the xy brand doesn't work at all in ensembles / for professionals" prevent you from playing your own recorder. Your taste is as unique as you are. Therefore, only you can decide for yourself which wind tunnel shape will make you happy.
Our recommendation is therefore: play unknown models that you have never tried before. You can only win.
