General informationThe


of the

Engelberger five-tone flute series with the article number: 51011 by Paetzold by Kunath is a recorder that can be used in class as well as on stage to create new fun
. This characteristic is mainly due to the special composition of the ingenious construction concept in the fine tuning with the timbre of the pearwood material used

. The properties can be characterized as follows, whereby it is in the nature of things that sounds can only be described very inadequately with words. Therefore, the material-typical sound of recorders is perceived and described in slightly different details by each person:


bore of the inner bore of the recorder is cylindrical and wider. In
principle, instruments with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and therefore more ensembleable than models with a narrower bore.For

music can the instrument best be used?

Pearwood is particularly suitable for recorders that are used in ensembles, in choral playing and as a solo

Who is this instrument aimed

at? It follows from this that
instruments made of pearwood are particularly suitable for beginners. The

wind tunnel of the recorderThe

wind tunnel is the area in the headpiece of the recorder in which the air blown by the musician is formed into an air blade


This air leaf is the nucleus of the sound production of a flute. In interaction with the labium, the oscillation generating the flute sound is created from the air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus one of the defining principles for the response and the sound of the flute.

The instrument
by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and very narrowly cylindrical. Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrical ones.
The design of wind tunnels is extremely complex due to the system and many parameters are influenced by each other.
