Quick Overview
Engelberger fifth tone flute, 440Hz, with recessed grip

General informationThe

recorder from the Engelberger five-tone flute series with the model designation: 50011 built by Paetzold by Kunath is an instrument that is always fun to play, both in class and on stage

. This is due to

the carefully considered marriage of the ingenious model design in symbiosis with the sound characteristics of the pearwood material used

. The characteristics can be characterized in such a way, whereby it lies in the nature of the thing that sounds can be described always only insufficiently with words. Therefore the typical sound of recorders is perceived and described slightly differently by each person in the details:


geometry of the inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and wider. In
principle, recorders with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than instruments with a narrower bore.

which musical styles can the flute be used?

Pearwood is predestined for instruments used in jazz, folk, dance songs and popular music


Another general rule is that in most cases a more demanding instrument makes learning easier than a simple one.

the wind tunnel of a recorderThe

wind tunnel is the area in the head of the instrument where the blowing air of the musician is formed into an air blade.

This air leaf is the basis of the sound of the instrument and in interaction with the labium, the air leaf generates the fundamental oscillation that generates the sound of the flute. The shape of the wind tunnel is therefore very relevant for the variation possibilities of the available sound spectra of the recorder.

The model
by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel which is straight and very narrow cylindrical. Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the air blade more than cylindrical ones.
