Quick Overview
Flautino, 3 pieces



The recorder from the series Flautina & Flautino with the model name: 3170-072 manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is an instrument that can always generate fun when making music.
The instrument owes this peculiarity mainly to the clever combination of the above-average construction concept in interaction with the timbres of the pear wood material used.

The material is conspicuously fascinating in this instrument due to its unique sound characteristics. The special features can be characterized like this: Rich in overtones.

The bore

. The geometry of the recorder's inner bore is cylindrical and narrow. 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 suitable for ensembles than models with a narrower bore.

For which musical styles can the instrument be best used?

Birnbaum is predestined for recorders that are used in ensembles, for choral playing and as soloists.

Who is the instrument aimed at?

Thus it follows that recorders made of pearwood are particularly suitable for beginners. A basic rule to bear in mind is that a higher-quality instrument makes playing together less complicated in most cases than a seemingly inexpensive bargain.

The wind tunnel of the recorder


The windway is the area in the recorder's head where the musician's breath is formed into an air leaf. This air leaf is one of the most important elements in the sound production of a recorder. The vibration which generates the flute tone is created at the labium from this sheet of air. The shape of the windway is therefore extraordinarily influential The instrument 3170-072 from Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical in shape.
Conical windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Wind tunnels are naturally complex in their geometric design and many parameters are influenced by each other.



The flute Paetzold by Kunath Flautina & Flautino 3170-072 is delivered in the version: Baroque fingering.


. It is not always possible to place the tone holes in places in the instrument that are comfortable for the hands to reach. Especially on bass recorders, some tone holes are located in places that are ergonomically out of reach due to acoustic necessities. On such instruments, the instrument makers add mechanics that make grasping significantly {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.
The 3170-072 instrument has the following keys: None. This allows it to be gripped by players with smaller hands than average. This key action is unique and legally protected. Especially in Asia, these models are often used in recorder orchestras by well-known teachers for adolescent players.
But also older players with small hands do not want to miss the advantages of the Ohne once they have become acquainted with it.



The structural design in terms of the multi-part nature of a flute fundamentally shapes the way in which the woodwind instrument can ensure, on the one hand, uncomplicated handling in terms of easy assembly and, on the other, compact transport during daily use.
This is a point that should not be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Ask veteran ensemble managers once.

Notes for the search for a new recorder

. How do you easily find a future instrument?
Ask acquaintances!
But don't let "generally valid" rules like "the brand xy doesn't work at all in ensembles / for professionals" keep you from trying out a new recorder yourself. Your musical sensibility is as unique as you are. Therefore, only you can decide which wind channel shape makes you happy.
Our recommendation is therefore: try on different brands that you may not have tried before. You can only gain experience.
