In stock


The recorder from the series MASTER with the model name: 469DBK built by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that always makes music fun, both in class and on stage.
The instrument owes this characteristic mainly to the masterful combination of the pioneering construction concept and the advantages of the birch plywood used. This material convinces with the instrument pleasantly by its extraordinary advantages. The peculiarities can best be described with the following words, 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 a little differently by each person in the details: Suitable for ensembles.

The scale

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

What music styles can the flute be used for?

Birch plywood is predestined for instruments that are used in ensembles, in choral playing and as solo instruments.

Who is the instrument intended for?

The above facts show that recorders made of birch plywood are particularly suitable for beginners. Another generally accepted law is that a more sophisticated instrument usually makes interaction easier than a seemingly inexpensive bargain.

The wind tunnel of the recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the head of the recorder in which the breathing air is formed into an air leaf. This air leaf is the germ cell of the sound production of a flute. In interaction with the labium, the oscillation that causes the flute tone is generated from the air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus extremely relevant for the response and the sound of the flute.

The instrument 469DBK by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the air blade more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are of course extremely complex in their geometric form and many parameters play together.
