The wind tunnel of the recorder
The wind tunnel is the area in the head of the instrument where the blowing air is formed into an air leaf. This air leaf is the basis of the sound production of a flute. In combination with the labium, this air vane is the basis for the vibration that generates the tone of the flute. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus one of the defining features for the artistic usability of the instrument.The instrument 117-052U by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel which is straight and conical shaped.
Conical shaped wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrical ones.
