Quick Overview
Pentatonic lower piece for soprano class flute, 440Hz



The instrument from the classroom flute series with the model designation: 117-052U manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that provides lasting fun in the classroom, as well as on stage.
This feature is largely due to the clever combination of the special model in the fine tuning with the qualities of the material used pear tree.

The material is pleasantly fascinating in this instrument because of its unique qualities. The special qualities can be roughly described in this way, although it is in the nature of things that sounds can only ever be inadequately described in words. For this reason the sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person in slightly varying details: Rich in overtones.

The bore

. The geometry of the recorder's inner bore is slightly cylindroconical and wide. 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 what styles of music can the instrument best be used?

Birnbaum is particularly suitable for recorders used in ensembles, for choral playing and as soloists.

Who is this instrument aimed at?

It follows that instruments made of pearwood are particularly suitable for beginners. A second generally valid basic rule is that a more sophisticated instrument makes music-making less complicated in most cases than a poor one.

The wind tunnel of the recorder


The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the blowing air is formed into a sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of a flute's tone production. In interaction with the labium, this air leaf thus gives rise to the vibration that fundamentally generates the flute's tone. The shape of the windway is thus one of the formative basic features The instrument 117-052U by Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical in shape.
Conical windways accelerate the air more than cylindrical windways.
Wind tunnels are of course very complex in their design and many parameters influence each other.



The flute Paetzold by Kunath Klassenflöte 117-052U is delivered in the version: Pentatonic.


. It is not always possible to place the tone holes in places in the instrument that are easy to reach with the fingers. Particularly on larger recorders, some tone holes sit in positions that are ergonomically out of reach due to address-related necessities. On these instruments, the instrument makers fit key mechanisms that make gripping decidedly {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.
The 117-052U instrument has the following keys: None. This allows it to be easily grasped by players with smaller hands. The shape of the keys is unique and legally protected. Especially in the Asian region, these recorders are often used in schools by internationally renowned teachers for adolescent players.
But also adult players with reduced grip span of the hands do not want to miss the advantages of the Ohne once they have become acquainted with them.

Body construction


The structural design in terms of the multi-piece nature of a recorder fundamentally shapes the way in which it can ensure sensible handling in terms of ease of assembly, on the one hand, and compact transport, on the other, during daily use.
A point that becomes particularly important when larger or more instruments are to be taken along.
Leaders of large playing circles will agree.

Packaging and accessories

. The recorder comes standard with bag and the useful accessories: Grease cup, wiper rod, fingering chart.

Hygiene tips

. If the instrument is lent out again and again, you should consider disinfecting the blowing area regularly to maintain cleanliness. Flautisept has proven to be a safe helper in these cases. Flautisept is available in our assortment.
