Bottom piece for soprano class flute, baroque fingering, with double hole for c/cis and d/dis, 440Hz


class flute with the model number: 117-072U made by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that is always fun to play in class as well as on stage. This special feature is due to the masterful combination of the well-considered building concept in combination with the expressive possibilities of the pear tree material used. The material of this instrument is strikingly impressive due to its extraordinary sound characteristics. The characteristics can be characterized as follows: Soft, warm.

The scale >/h3> The internal bore of the instrument is slightly cylindroconical and wide. This type of bore gives the instrument its typical sound.
In principle, recorders with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensemble-capable than instruments with a narrower bore.

Pearwood is particularly suitable for recorders used in jazz, folk, dance songs and popular music.

Who is this instrument aimed at?

Thus it follows that instruments made of pear wood are particularly suitable for semi-professional, professional players. A second general rule is that a more sophisticated instrument makes playing easier than a seemingly cheap bargain.

The wind tunnel of a recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the instrument headjoint where the musician's blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the sound of the instrument. In interaction with the labium, the air reed is the source of the vibration that generates the tone of the flute. The shape of the wind tunnel is therefore one of the defining principles for the musical expressiveness of the recorder.

The recorder 117-072U by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel which is straight and conical.
Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are of course very complex in their construction and many parameters play together.


The instrument Paetzold by Kunath class flute 117-072U is offered in the version: Baroque fingering.


It is not always possible to drill tone holes at those places in the instrument body which can be reached easily and comfortably with the hands.

On such instruments, the instrument makers install keys that make it easier to grasp the instruments, or even make it possible in the first place.

Especially in Taiwan and Korea these models are often used in youth ensembles by well-known teachers for growing players.
But also older players with reduced hand grip span do not want to miss the advantages of the Ohne once they have used it.
