Pentatonic Soprano Class Flute, 432Hz


class flute series with the article number: 117-152 built by Paetzold by Kunath is an instrument that is always fun to play in class and on stage. This special feature of the instrument is mainly due to the clever combination of the groundbreaking design in combination with the timbres of the pearwood material used.

The wind tunnel of a recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the head of the recorder where the blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the sound of the instrument. In combination with the labium, the airleaf is used to create the vibration that fundamentally generates the tone of the recorder. The shape of the wind tunnel is therefore one of the defining principles for the response and the sound of the recorder.

The recorder 117-152 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 naturally very complex in their design and many parameters influence each other.

This makes it easy to play even for players with smaller hands. This key system is unique and legally protected.
