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.
The construction method of a musical instrument strongly influences the way in which the flute is used in daily use, on the one hand, for ease of assembly and, on the other hand, for convenient transport.
A point that becomes particularly important when larger or more instruments are to be carried.
Recorder orchestra leaders will agree with us.
