The wind tunnel is the area in the recorder head where the blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is one of the most important elements in the sound production of a flute. At the labium, this air leaf is the source of the vibration that generates the tone of the flute. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus extremely influential for the musical creativity of the flute.The model 117-S by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
The constructional design with regard to the multi-piece nature of a recorder strongly influences the way in which it can be used in daily use, on the one hand, to ensure easy handling in terms of easy assembly and, on the other hand, to ensure compact transport.
This is a point not to be underestimated especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Conductors of large ensembles know how useful good and compact recorder packaging is. Provided that the instruments can be dismantled into small pieces.
