The instrument from the Flautina & Flautino series with the model designation: 3170 manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that always provides fun in daily use.
The instrument owes this quality mainly to the clever combination of the considered instrument model in combination with the expressive possibilities of the pear tree material used.

The material is pleasantly fascinating in this instrument due to its material-typical qualities. The special features can be described as follows, whereby it is in the nature of things that sounds can always only be described very inadequately with words. Therefore, the material-typical sound of recorders is perceived and described slightly differently by each person in the details: Noble,.

The bore

. The inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and narrow. This type of bore gives the recorder its typical sound.

Birnbaum is predestined for recorders used in jazz, folk, dance songs and popular music.

Who is the instrument aimed at?

The wind tunnel of a recorder


The windway is the area in the recorder head where the musician's blowing air is formed into a sheet of air. This sheet of air is the basis of the instrument's sound. At the labium the fundamental vibration which generates the flute tone is created from this sheet of air. The shape of the wind channel is thus one of the formative basic features The instrument 3170 by Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical in shape.
Conically shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Wind tunnels are immensely complex in their geometric form and many parameters play together.

The 3170 instrument has the following keys: None. This allows the recorder to be played ergonomically by players with smaller hands. This key mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in the Asian region, these models are often used in schools by leading teachers for young 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 played it.



The structural design in terms of the multi-part nature of a musical instrument strongly influences the way in which the flute in use allows for ease of handling in terms of ease of grip on the one hand, and compact transport on the other.
This is a point that should not be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes multiple) instruments.
