The instrument from the series MASTER with the article number: 459-ABW from Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that gives lasting fun in daily use.
This special feature is largely due to the deliberate combination of the groundbreaking model design with the sound characteristics of the birch plywood material used. The material of this instrument impresses with its extraordinary qualities. The special features can best be described with the following words: Overtone-rich.

The scale

The inner bore of the recorder is cylindrical and wider. This type of bore gives the recorder its typical sound.
In principle, instruments with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than models with a narrower bore.

For which music can the instrument be used?

Birch plywood is ideal for instruments that are used in ensembles, choral ensembles and soloists.

Who is this instrument intended for?

From this it follows that birch plywood instruments are particularly suitable for beginners. Another noteworthy law is that a higher quality instrument naturally makes interaction easier than a bad one.

The Wind Tunnel of a Recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the instrument headpiece where the blow air is formed into an air blade. This air leaf is the central starting point of the sound production of a flute. At the labium, the oscillation generating the flute tone is generated from the air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus highly relevant for the variation possibilities of the available sound spectra of the flute.

The instrument 459-ABW by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conical wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more strongly than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are extremely complex in their design and many parameters interact.

Wise of grip

The model Paetzold by Kunath MASTER 459-ABW is delivered in the following version: Baroque fingering.


It is not always possible to drill the tone holes into the parts of the instrument that are comfortable to grasp with one's hands. Especially with bass recorders, tone holes sit in positions that are not tangible due to mood-relevant necessities. With such instruments, flap mechanisms are mounted that make gripping considerably easier or even possible in the first place.
The instrument 459-ABW has the following keys: Paetzold full folding. This allows the recorder to be played strikingly even by players with smaller hands. This form of flap mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in Asia these models are often used in recorder orchestras by well-known teachers for young players.
But also older players with reduced grip span of the hands enjoy the advantages of the Paetzold full folding.

Construction of the body

The number of individual parts of a flute is an extraordinary characteristic of the way in which the woodwind instrument can be handled during daily use, on the one hand to ensure uncomplicated handling in terms of easy reachability and on the other hand to ensure safe transport.
This is a point not to be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Leaders of large ensembles know how useful good and compact recorder cases are. Provided that the instruments can be dismantled into small parts.

Packaging and accessories

The model comes standard with optional bag / case and the following accessories: Fat jar, fingering chart, care instructions

Hygiene tips

If the flute is played by several people, it makes sense to clean the blowing area sterilely at regular intervals in order to maintain cleanliness. In these cases Flautisept has proven itself for convenient but safe cleaning. Flautisept is available in our assortment.
