The instrument from the model series MASTER with the model number: 462 by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that always creates fun while playing.
This property is due to the clever combination of the outstanding design and the qualities of the cherry wood used.

The material fascinates with this instrument pleasantly by its unique qualities. The special characteristics can best be described with the following words: Wooden and warm.

The scale

The inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and wider. This type of drilling process gives the model its typical sound.
In principle, instruments with further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than recorders with narrower bore.

For which music can the flute best be used?

Cherry wood is particularly suitable for recorders that are used in ensembles, in choral playing and as solo instruments.

Who is this recorder for?

The above facts show that recorders made of cherry wood are particularly suitable for beginners. A noteworthy regularity is that a more qualitative instrument naturally makes the interaction more enriching than a more favourable one.

The wind tunnel of the recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the headpiece of the recorder in which the breathing air of the musician is formed into a thin blade of air. This air leaf is the central starting point of the sound of a recorder. At the labium, the oscillation generating the flute tone is generated from this air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus very influential for the response and the sound of the instrument.

The instrument 462 by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the air blade more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are complex in their design and many parameters influence each other.

Wise of grip

The instrument Paetzold by Kunath MASTER 462 is offered in the following version: Baroque fingering.


It is not always possible to drill the tone holes in places that are easy to reach with the fingers. Especially with larger instruments, for acoustic reasons, tone holes are located in places that are impossible to reach. With these instruments, the instrument maker attaches mechanics that make gripping much easier or even possible in the first place. The instrument 462 has the following keys: Paetzold full folding. This allows players with smaller hands to grasp the ball more than average. This form of flap mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in the Asian region these models are often used in schools by well-known teachers for young players.
But also older players with small hands enjoy the advantages of Paetzold full folding.

Multi-part ratio

The number of parts of a musical instrument determines the way in which the flute can be used, on the one hand, in a way that makes it easy to grasp and, on the other hand, in a way that makes it compact to transport.
A point that becomes particularly important when larger or more instruments need to be carried. Leaders of recorder orchestras will agree with us.

Packaging and accessories

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

Hygiene tips

If the recorder is rented more often, we recommend that you disinfect the wind tunnel again and again to ensure hygienic safety. The disinfectant Flautisept has proven its worth. You will find Flautisept in our assortment.
