The instrument from the SOLO series with the model number: 26-AS from Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that always brings joy of playing when making music.
This characteristic is due to the clever marriage of the ingenious design in combination with the tonal colors of the RESONA material used.

The material is pleasantly convincing in this instrument due to its qualities typical of the material. The special features can be described as follows, whereby it is in the nature of things that sounds can always only be inadequately described in words. That is why the sound of recorders is perceived and described slightly differently by each individual: Soft, warm.

The bore

. The inner bore of the instrument 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 suitable for ensembles than models with a narrower bore.

For what styles of music can the instrument be used?

RESONA is excellent for recorders used in jazz, folk, dance songs and popular music.

Who is this instrument aimed at?

It follows from this that recorders made of RESONA are particularly suitable for semi-professional, professional players. An additional noteworthy basic rule is that a better instrument naturally makes music-making more beautiful than a supposedly cheap one.

The wind tunnel of the recorder


The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the musician's blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of a flute's sound. It is at the labium that the vibration which fundamentally generates the flute's tone is created from the air leaf. The shape of the windway is therefore extraordinarily influential The instrument 26-AS from Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical in shape.
Conical windways accelerate the air more than cylindrically shaped windways.
Wind tunnels are extremely complex in their design and many parameters are influenced by each other.



The Paetzold by Kunath SOLO 26-AS flute is made in the following version: Baroque fingering.


. It is not always possible to place tone holes in the that are easy and comfortable to reach with the hands. Particularly on larger instruments, some tone holes sit in places that are not within reach for address-related reasons. On such instruments, the instrument makers add keys that {simplify|make it easier to grasp, or even possible in the first place.
The 26-AS instrument has the following keys: Paetzold Full Folding. This allows it to be played strikingly even by players with smaller hands. The shape of the keys is unique and legally protected. Especially in the Asian region these instruments are often used at schools by internationally renowned teachers for young players.
But also older players with small hands appreciate the advantages of the Paetzold full keys.



The number of individual parts of a flute strongly influences the way in which the woodwind instrument can ensure ease of use in terms of easy assembly on the one hand, and compact transport on the other.
A point that becomes especially important when transporting larger or more instruments. Ask veteran ensemble managers.
