class flute with the model name: 117-172 made by Paetzold by Kunath is a recorder that is always fun to play in daily use.

The wind tunnel of the recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the head of the instrument in which the breathing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the sound production of a flute. In interaction with the labium, the airleaf is used to create the vibration that fundamentally generates the tone of the flute. The shape of the wind tunnel is therefore one of the defining features for the wide range of artistic applications of the recorder.
