Quick Overview
Bottom piece for soprano class flute, baroque fingering, with double hole for c/cis and d/dis, 440Hz



The instrument from the series classroom flute with the model number: 117-072U manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that always gives fun in the classroom, as on stage.
This special feature is due to the masterful composition of the well-considered construction concept in interaction with the expressive possibilities of the pear wood material used.

The material is conspicuously inspiring in this instrument due to its exceptional sound characteristics. The characteristics can be characterized as follows: Soft, warm.

The scale length

. The inner bore of the instrument is slightly cylindroconical and wide. This type of bore gives the instrument its typical sound.
In principle recorders with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than instruments with a narrower bore.

What kind of music can the instrument be used for?

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

Who is this instrument aimed at?

Thus, it follows that instruments made of pearwood are particularly suitable for semi-professional, professional players. A second universal law is that a more sophisticated instrument naturally makes playing together easier than a seemingly inexpensive bargain.

The wind tunnel of a recorder


The windway is the area in the instrument headjoint where the musician's blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This sheet of air is the basis of the instrument's sound. In interaction with the labium the air leaf gives rise to the vibration which generates the flute tone. The shape of the wind channel is thus one of the formative principles The recorder 117-072U from Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical.
Conically shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are naturally very complex in their design and many parameters play together.



The instrument Paetzold by Kunath Klassenflöte 117-072U is offered in the version: Baroque fingering.


. It is not always possible to drill tone holes in places in the body of the instrument that are easy and comfortable to reach with the hands. Especially on larger instruments, due to acoustic necessities, tone holes sit in places that are ergonomically out of reach. On such instruments, keys are fitted to the instrument makers to make grasping decidedly {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.
The 117-072U instrument has the following flaps: None. This allows it to be played comfortably by players with smaller hands. This type of keys is unique and legally protected. Especially in Taiwan and Korea, these models are often used in youth ensembles by well-known teachers for adolescent players.
But also older players with reduced grip span of the hands do not want to miss the advantages of the Ohne once they have used them.

Body construction


The construction method of a musical instrument fundamentally shapes the way in which the flute enables sensible handling in terms of easy assembly on the one hand, and compact transport on the other, during daily use.
This is a point that should not be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Leaders of large ensembles know how useful good and compact recorder transport packaging is. Provided that the instruments can be dismantled easily.

Packaging and accessories

. The model comes standard with bag and the following accessories: Grease cup, wiper rod, fingering chart.

Hygiene tips

. If the recorder is lent out again and again, it is recommended to disinfect the windway at regular intervals to prevent the transmission of diseases. Flautisept has proved its worth in these cases. Flautisept is available in our assortment.
