The instrument from the series MASTER with the model number: 479DBK manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a companion who tirelessly enjoys playing music.
The instrument owes this characteristic mainly to the deliberate composition of the ingenious construction concept in combination with the expressive possibilities of the birch plywood used. The material of this instrument is remarkably pleasant to the touch due to its unique sound characteristics. The characteristics can be characterized in such a way, whereby it lies in the nature of the thing that sounds can be described always only very inadequately with words.

The Wind Tunnel of a Recorder

The wind tunnel is the area in the head of the recorder in which the blowing air is formed into an air blade. This air leaf is one of the most important elements of the sound production of a flute. In interaction with the labium, the air leaf generates the fundamental oscillation that generates the flute tone. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus highly relevant for the sound and response of the instrument.

The instrument 479DBK by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conical wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are extremely complex in their geometric design and many parameters are influenced by each other.
