The wind tunnel of a recorder


The windway is the area in the recorder head where the musician's blowing air is formed into an air leaf. This air leaf is the central starting point of a recorder's sound. In interaction with the labium, the air leaf gives rise to the vibration which generates the flute tone. The shape of the windway is therefore extremely important The model 28DB-AS from Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical.
Conical windways accelerate the air more than cylindrical windways.
Wind tunnels are complex in their geometric shape and many parameters influence each other.



The model Paetzold by Kunath SOLO 28DB-AS is delivered in the version: Baroque fingering.


. It is not always possible to drill the tone holes in places in the body that are comfortable to grip with the hands. Particularly on bass recorders, some tone holes are located in positions that are not accessible due to acoustic necessities. On such instruments, keys are fitted by the instrument maker to make gripping significantly {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.

This key mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in Korea and Taiwan these models are often used in recorder orchestras by well-known teachers for adolescent players.
But also older players with reduced grip span of the hands appreciate the advantages of the Paetzold full key mechanism.
