In stock



The recorder from the series SOLO with the item number: 28HPK-AS from the workshop Paetzold by Kunath is a companion that can always generate fun in the classroom, as on stage.
This circumstance owes the instrument mainly to the skillful combination of the considered construction concept in symbiosis with the sound colors of the used material RESONA.

This material impresses the instrument with its special advantages. The properties can be characterized in this way, whereby it is in the nature of things that sounds can always only be described very inadequately with words. For this reason the sound of recorders, which is typical of the material, is perceived and described in varying detail by each individual: Soft, warm.

The bore

. The geometry of the inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and wider. 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.

For what kind of music can the instrument be used?

RESONA is particularly suitable for recorders that are used in ensembles, for choral playing and as soloists.

Who is this instrument aimed at?

It follows that recorders made of RESONA are particularly suitable for beginners. Another law to be observed is that a higher quality instrument naturally makes playing together less complicated 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 breath is formed into a sheet of air. This air leaf is the central starting point of a flute's tone production. In interaction with the labium, this air leaf gives rise to the vibration that generates the flute's tone. The shape of the windway is therefore very influential The recorder 28HPK-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 of course extremely complex in their design and many parameters are influenced by each other.



The Paetzold by Kunath SOLO 28HPK-AS instrument is manufactured in the following design:.


. It is not always possible to place tone holes in that are comfortable to grip with the hands. Particularly on low recorders, some tone holes are located in places that are ergonomically inadequate for acoustic reasons. On these instruments, mechanics are added that make gripping significantly {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.
The 28HPK-AS instrument has the following keys: . This allows the recorder to be easily grasped by players with smaller hands. This type of keys is unique and legally protected. Especially in Taiwan and Korea, these instruments are frequently used in recorder orchestras by internationally renowned teachers of adolescent players.
But also older players with small hands appreciate the advantages of the .



The construction of a musical instrument fundamentally influences the way in which the flute can be handled in daily use, on the one hand, for ease of grip and, on the other, for compact transport.
This is a point that should not be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes multiple) instruments.
Leaders of large playing circles will agree.

Packing and accessories

. The model comes standard with Optional bag / case and the useful accessories: Grease jar, fingering chart, care instructions.

Hygiene tips

. If the recorder is used together, it is useful to clean the windway sterilely at regular intervals to ensure hygienic safety. For convenient but safe cleaning, the care product Flautisept has proven its worth. Flautisept is available in our assortment.

How to find a new instrument

. How do you find a future instrument without complications?
Ask acquaintances!
However, do not let "generally valid" rules such as "the material xy does not work at all in an ensemble / for professionals" discourage you from playing a new flute yourself. Your musical feeling is as unique as you are. Therefore, only you can decide which construction makes you personally happy.
Our recommendation is therefore: Try out unknown manufacturers that you have never tried before. You can lose nothing, but only win.
