The wind tunnel of a recorder


The windway is the area in the recorder's headjoint where the musician's breath is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is one of the most important elements of the instrument's tone production. In interaction with the labium this air leaf gives rise to the vibration which generates the flute tone. The shape of the windway is therefore extremely relevant for the artistic usability of the recorder.

The instrument 23DB-AS by Paetzold by Kunath has a windway that is straight and conical.
Conical windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrically shaped ones.
Wind tunnels are very complex in their geometric shape and many parameters play together.



The flute Paetzold by Kunath SOLO 23DB-AS is delivered in the version: Baroque fingering.


. It is not always possible to place tone holes in places in the body that are comfortable and easy to reach with the fingers. Particularly on larger recorders, tone holes are located in places that are impossible to reach for address-related reasons. On these instruments, the instrument makers add mechanics that make fingering much {simplify|easier, or even possible in the first place.
The 23DB-AS instrument has the following keys: Paetzold full keys. This allows the recorder to be played well by players with smaller hands. This type of keys is unique and legally protected. Especially in Korea and Taiwan these models are often used in youth ensembles by leading teachers for adolescent players.
But also adult players with reduced grip span of the hands appreciate the advantages of the Paetzold full key.

Body construction


The structural design in terms of the multi-piece nature of a flute strongly influences the way in which the woodwind instrument enables easy handling in terms of ease of grip 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.
