Quick Overview
Pentatonic Starflute, 440Hz

General informationThe

instrument from the series Sternenflöte with the model number: 50080 manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a musical tool that is always fun to

play music with. The

instrument owes this characteristic mainly to the clever marriage of the groundbreaking design in combination with the sound characteristics of the pear tree material used

. The characteristics can be characterised in this way:

The scaleThe

geometry of the inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and wider. In
principle, instruments with a wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and therefore more ensembleable than models with a narrower bore.

which music can the flute best be used?

Pearwood is excellently suited for recorders used in folk music and for the introduction to recorder playing.

Who is this instrument aimed

at? It follows that
pearwood instruments are particularly suitable for ambitious amateurs and advanced players. An additional general rule of thumb is that a higher quality instrument is in most cases more enriching to make music than a seemingly inexpensive offer. The wind tunnel of

the rec


wind tunnel is the area in the headpiece of the recorder in which the breathing air is formed into an air blade.

This air leaf is the nucleus of the instrument's sound, and in interaction with the labium, the air leaf generates the oscillation that generates the flute tone. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus one of the defining principles for the response and the sound of the flute.

The model
by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and very narrowly cylindrical in shape. Conical wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrically shaped ones.
Wind tunnels are of course extremely complex in their design and many parameters are influenced by each other.

tone holes cannot always be drilled in places that can be easily reached with the hands. Especially with deep instruments, tone holes are located in positions that are not ergonomically accessible for tuning reasons. These instruments are equipped with flaps that make gripping
much easier or even possible in the first place.

The instrument 50080 has


following flaps: Without. This key mechanism is unique and legally protected and allows players with smaller hands to grasp the recorder comfortably. Especially in Taiwan and Korea, these models are often

but also by older players with reduced grip of the hands enjoy the advantages of the Without.


designThe structural design in relation to the multi-part design of a musical instrument strongly influences the way in which the flute in use on the one hand allows a meaningful handling in terms of easy graspability and on the other hand a safe transport.

This is a point not to be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes more than one) instrument
. Ask the old ensemble leaders once.

Packaging and accessoriesThe

instrument comes as standard with a bag and the following accessories: If the instrument
