This recorder with the model number: 489-AS-PBK manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is a companion, the in lessons, or performing always can make joy.
This circumstance is based to a large part on the careful combination of the genius concept in fusion with the characteristics of the material Birch plywood.

The bore

The geometry of the inner bore of the recorder is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore course gives the instrument this tipically sound.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the breath is formed into a sheet of air. This air leaf is of one of the most important elements of tone production. In interaction with the labium, the air stream is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging flow stimulates the air in the body of the instrument. And this is the origin of the recorder sound. This is the reason why the labium must never be damaged. The same rule applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the variability of musical expressiveness of the instrument.

The windway of the recorder 489-AS-PBK of Paetzold by Kunath has this windway shape: Straight, conical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Never violate windway and labium! Their meaning for the instrument is exceedingly complex in their design. Damages here often lead to a total loss!
