The Subcontrabass instrument with the model number: 489DB-AS-PBK manufactured by Paetzold by Kunath is an instrument, that in making music constantly can make happy.

The bore

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

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the headpiece of the recorder where the breath is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the recorders sound. In interaction with the labium, the air flow is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging stream stimulates the air in the bore. This is the origin of the recorder tone. This is the reason why the labium must not be damaged in any case. The same applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the artistic applicability of the recorder.

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