The windway of a 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 of one of the most important elements of the instruments tone. In interaction with the labium, the air flow is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging stream stimulates the air in the body of the instrument. This is the origin of the recorder sound. This is the reason why the labium must not be damaged in any case. The same rule applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the musical expressiveness of the recorder.

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