The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the breath is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the sound of the recorder. 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 tone. 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 instrument 509B-AUL of Aulos has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical shaped windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the function is very complex in their geometric shape. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!
