The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the recorder where the blowing air of the musician is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the recorders sound. At 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. This is the origin of the recorder tone. 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 shaping ability of the recorder.

The windway of the instrument T 8142 B-DOL of Dolmetsch has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical shaped windways.
Never violate windway and labium! Their meaning for the instrument is uncommon complex in their geometric shape. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!
