This F-Alto recorder with the model number: 4409-MAR constructed by Küng is an instrument, that in daily use continues to can give fun.
This characteristic is based to a large part on the skillful composition of the amazing instrument model in fine tuning with the advantages of the material Olivewood.

Therefore the sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person inthe details slightly varying. We say: Olivewood: Noble and full sound

The bore

The geometry of the inner bore of the recorder is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore shape grants this model its special tone.
In principle, models with wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than recorders with narrower inner bore.

For which music can the recorder best be used for?

Olivewood is greatly suitable for woodwinds used for: Ensemble, choral and solo performance.

To whom is this instrument addressed?

This means that recorders made of Olivewood are especially for ambitious amateurs and advanced players recommendable. A further valid rule is that a quality instrument makes the learning progress usually enriching than a apparently low-cost bargain.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the instrument headpiece where the breath of the musician is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis 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 not be damaged in any case. The same applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the sound and response of the recorder.

The windway of the model 4409-MAR of Küng 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 instrument is uncommon complex in their design. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!
