 Küng F-Alto, Plumwood
Baroque Doublehole, Item: 4404-MAR Natural, 442 Hz

This F-Alto with the model number: 4404-MAR from Küng is a musical tool, that in daily use unfailingly can make joy.
This circumstance is based to a large part on the clever marriage of the outstanding instrument model in fusion with the qualities of the material Plumwood.

The material makes this instrument a conspicuous characteristic, by its special preferences. The characteristics can described as follows: very inadequately with words. Therefore the sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person inthe details uniquely. We use these words: Plumwood: Overtone-rich, slightly nasal sound. Fits very well with singing voices

The bore

The course of the inner bore of the instrument is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore course grants the recorder such a special sound.
In principle, instruments with wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than models with narrower scale.

For what styles can the recorder be used for?

Plumwood is particularly for recorders used for: Ensemble, choral and solo performance.

To whom is this recorder addressed?

For the above facts it follows that recorders made of Plumwood are especially for ambitious amateurs and advanced players recommendable. A second valid principle is that a more instrument makes the learning progress naturally enriching than a low-quality low-cost bargain.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the breath of the musician is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is of one of the most important elements of the instruments tone. At the labium, the air stream is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging flow stimulates the air in the bore. And this is the origin of the recorder sound. This is the reason why the labium must never be damaged. The same applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the response and sound of the instrument.

The windway of the model 4404-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 sound is very complex in their design. Damages here often lead to a total loss!


The model Küng 4404-MAR is offered in the version: Baroque Doublehole .
