The recorder with the article number: 1402-KUE from Küng is an instrument, that in making music continues to will provide fun.
This peculiarity is based to a large part on the skillful combination of the outstanding design in interplay with the qualities of the material Maple.

This material creates in the instrument a pleasant uniqueness, by its special characteristics. The qualities can be descibed approximately so: inadequately with words. Therefore the material typical sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person in details slightly uniquely. We use these words: Maple: Warm and clear, slightly thinner than pearwood

The bore

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

Maple is particularly for instruments used for: focus on choral playing, recorder ensembles and orchestras, other styles are possible.

To whom is this musical instrument addressed?

For the above facts it follows that recorders made of Maple are especially for ambitious amateurs and advanced players recommendable. An additional valid law is that a valuable instrument makes the learning progress in most cases easier apparently low-cost offer.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the instrument where the blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of the instruments tone. In interaction with 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 not be damaged in any case. The same rule applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the variability of the available sound spectra of the instrument.

The windway of the model 1402-KUE of Küng has this windway shape: Straight, conical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Never violate windway and labium! Their meaning for the sound is complex in their design. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!
