The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the recorder where the blowing air is formed into a 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 bore. 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 attainable sounds of the instrument.
