The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the head of the recorder where the blowing air is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the nucleus of the recorders sound. At 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 variability of musical expressiveness of the recorder.

The windway of the recorder KOPF-KUN of Kunath has this windway shape: Straight cylindrical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
