This F-Alto instrument with the article number: 5347-MOE built by Moeck is an instrument, that in playing always can provide fun.

The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the recorder head where the breath of the musician is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the sound production. At the labium, the air stream is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging flow 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 never be damaged. The same applies to the windway. Otherwise suffer the musical expressiveness of the recorder.

The windway of the instrument 5347-MOE of Moeck has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical shaped windways.
Never violate windway and labium! Their meaning for the sound is uncommon complex in their design. Even minor damages here often lead to a total loss!
