The with the model number: 2246-MOLL constructed by Mollenhauer is a musical tool, that in daily use repeatedly can give fun.
This characteristic is due to the skillful composition of the unique concept in fine tuning with the qualities of the material Pearwood.

The material creates in this instrument a conspicuous characteristic, by its materialtypical preferences. The qualities can described in the following words, whereas it is in the nature of things that sounds can always be described inadequately with words. Therefore the material typical sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person inthe details a bit differently. We use these words: Pearwood: Soft, choral sound. Suitable for playing in a group

The bore

The course of the inner bore of the recorder is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore shape grants the instrument this tipically tone.
In principle, recorders with wider bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more suitable for ensembles than instruments with narrower scale.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the headpiece of the recorder where the blowing air of the musician is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is of one of the most important elements of tone production. In interaction with the labium, the air flow is very quickly alternately directed inwards and outwards. This swinging stream stimulates the air in the bore. 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 range of artistic applicability of the instrument.

The windway of the model 2246-MOLL of Mollenhauer has this windway shape: Curved, cylindrical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Never violate windway and labium! Their meaning for the sound is very complex in their geometric shape. Damages here often lead to a total loss!
