The recorder with the article number: 2296-MOLL built by Mollenhauer is a companion, the in daily use constantly can provide fun.
This peculiarity is based to a large part on the clever merging of the marvelous form in interplay with the sound of the material Pearwood.

The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the recorder head where the breath is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the sound production. 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 influenceability of the possible sounds of the recorder.

The windway of the recorder 2296-MOLL of Mollenhauer has this windway shape: Curved, cylindrical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate the air leaf more than cylindrical windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the instrument is complex in their design. Damages here often lead to a total loss!
