The windway of a recorder

The windway is the area in the instrument headpiece where the breath of the musician is formed into a sheet of air. This air leaf is the basis of tone 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. 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 influenceability of the available sounds of the instrument.

The windway of the recorder 2256-MOLL of Mollenhauer has this windway shape: Curved, cylindrical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate breathing air more than cylindrical windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the function is complex in their geometric shape. Damages here often lead to a total loss!
