This Soprano with the model number: AS442-TAK manufactured by Takeyama is a recorder, the in playing always will give fun.
This peculiarity is based to a large part on the skillful merging of the special design in interplay with the advantages of the material Maple.

The material creates in this instrument a unique characteristic, by its special preferences. The properties can be descibed approximately so, whereas it is in the nature of things that sounds can always be described very inadequately with words. Therefore the material typical sound of recorders is perceived and described by each person in details a bit varying. We use these words: Maple: Warm and clear, slightly thinner than pearwood

The bore

The geometry of the inner bore of the recorder is light cylindroconical. This kind of bore shape grants this model its characteristic sound.

The windway of the recorder

The windway is the area in the instrument headpiece where the breath is formed into a thin sheet of air. This air leaf is the determining element of the instruments tone. 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 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 instrument AS442-TAK of Takeyama has this windway shape: Curved, conical.
Conical shaped windways accelerate breathing air more than cylindrical windways.
Never underestimate windway and labium! Their meaning for the function is uncommon complex in their design. Damages here often lead to a total loss!
