Kung is a respected manufacturer of recorders. The single bottom hole with a single key and pad indicates that the instrument is rather old in the grand scheme of things. If I understand Kung’s system of date stamping, 6K1 means that the instrument was made in November (A B C … K L) of 1961. If it’s that old, and particularly if it hasn’t been played in a while, it could stand to have the bore oiled.
