#beginquote# The giant needle is for cleaning. However, a paper towel should NOT be used for two reasons: 1. The cloth used should be lint-free (which paper is not) and 2. A paper towel is fragile and can break off, getting stuck inside the recorder. As far as tuning is concerned, the position of your mouth can change the pitch of the recorder. You are right - you can adjust the mouthpiece in or out (thereby making the instrument longer or shorter), as well as the other pieces, as long as the recorder is one that comes apart. The longer the instrument, the lower the pitch; the shorter the instrument, the higher the pitch. I have heard recorders be a whole step low, just because of the position of the mouth. Another cause is not putting enough air into the instrument. Likewise, too much air can raise the pitch. A lot of air REALLY raises the pitch!!! Hope this helps! #endquote#
