Small Loud Conical Bore Double Reed Instruments

January 27th, 2010

Poking around on wikipedia, it looks like the idea of making a short loud conical bore double reed instrument is really common:
Instument Name Country Name Image
Raita North Africa
Sopile Croatia
Sorna Iran
Shehnai India
Suona China
Guliling Tibet
Dulzaina Spain
Hne Myanmar
Mizmar Egypt
Piffero Italy
Ken Bau Vietnam
Taepyeongso Korea
Bombarde Brittany
I could make a cylindrical one pretty easily, along the same lines as a pvc penny whistle, but I don't have good ideas on how to make a conical one. Perhaps by buying several sizes of pvc and putting them together where each one's outer diameter matched the next one's inner diameter, then removing the part I don't want? Sounds like a lot of work.
