  • Small Loud Conical Bore Double Reed Instruments

    January 27th, 2010
    music  [html]
    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.
