Stealers Wheel "Stuck in the middle with you", and Bachman-Turner Overdrive "You ain't seen nothing yet". Whistles can do traditional *and* contemporary

It's been a long time since 1970s music was 'contemporary'. :lol:
My brain hurts

Tell us something.: i've been making flutes for over twenty years, playing with friends and neighbors who help me tune my instruments and encourage me to share my art with the world. I carve bamboo flutes using concentrated sunlight and 3D-print whistle mouthpieces down to 42" contrabasses, as well as one-handed double tabor pipes.

The main press in making a double english tabor is getting an octave from two pipes in harmony with one hand. My prototype I posted has already been modified to move the G pipe down to the same hand position as the D pipe. With another pair tuned in fourths, I’d be able to play four pipes with two hands. The harmonic palette this would offer is wider than a traditional drone flute. It’s always nice to see someone applying their knowledge to new situations.
