Re: Flute in G
- When you come to within a half step of your
intended note...always consider running with that. But if
the bore is smaller that what you might normally use,
the fundemental will indeed sound rich while the rest
of the notes may be a bit of a problem with small
fingerholes if you have large fingers, or a jumping to that
second note without a smooth trasition.<br> At this
point, if you make the decision to cut it up, cut very
small slices until you approach G, for instance. Just
flat of G - rethink all of the options that will
change the note. If you work the TSH any it will raise
the note up to G (if your lucky). Sand the bore and
it will change the note. Then get it right on key.
Adding fingerholes will lower the fundemental again,
slightly and yet another sliver may need to be cut off
later.<br>When you had that F#, you were within 1/2 inch or so
of your intended length. <br>Don't get discouraged.
Now you know what a short fat flute is like and why
you don't want one of those. When you lose the
battle, don't lose the lesson.<br>My advise...get right
back on that 3/4 bore horse and teach it a lesson.
Mill another one and make it work. I think you'll be
surprised at the outcome. Start with a blank that is only
as long as your F#...that way you won't be tempted
to cut too much off.
- There's all kind of drawings with dimensions in the
file section. Just check it out.
