Re: K2? my take.
- Mike, All those formulas...so little time. I
don't let silly things like forumlas stop me from
making a wide/shallow flue. Choosing a flue width comes
early in the construction scheme and making a wide flue
is simply the best way to induce a clean tone with
as little effort as possible. A wide flue allows for
more air molecules to "do the dance" at the cutting
edge and making it shallow reduces the "breathy"
quality. The exit hole, under the bird, is as wide as the
flue. This makes for NO back pressure. When a wide flue
functions well, you should be able to FEEL the entire flute
vibrate with each note.
- There's all kind of drawings with dimensions in the
file section. Just check it out.
