Really would like to see/hear more!
When Jim was making an instrument to match on of my retuned vibraphones,
the first thing he did is but his fingers down on the tube and said this is
where the holes were going to be, weather i liked it or not :)
From here, it was a matter of having a set of drill bits of graduated
width and we proceeded up until we got the pitches we could. When tuning we
also had him play evenly without seeing the tuner so he wouldn't adjust to
it. you probably have noticed that the smaller the hole the more control you
can have over the tuning!
