Probably OK for tuning, but I also want to do some experiments with reeds, and a constant-flow, hands-and-feet-free system would be preferable. Ideally quiet so as not to interfere unduly with measurements and recordings. Desirable to have suck and blow available. Don't want to spend a fortune though. Any bright ideas? Good to know too what people have tried and how well they have gone. Nice to kno
  2. You may remember me talking about getting some bits together to research concertina pneumatic issues. Well, the slow boat from China has come in, and the even slower boat that is me seems to have got its act together. Here's the result: An explanation of what it it comprises is at http://www.mcgee-flutes.com/Concertina/Concertina%20pneumatics%20lab.htm An interesting little challenge that came up too.

Pad seating is critical in flutes, but it's pretty easy to do a suck test, so most flute repairers just do that. Being somewhat of a fetishist, I use a Magnahelic Flute Leakage meter to refine that test.
