Shakuhachi work continues. I've posted a bit about it on the hellsite at https://twitter.com/unyuuwind, and with luck the store will open before too long.
Just in case this ends up being useful: https://circles.garden/profile/0xE7e77B04F860F86C1415Ef14D2B831b159dde414
Here's a demo of the folded bore shakuhachi. This is just a quick recording from my phone, so audio quality per se is nothing special, and I'm still getting used to playing them, so neither is the performance--but I hope it gives you some idea of what the instruments sound like now. https://photos.app.goo.gl/MbStkvXU7k7ECPN88
The other side.
After some more programming and debugging and printing, I now have version 2 of the folded-bore shakuhachi. To my surprise, this one is already a useful musical instrument with a clear, easy tone. It's a strong indication that this is a useful path and I'm so happy about it! Guitar pick for scale... this is small.
Since so many people have not asked, I have brought the "is Trump in prison yet" bot here.
There are refinements to be made before it is a real professional-quality instrument, but I feel like the approach has been validated and I now have little doubt that it's an achievable goal. For the most part this one plays in tune and with excellent tone, which the crappy webcam mic doesn't really let you hear. But so exciting....
