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.
@ratwerks Sweet! I will share the model but it's not *quite* ready. I want to improve the durability and the aesthetics, and verify that the tuning is spot on. After that, absolutely!
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.
@aneel I'm still getting the hang of playing it and will probably have to make at least one more revision before it can be a real useful musical instrument. For example, the blowing end needs to be brought up so that my mouth can sit at the proper angle.
@shonalika something that reliably works for me is to decide, as i am going to sleep, that when i wake up in the morning i will immediately get up.
@ceejbot The dog was a surprise star for me.
Also I'll be curious to hear if you think the show holds up these days. (Had you seen it before?)
