What kind of Pipe do you Play (or wish to make)? The common English Tabor and drum is popular with Morris Dancing groups. I like my Bass Galoubet Tabor played with a string drum called a Tambourin-A-Chords (3 pairs of strings tuned in keynote octave sets, struck with a cloth coverd stick).

I can't find an image of the Tambourin A chords (string drum) but I shall soon.

Our modern Flutophone or Tonette is based on a french closed bore tabor pipe called a "Fluviol". This was a 3 holed Tonette with 3 keys. It had a scale of 1+ octaves and was played with one hand as well. I saw a demonstration of French Tabour pipes in Scotland when a visited a Fair in Glasgow. They had a pair that consisted of a tenor pipe in D with a bass Pipe in G. The bass blayer used a Tambourin A Cords.

If anyone is unfamiliar with Tabor instruments and their tabulature, please speak up! This is an informal site. (Tabor Pipes use the small frequency shifts between registers {6+} to play a full 12 note scale)

Hi Thomas,

I'm making practice Tabors so as to play one handed while driving or doing something else. So far it's just PVC, but once I get the idea it's going to be my goal to make a wooden one.

I also like the idea of two tabor type pipes for chords. And the string drum is always cool, but for me a simple drum would be enough.

Morris Dancing is kinda cool, I am reminded of Chinese sword Kata and some Middle Eastern dances. I have a slight fantasy of creating a morris type dance that incorporates more martial skills.

ROFLOL! I can see Morris ankle bells used for defence! I assume you mean dancing like the dance of Brazilian Capoeira? I used to see these guys danceCapoiera in groups in down town San Antonio. Quite a "street ballet"!
