I just had a sudden idea, and I'm waiting for some glue to dry to try it out. I'm sure it must have been done before, but I haven't seen it. Maybe someone can tell me how it's been around for hundreds of years and what it's name is.
I just took four pipes, at the lengths of a tabor pipe and it's three holes, and arrayed them like a pan pipe. I hope to be able to blow them in the second and third register, and play them like a tabor.
Now, in my limited experience, pan pipes are stopped, and you cannot play anything but the first register, at double the length. These are, of course, open and can play the harmonic sequence.
Can anybody Name that Tunemaker?
