File description: Toy Fife - Hole Placement Your name: (optional) Sunny

File: Click here to d/l...  Hole placement for the common do-re-mi pattern   Make a flute out of PVC.  Includes hole placement.  Another PVC flute, with ways to calculate hole placement.  Yet another PVC flute....with modifications to Mark Shep's version.  Membrane kazoo  And last, but not least, a lovely Andean flute with Inca tones!
Bear in mind that the length to bore ratio is the most important factor in tuning a flute, so make sure you measure ACCURATELY before doing your hole placement calculations.  Likely you won't notice that you have made a mistake until the very last that is where the error will definitely show up.
Hope these help.... :)
