First Scale attempt on Basswhistle
Below, I'm testing prototype #1 of a lever keying system for my first C basswhistle.
Bass Whistle Tonehole Position sheet. 1.5" Sched.40 PVC
|NOTE||PITCH (Hz)||Diam.||Position||Pos. (mm)|
To add the side hole, subtract 75mm from the positions and measure on a separate piece of PVC.
The foot-piece dimensions are in the basswhistle yahoogroups library.
The key to sealing the tonehole was the use of Frost King Brand 3/4" Foam Weatherstrip, make sure to use the
type the is labeled "Waterproof Self-Stick Closed Cell PVC 3/4"Wide x 3/16"Thick x 17' Long. Part Number V449.
UPC Number 0-77578-01267-4. You won't need the entire 17' - maybe there is a smaller one available.
I found this at a local Lowes Store - you can line the strips side by side and it'll still seal.
