PURPOSE: Show basic features of a very simple flute.
DESCRIPTION: A "flute" has been constructed using a section of thin-walled plastic. Finger holes have been crudely positioned to obtain a diatonic scale, and the end near the embouchure hole has been covered with tape.
To get the intonation reasonably close it was necessary to make the holes fairly large, so the flute may be a wee bit difficult to play if you have small fingers.
