Default Re: Dowel reeds

Perhaps not directly transferable to GHB, but I had some fun last year building a set of smallpipes from plastic and brass tube and epoxy, courtesy Eric Reiswig’s online ‘how to’ instructions...

These use drone reeds made from 4&5mm brass tube nested together with tongues made from 60 thou acrylic sheet, Less than £1 for an A4 sheet....hardly the smoothest tone ever, but they worked.... much to my amazement 😀

Apologies for the mix of meric and imperial units.... it’s an age thing here in UK....brought up amphibious.

While cane ruled supreme for many years and I’m sure huge efforts go into finding commercial alternatives I don’t believe that should stop us amateurs having a go at using whatever comes to hand.... experiments always teach something, even if only what not to do!
