A note about the construction of the pipes. As you'll no doubt know, I'm committed to (and fascinated by) exploring the use of 3D printing to construct musical instruments. In the case of these pipes, for Version 3 I've moved to using a new light, strong and very slightly porous material, which I have found provides good wood-like acoustic properties. At present, this material is only available in white, however being slightly porous (similar to hardwood) it can be coloured & hand finished to provide a protective skin that has a wood-like lustre, and is resistant to wear, knocks & scratches.
