About: an earth human who likes geeky techy stuff

This is something I made a couple of years ago. It's basically a piece of pvc with a standard clarinet mouthpiece glued on. The finger holes were measured to make it in-tune. Takes a lot of air pressure, but it sounds rather nice for a piece of pvc (I'm a very amateur clarinet player so forgive the playing.)

    It actually sounds quite good - PLEASE make the instructable showing the sizes so others can DIY as well.

    I will when I can. I built this a few years ago, so I don't remember all the measurements. I'll have to go back and see if I can find my notes.

    Really cool. Just happen to have a spare mouthpiece layin' around. Any chance we can get the measurements. If you don't have the notes, how about measuring it out. Thanks.

    You should add a funnel at the bottom
