How to use FluteMate – Explained with an exaple
In this section we will try to understand how to use FluteMate practically with an example.
- Let us suppose we want to make A Natural Bass flute out of a bamboo cut piece.
- The first thing is to figure out the right bamboo and the appropriate dimensions required by A Natural Bass. Let us refer the flute measurement chart to know the various specifications of A Natural bass.
- For A Natural Bass, the total length as given by the chart is 23 Inches and diameter is 20.5 mm. The required wall thickness for A Natural Bass is is 20.5 mm.
- In case of a bamboo, it is difficult to find out a bamboo with exact diameter and wall thickness as required by a particular key, so we have to take a bamboo which has the parameters closer to the above values.
- Now, as we read in this article that the length of the bamboo taken to make any scale flute should be little longer than the total length of the flute. In this case, we have to take a bamboo few inches longer than 23 Inches. It is reasonable to take 24.5 Inches.
- Now, let us calculate the measurements of A Natural Bass in FluteMate.
- TheFluteMate says that the input value to be entered in the green input box should be in Centimeters.
- Now we have to convert 23 Inches into Centimeter. For this, let us use our Inch to Centimeter converter.
- The converted value is 58.42 Cm.
- Now let us type 58.42 in the green box in FluteMate.
- The measurement required for an A natural bass will appear in the output boxes of the respective holes.
- The values obtained in FluteMate will represent the distance of each hole (mouth hole, six finger holes, and the pancham hole) of the A Natural Bass flute measured from the top end of the bamboo
In conclusion, we have demonstrated how to use FluteMate in conjunction with flute measurement charts and Inch to Centimeter converter to craft any scale of flute, using an example.
In our next article, we will guide you through the first step towards making a professional flute, which is selecting the appropriate bamboo for flute-making.
