Yes, it's sounds like a studio version.  I found a live one but the sound wasn't great.  Incredible playing.

But who's playing the music?

If anyone's interested it's Mate Bekavac, a new name to me but wow!

This is impressive on what looks like a Chinese 5 axis cnc mill.

But who's playing the music.  Giora Feidman?  Whoever it is, I want that recording.

If you are going to use thread you should wax it with beeswax.  Silk or linen thread can be used as an alternative to cotton.  As with everything on musical instruments, different people swear by different materials.  Also some early instrument makers recommend random wrapping rather than neat spirals.

A bit of sympathetic vibration. Would be neat if all the notes sounded like that 😉

A barrel with a membrane in it like a kazoo might be interesting.  The Chinese dizi flute has that sort of arrangement.

Dead right Jared.

It was a weak spring on the Ab/Eb key.  It was originally too strong and I'd been trying to lighten it but I overdid it and this happened.  I've never come across anything like it before.  It only affected the low E.  Every other note was fine.

Clue:  It only happens playing loudly.

In all my years I've never come across this fault before.

The multiphonic low E here.  I've never heard anything like it before.  I'm not growling or anything like that.

I've fixed it now but let's see if anyone can guess what the cause was.

Rather than sell them, you could publish the stl on say, thingiverse and let others benefit for free.

The Noblet sounds awful again.  Like fingernails on a blackboard.  On the Yamaha, the 3 sounds like it's a bit too hard.

Nice,  It's good to see practical uses of 3d printing.

Excellent.  I've got a lathe so making a bench peg was quite easy.  Maybe an electric drill in a vice could serve as a makeshift lathe.  I've done equally crazy things in the past but be careful.  Power tools and lash-ups like that aren't very compatible with health and safety.

I guess it's ordered by now so, since you are going to be doing quite a lot of sanding, you may want a bench peg as well.  It holds the clarinet between your belly and the bench and makes sanding the corks quite a bit easier and quicker.

Be careful not to sand the wood of the tenon.  That leads to wobbly joints.

I would always get thicker rather than thinner corks. You can always sand down thick corks; if you get ones that are too thin you're basically screwed.

Yes, as advised earlier

...you may need to sand it thinner.
