This is a while off yet, but I was wondering if anyone might be able to help...
For my physics coursework next year (some time in the Autumn), I'm doing an investigation into how different characteristics (length, wood etc) alter the harmonic spectrum of a recorder. I think its probably a bit like what Rosemary did a while back.
I'm fine with the different lengths, as I have everything from sopranino to tenor, and will get a garklein in plastic, but only have access to three different woods at the moment. I would have gone to the music shop and borrowed theirs, but a. they don't have very many, and b. I'm really not in their good books recorderwise at the moment ( ie recorder-still-not-fixed-fiasco
So this is where you come in: if you have a wooden treble recorder...
1) do you have some means of recording it?
2) would you be willing to play and record a 2-octave chromatic scale?
3) what woods and models are your recorders?
Ideally, I'd like to stick to mollenhauer denners, so that all thats changing is the wood, but obviously there might not be enought variation in wood type without including other models.
Really, I'm just looking for an indication of whether or not this could work.
