I am wanting to make a walking stick flute out of bamboo, and figured I have one of two ways to best do it. NAF style, or transverse. I have made NAFs, but not transverse or anasazi/rimblown.
With the NAF style I can use the four direction hole method and be ok, though I have never done this before. But, is it the same method for the transverse and rim blown? I don't want to assume a thing with this, because I doubt I will find bamboo this sturdy for a long time. I pose the question to you, my educated peers, as well as another. We all know to an extent, no matter what they say, size matters. As I am still very amateur, what flute would best fit the dimensions that I have?
My bamboo measures:
15/16" OD at blowing end
11/16" ID at blowing end
