Earlier on in this space I’ve mentioned our series of how-to books (each with audio CD) on the making of various instruments. Books that have already appeared in the series include Funny Noises for the Connoisseur; Wind Chimes: Design and Construction, Slap Tubes and Other Plosive Aerophones, Making Marimbas and other Bar Percussion Instruments, and Making Musical Instruments with Children, all available in our catalog. Yet to come in the series, if we all live long enough, are book/CDs on ocarinas, aeolian harps, and … well, and whatever else seems like a promising candidate for such treatment. Typically these books are authored by Bart Hopkin and a co-author or two chosen for their expertise with the instrument in question. Each book presents basic principles for design and construction along with sets of plans.
