Hi all,

I'm having difficulty finding any online equation for calculating the

hole positions for a pvc clarinet. I have made the following instrument

and I now wish to make another in a different key -

http://www.geocities.com/danielbruner/instruments/clarA3.html

I presume the pitch at a hole is related to 3 parameters - the length

and diameter of the pipe, and the diameter of the first open hole from

the mouth piece. By adjusting the diameters of the holes in my last

instrument I was able to tune it. Can anyone supply me with the

equation? (I'm hoping I don't have to buy a book in order to obtain

what should be freely available to everyone) I have the instrument

built and now I simply need to drill the holes.

Thanks very much for your help,

Charley.
