I need to get that book but your right its aÂ straightÂ bore right now for testing. trumpet areÂ straightÂ bore but the piston make some of the changes. I might do a classic call to post horn... But what I really want to build... Is an F-horn all 3d printed or an aÂ BachÂ cornet with a conical bore. As you can tell i am a brass player. After that I want some new excite music development for brass.. maybe with pickups..Â
The book "The Physics of Musical Instruments" has a good if somewhat mathematical discussion of brass instruments. With fingerholes, you probably want a conical bore. With valves or a trombone slide, there's a straight section then a horn of a particular shape.
Valves would be very impressive, but may be beyond current printers. Maybe a trombone slide with non-printed straight tubing and printed curves, horn, mouthpiece would be possible?
Even simpler, no finger holes, no valves, just a sufficiently long tube. The upper harmonics get close enough together that a tune can be played.
