Tenor folk shawm
by pfh, published
This shawm has a simple six-hole fingering system. I am particularly pleased by how this model turned out. The finger spacing is not too wide (32mm between holes), and it can play a solid octave and a half.
The pitch is similar to soprano voice (tenor plus one octave).
Thanks again to John Boshua for an excellent print in ABS plastic.

The tops of the pieces should have joints and a bevel at the very top, eg if you look at them in the thingiview. Maybe a problem with your slicer?
HOW DO I PUT THIS TOGETHER? I printed the 4 piece but I cant put it together. The top of the pieces is flat. Will I have to glue it? I made sure it would fit the printer so its not a size problem.

Make a drinking-straw reed using the instructions here:
The straw should be 4-5mm diameter.
If the joints don't quite fit together, sand them a little until they do. Use some sort of grease to make tight seals between all the joints, and with the reed.
The fingering chart is straightforward:
More sizes of shawm, and designs with a more complex fingering system similar to recorder, are available in the "pre-built" design pack downloadable from:
