Description

Research notes

The row of closed bamboo pipes on this panpipe produces soft sounds whereas open pipes produce loud, low sounds. A panpipe consisting of both a row of open and closed pipes produces sympathetic resonance following the louder notes (see 22468) [D Akin 2013, pers. comm., 5 September].
