Xun (埙)

Xun (埙)
By MxRemy

A Xun flute! There aren’t many on here, so I figured why not take a crack at it myself.

So, first of all, don’t expect this thing to be in tune at all. Exactly zero calculations were done with respect to volume, hole size, etc. That said, all the dimensions were very loosely eyeballed to match Caran’s design for a 10-hole xun in C Major, so it might be approximately that.

Another thing I got from Caran’s design, and the design of any real professional xun, is to give the embouchure hole a fine blowing edge. If you just make the hole a plain cylinder then it’ll be like blowing on a jug. Way way harder.

Second, I added some texture to the tone holes à la Klowsen’s design, to make them easier to find by feel. Mine are raised however, rather than undercut.

Third, I’ve read in H. H. Lee’s book that xuns with a sort of faux secondary chamber have improved acoustics in the higher notes. I’ve also seen a few for sale this way. I tried to incorporate one of these chambers into my design.

Everything should hopefully print just fine without any support, but I haven’t tested it yet. If you try it before I do, let me know how it worked for you! Also, thanks to all the other xun designers on here, whose work mine is based on.
