(back) Subject: 16' open to 32' stopped From: "Caroline Kehne" <ckehne@accglobal.net> Date: Sun, 25 Feb 2001 18:25:36 -0500   A few days ago, there was a discussion on converting 16' open woods to 32' stopped pipes. One recurring comment was that the bottom 3-4 pipes might be too short to allow for a tuning cap. Has anyone tried making 32' rohrflutes instead of 32' bourdons? Maybe the chimney could provide the extra speaking length?   Robert Pelletier
