My only hesitation is what registration to use. Any thoughts from the list's collective wisdom would be much appreciated.   Many thanks.   Mark Harris =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

The terminology often varies from builder to builder. For example, E. M. Skinner's Flauto Mirabilis stop is a wide scaled open wood stop with a circular mouth. I have seen a Casavant Gross Flute made as an open wood flute with two mouths -- like a Doppelfl=F6te only open. Often these stops have leathered lips, although I have sven seen a Casavant Tibia with the lower lips covered with bushing cloth.   John Speller St. Louis, Missouri   TRACKELECT@cs.com wrote: >=20 > Reguarding open wooden flutes: There is also the Philomela, Hohlflute a= nd the > Flute Creuse.
