True Sound Hole

Some nice pictures and diagrams of the TSH, flue, and SAC exit can be found at http://goss.rho.net/flute/htm/fipple.htm

Note: Flue design is tied to TSH design. See topic "Flue" for more information about flue design.
Generally, the flue width should be the same as the TSH width.

  • Size
    From Dale at Native Flute Woodworking Yahoo group:
    Quote:
    Usually , the width of the TSH is something like half the bore
    diameter (for example ,a 7/16 width TSH for a 7/8 bore..) , and the
    length 7/32 (or less...More , the sound becomes breathy).
    But these measurments are just standard values , that i have seen in
    some manuals and plans , and these dimensions can vary a lot with
    different makers (and different kinds of flute design...).

    The more the TSH is long , the more the sound becomes breathy.
    The more the TSH is short , the more the sound becomes buzzy , and
    disappear...
    The more the TSH is wide , the more the fundamental becomes sharp.
    And inversely.
