*Shakuhachi Fix*

Thanks to the weather we’ve been having recently, I’ve been able to truly wind-test the Shakuhachi chimes.

I’ve found that there is a pinch-note (or a *clank*,rather) that can be quite prominent in this note set if not strung the right way.

Unfortunately, the spiral design that I’ve used doesn’t help this problem.

However, I’ve “fixed” my set at home by simply sliding the two problem notes away from each other along the ring, greatly reducing the chance of this happening.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, I’d be more than happy to reconfigure the pipes to the new pattern that I’ll be using for this specific set from here on.
