Thanks guys! The flute in Glossy Antique Bronze costs around $140 to produce, I'm willing to let them go for $200 through Shapeways. I'm curious about some of the other materials, maybe frosted ultra-detail would work for something like this? And yes, it works as a flute. I'll definitely be posting a video soon.
Lol Duann, yes of course. Mouthpiece on a Shakuhachi just kindof rests below your bottom lip, not like a regular flute, it's a lot harder to play as you know. It might be interesting to do a combination of materials, one material for a removable mouthpiece, and another for the flute itself. I may also use bamboo mouthpieces.
