Darn... I play a wind instrument, so it's been more comfortable for me as far as making wind instruments go. I don't mind trying to build a string instrument though. Does anyone have any preferences? (flute player = partial )Based on previous years, the most likely combination is string and percussion. However, there is no confirmation until the final rules come out.
Shoot, we don't have an orchestra at our school. Nobody knows how to play a string instrument.Based on previous years, the most likely combination is string and percussion. However, there is no confirmation until the final rules come out.
Just out of curiosity, since you won the event at nationals - what did you have for your instruments?I don't think they should make it actually concrete in the scoring, because then a good beautiful sounding guitar would get less points than a crappy but original oboe. As it is, you get points for creativity based on who else has what and if yours is unique, and I think it should stay like that (only 5 points out of your score). Also, adding electrophones changes a lot about the event. It goes from an acoustics physics event to an electrical engineering event, which I don't think they want. Membranophones cannot be mandatory in my opinion because the choices are so few and so difficult (timpanis? not a chance).
The fact of the matter is teams will find the easy way out. And they won't win. Even though creativity is only 5 points, you are scored better in so many categories if you have a unique instrument because the judges look at it in a better light all together. So the way to win is to not take the easy way, and let everyone else build 7-holed flutes and simple guitars.
