Zampogna request

Post by bobble991 » Wed May 28, 2008 3:56 pm

Are there any zampogna owners around here who would be prepared to do me the HUGE favour of taking some photos of their instruments for me. I would love to see the large and small chanters out of the stocks from a couple of different angles in order to improve my understanding of the instrument.
Also Im looking for tech drawings of a ciaramelle.
