    Can't say I've heard the words "low pressure" and "Tibia Clausa" in the same sentence before...

      can someone change the spelling on the title it makes me cringe i cant change it. Got any flute alternatives? Anything on Flauto Mirabilis?

    the typical Tibia Clausa is a larger scaled stopped wood flute with a high cut-up. They are usually more successful in high-pressure pipe organs (Theatre organs). Quintedena pipes are also usually stopped wood pipes, a more modest scale with a cut-up that tends to emphasize the 3rd partial (hence the "quint" in the name). The best substitute for a Tibia Clausa in a classical organ is probably the Doppleflute, which has a sound of a similar nature and intensity.

      You might try the scale of an old moller or kilgen number one open. They weren't far from the tibia class. just make some stoppers.You better make sure you can make enough wind..
