How to: Build medieval instruments out of PVC pipe

My friend Kate, despite being a hard-rockin' bass player in a kick-ass girl group, is also a part-time medieval music enthusiast: "I've been looking some stuff up about crumhorns and related instruments, for kicks, and found these instructions on how to make your own cornemuse, (like the crumhorn in the picture, but straight) in only one and a half hours, and using a fizzy pop drink straw as the reed. It's probably way too low tech for your readers, but just imagine the joy that an army of enthusiasts wielding jerry built shawms would bring." I can't wait!
