Thanks! I already have quite a few for different keys, including a high one (same pitch as a descant recorder) in carbon fibre which is so good that I'd like a more soulful version an octave lower, which is naturally more expensive and more involved to make, to minimize the hand-stretch.

I’d not considered carbon fiber as a material for instruments before. I found this article quite interesting tencom.com

Yes, that's interesting. For me, it's the consistency and exactness of the construction/tuning, the lightness, and the lack of warm-up time cf. wood.

A tour of Troldhaugen today, including Grieg’s house and the hut where he did his composing, then a short piano recital. Lovely.

If you get chance, Winniefree, visit Stavanger, or, even better, take the ferry ride there from Bergen. This Scottish guy tried it, and he also compared the two towns in another video.
