Twistable Flaps For M55 Available
as promised a long time ago, I have constructed my twistable flaps for Musser M55 vibraphones. The video describes what you need and how to mount the flaps respectively.
I can provide the data for 3D printing the flaps free of charge for private use on mail request.
I can't give a functional guarantee because I don't have the tolerances of 3D printing manufacturing and the vibraphones themselves in hand. But it is no problem at all to get the whole thing working.
At worst, one or the other longer or shorter flap is still needed. I will be happy to supply the data on request.
The attached file BOM.PDF contains a list of all 3D printed parts. Where no quantity is given, it is a matter of modified lengths in order to be able to compensate for any tolerances.
I made my second set of flaps (black) on a simple, off-the-shelf 3D printer like almost every mechanical engineering student has. But there are also internet providers for 3D printing everywhere. They are a bit more expensive, but also more accurate.
Since I don't have a Musser vibe myself, I'm very interested in feedback.
All the best and have fun
