INSTRUMENT CLASSIFICATION ACCORDING TO RAW MATERIALS: EXAMPLIFICATION ON WIND INSTRUMENTS
In this study, the family of wind instruments has been defined and the instruments included in this family been explained. The raw materials that are used in the production of wind instruments firstly classified according to their sources, and then chemical and physical features which make them different from the others are explained. The raw materials which are used in those instruments have been examined and classified according to their sources, chemical features, structures, and similarities. It has been seen that the raw materials which can be grouped as organics, inorganics according to their sources and composite which is made of using atleast two different kind of any material. Then those classes also allocated as the animal, herbal and synthetic under the organics; metal and nonmetal minerals under the inorganics and also the composites are separated as resinous and non-resinous structures. Although there are different types of wind instruments with each different raw material, these are compared with examples of wind instruments which produced via 3D printers. In this study, all these results and the classifications have been tabulated.
