Clinton's "Two Cups L1-L2" model


Here we examine one of the models of Clinton's Equisonants that I have tentatively identified as the "Two Cups L1-L2" model.  We'll look at Clinton & Co #533, which is No 710 in the Dayton C Miller collection at the Library of Congress, Washington DC.  Other Clinton Equisonants which appear to belong to the same model can be found in the table at Clinton's Extant Flutes.
