[oddmusic] membrane pipe advice?


As part of my instrument-a-day project, I made a membrane pipe for the first time a few days ago: http://www.moonmilk.com/2012/02/23/instrument-a-day-23-membrane-pipe/

I like it a lot - it only took a few minutes to put together, and it has a surprisingly nice mellow sound. I'd like to make a more serious version of a membrane pipe, and an "organ" with multiple fixed pipes, so I'm wondering about best practices. Is it possible to make a membrane pipe with a more stable pitch? What kind of membrane materials work well, don't stretch, and last for a long time?

If you have experience with these things, or know of good resources, I welcome your advice!
