A trumpet player friend of mine suggested that making the bells of brass instruments might be logical place to experiment for that family.
I found the flutes and a few others here, a company called Pipe Makers Union.
Maybe if you can get some of the windbag players on the CF train, it'll help get the old guard of the strings to wake up!
