Why Yeti? Because Micah didn't want things to be taken too seriously. So, for his pipes he grabbed a name inspired by the likes of 1950s adventure magazines - a name that was fun. I suspect he indeed had great fun with this shape, taking a well-known (and often copied) Lars theme, and simply running with it, creating something grand and sweeping, smooth and powerful in gesture, yet with no lack of well-implemented ruggedness as well.
