My new offering finally has a name: The Rambler. It's a brass and Delrin C/D set, with the bodies joined in the middle, like Clare whistles. The cloth bag is included, for a cost of C$160, which is only US$120, with the current state of the Canuck Buck. http://obrienwhistles.com/sitebuilder/images/I...

It's me again, with another clarification. I think the whistle he got second hand is not my original narrow bore brass, which was made from thick-walled tubing. The way he described it sounds like a D/C set that I made a few of, in the two-piece style of a Clare whistle. I couldn't think of a catchy...

I thought I would mention, because of a previous post in this thread, that the rosewood I offer is not subject to the CITES ban. It is not a true "Dalbergia" rosewood, like African blackwood (grenadilla). It is also called morado. I'm running quite low on it, though, so if you're intereste...

Here's what I do when I make a whistle with a similar design to a Clare. You need access to a vise with either wooden or plastic jaw pads. Squeeze the outer part of the joint in the vise until it is slightly distorted. Then rotate it a few times while it is in the vise. Check the fit and repeat, if ...

Are they metal or wood? If wood, you should use a drill press and a bit with brad points. A regular bit will not drill a curved wooden surface cleanly. If metal, you should also use a drill press and mark the hole location with a punch. Then start with a small bit and gradually open up the hole, usi...

I went to the afternoon session yesterday at the Cobblestone, here in Dublin. The piper gave my Delrin Rover a try. Here’s a link to the video. Does anyone know the titles of the tunes?

Richard- I’ve seen the ones on the flutelab site. They seem to come as part of the headjoint package. Do you know where they can be bought on their own?
