I've had an A whistle (blackwood) by Chris Abell for years. Have no further need for anything else. (Just checked the current prices on his web site. Ouch! Glad I bought it way back when.) Other than the cost, I can't think of a single negative thing to say about it. Same with the D.

Tin whistle player tries to go straight, but other whistlers ferret out his hiding place and drag him back into their nefarious world. Dave tried to contact me while my computer was in the shop and I was on vacation. Had an actual airmail letter from England from Dave in the mailbox when I got home ...

I have a brass low d numbered 2260. I bought it after I joined C&F in 2001 and I wouldn't have heard of Copelands before then. I bought it directly from him and was on a waiting list for at least 3 months then. (I didn't keep the receipt.)

Maybe I should get in on this. Been a long while. Just posted a couple of flute tunes of Arbo Doughty's and thought I'd peek in and see what's what. I'm still playing the whistle, but mostly in the house. Focusing on slow airs more. I do the music for a yearly memorial at my work place: an oncology ...

Arbo Doughty sends two on flute: Month of January and "Two Reels Podbean."

Funny you should ask. That would be me. I took over the web site from some one years ago (third caretaker, I think) and maintained it, which is to say, uploaded tunes if they were emailed to me. Never did any promotion, so it seems to have faded in notoriety.Nevertheless, I never...
