I'd never heard of this maker until just now.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Irish-Low-whist ... SwuYVWokJe

Gorgeous work. It appears to be Overton-based.

The guy is a great player, both on whistle and on uilleann pipes.

Has anyone played one of his Low D whistles?

(By the way it was interesting to see that the Russian for "demo" is... "demo")

The guy has been making whistles for quite some time now and has only now opted for offering them on Ebay.

This is his page on Russian FB equivalent: https://vk.com/whistles_workshop

Beautiful workshop photos on the website.

Has Alexander Karavaev been added to the forum whistlemaker list?

Hi everybody! Alexander here) My friend just sent me a link on that topic) Thanks for kind words about my work! You free to ask me any questions here or in skype/e-mail or pm. E-mail: alexander.piper@gmail.com and Skype: alexander.karavaev4
Just let me know if you want to see additional photos or audio. I have some on my VK social net page ( https://vk.com/whistles_workshop , https://vk.com/albums-74845461 ) , but don't sure it will be handy for everybody to visit russian pages and translate it in google translator) I will try to start a multilanguage web site this year but there is so much work around now...
Glad to see my instruments after all those years on good-old C&F

Mostly i was in Uilleann pipes part of forum, so it's good time and reason to say "hello!" to whistle part)

Hello, and welcome to the whistle side of the forums. I hope you have much success with your whistles.

Do you make a high D whistle?

Those whistles look lovely. I'd love to try some of them next time you are in Ireland :)

Alex,
Welcome to the C & F Whistle Forum. Your whistles are beautiful to the eye and having listened to you play with Brian Finnegan the word "masterful" comes immediately to mind. Great craftsmanship and art combined. :thumbsup:

Good luck in all of your efforts.

Cheers,
Cayden

Beautiful whistles. I'm also curious to know more about how the designs in the metal are created.

At the moment i don't making high Eb, D, C. I need to remake some machinery and special devices for that. Hope to start making them in next 6 month. It's very complicated and not fast process. All news about it you can check on my web pages
