Yes, you are correct! i'm a big fan!

The whistles plays really well, the afination and volume are really good. They need some extra pression in the second octave, but it wasn't problem for me...
Tomorrow i'll get an Bb and A set, one mouthpiece two bodies. Hope they play like the high D you saw in the videos.

I haven't ever heard of Clover Flutes/Whistles so any information is helpful. Some photos would be appreciated. See some of the whistle reviews for the types of images that would be helpful, fipple, beak, window, tone holes, bell end, brand name, etc., images that show the construction. The videos are helpful with hearing the whistle.

And my initial question: Are the whistles already in stock or are the whistles made when ordered?

The whistles are hand made in aluminum.
In his facebook you can see a lot of pictures of his whistles and contact him for further information! :)
Here you have the link to see the pictures.

Hi and welcome! Tasty playing there man.

Those whistles look pretty cool. I wonder if anyone else here has tried them? nice light and full sound going off your videos. I've sent the maker a message on Facebook to enquire as to prices and stuff. I'd really like to try one.

Clover Flutes & Whistles, is he a forum member here on Chiff & Fipple?

I'd love to see him participate in threads as we all can learn from each other. Several whistle makers already participate C&F and their keen insight is always appreciated.

The maker has just replied to me. Looks like D whistles are around £110 ish, plus 30-40 for shipping. From the videos, that doesn't seem too bad for what looks to be a lovley whistle. I wonder if the maker would consider doing a whistle tour. I'd love to try one.
