So I have an amazing Low G made by Chris Abell, but, that is as low as he goes. So who could I get beautiful Low F and Low D whistles made out of ABW or similar from?

Thanks!

Jon Swayne, if you can wait out his list.... Check here for a video of Jemtheflute playing one.

Best wishes.

Steve

Nigel Richards at Garvie makes a fine low D: it's a beautiful instrument, See http://www.garviebagpipes.co.uk/info/wh ... istle.html

As the owner of a ABW Bleazey low D, I would say Bleazey.

I don't know if it fits your criteria, as the body is brass, but the irish flute store has a low f Reyburn for sale with a maple head. http://www.irishflutestore.com/reyburn- ... t?___SID=U

I have a Sweetheart Resonance that I love. It's an older model, but I'd imagine the newer ones are at least as good if not better.

Thanks for all the replies! Has anyone played an Aschenbrenner whistle from Austria?

[Thread revival - Mod]

Hello everyone! After checking out all of your wonderful suggestions, I wound up ordering Low D and Low F whistles in mopane from Peter Aschenbrenner. WOW! I am so glad I did! The warm of the tone and the quality of both instruments is more than I could have hoped for. They are just beautiful! They only problem now is that I want everything he makes :-)

Peter is also a great guy, even sent me a couple messages during the Santa Barbara fires a month or so ago to check in and see if I was ok.

Please do check out his instruments - http://www.pa-music.com/en/instrument-m ... les/detail
