Hi everybody.

I've been getting some great feedback from my new wooden whistles.
The general feedback is that they have good lower octave volume and strong tone while the second octave is still a pinch louder but the wood body has a mellowing effect on the very high notes.
It was my intention to create such an instrument so I'm glad that others have found these traits to be present too.
Here's a few clips to enjoy.

So, for the next 10 customers I get I'll include a complementary "Wissel" which is a little flute shaped pendant/brooch that I make too.

I will say, as of today, I have a 2 week wait on these wooden whistles but I have a 2/3 day turnaround on my regular D whistles.

And, about a 3 week wait for the new A whistle

Also, please forgive the rustic recordings but I wanted them to be as honest as possible so I recorded the clips in my workshop with my phone.

All feedback and questions are welcome and thanks for listening!!

Tommy

Hi Tommy,

Sorry to be posting a reply that is completely irrelevant to the post here.

I made a purchase of low D whistle and a low G whistle from you a few weeks ago. Our communications seem to have ceased a day after payment has been made - that is I never did receive a notification if the whistles were dispatched. I tried sending emails to your gmail account but failed to get a reply.

I have yet to receive the whistles so am wondering if you have any tracking info about them and when I should expect a delivery.

Thank you and apologies again for posting here!

Hi Tommy,

Can you at least give me a tracking number so that I know that the whistles have been sent?
Otherwise I will have to request a refund on the purchase. Sorry for this but it has been quite a long wait and communication hasn't been great.

Yours faithfully,


Edit: Tommy just told me that the delivery was interrupted by a local strike but he managed to retrieve the parcel. He just posted it again. Hopefully everything (low D, low G, and a F body) with arrive soon.

Thanks joshuaZ for posting an update.
I apologize for the delay with your delivery.
I'm sorry I'm not a frequent internet user but I'd hope patience would ensue.

All the best

Tommy

Whistles have arrived in really quick time now that the strike issue has been sorted.

I have unrealistic expectations of the whistles and requested a rather unreasonable return, but Mr. Martin has graciously accepted this return without any problem.

Thought I did not keep the whistles, I believe Mr. Martin is a really trustworthy seller. Thank you to all who have been keeping track of this and giving me advice!
