Hi again everyone. both whistle now SOLD
N01 - just throwing this one out there before uploading pictures, I have Jon Swayne low G in Blackwood i think, from what I have read he uses Boxwood as his main timber,
but also does Blackwood as special order, it's a two part tuneable whistle, brass rings at the joint and brass tuning slide, I've had this whistle for around 8 years, and bought
it from a chap in Hassocks, who, if memory serves bought it from Jon back in 2000, it's in great shape, no cracks, no dings, just the usual faint wear marks you get with real wood,
fipple block is cedar, blade is sharp and still perfect, toneholes are lovely and smooth, and it's a very nice sounding Low G, if there's any interest I'll get some pics up.

N02 - Jon Swayne low D in Boxwood, now this may already be spoken for, as it was on a long term loan to a friend, who might be able to get the cash together, so I can't guarantee
this one will be available, but I will know by early tomorrow.

price, well It's a hard one the Low G that Jon makes, correct me if I'm wrong is around £400 ish not sure if the blackwood commands a higher price being a special order, so i'm asking £250 ono

The low D, well these are £600 plus new so if it's defo for sale £450 ono

I have no idea what the availability of Jon's whistles are these days, but i'm sure there is wait, I know he concentrates mainly on his pipe making, so these two whistle are fairly rare as used
sale item, and you won't see one everyday.

send a PM or e-mail

pics of low G below

Sponge :)
