Post subject:  One might expect these wooden whistles to be awful ...

I certainly did ... but surprisingly these wooden whistles are good: even usable professionally for many applications. The chap in the photo told me that he makes them himself. And he does an impressive job. They are in tune with themselves, and pretty much in tune on a meter (though some are a tad sharp - at least they were in the sunny part of the world where the picture was taken a few days' ago, though not objectionably so.) I was so happy with them that I bought a couple in D, a couple in C, a handful in Bb and one in Ab. The high F was a bit small for my hands, and I don't have the embouchure for his transverse flutes). Prices are very reasonable, but I had some tough (local) negotiators with me. Anyone want to know more?

PS If someone would be able to host the photo of the bansari-wallah, so folks can see what I'm talking about, please pm me and I'll send you the jpeg gratefully

Thanks to Steve Schulteis for enabling me to show a pic of the whistles ...
