It's been a long time since my Killarney was that shiny.

Well, in fairness, it was new and straight out of the post. Have given it a good spin since.

As much as I like shiny objects; I really like how mine is tarnishing up.

It's a lovely thing.

My Killarney D doesn't look nearly as nice. It has a nickel Generation body on it.

So, I put a lot of playing on it. I like whistles to play effortlessly, be responsive and light to the touch, lively, sweet and clear sounding. The Killarney D and E flat tick all, or most of those boxes. I had high expectations of the C. However, this one, I feel, is different. It's more hungry for wind and pressure. It's fine and it looks great (The finish and workmanship on it are a lot better than the D and Eflat I have) but playing it takes an effort where the other two can be played without thinking. Some would look at this as 'professional grade' whistle but to me it makes playing seem too much like work. For my own playing it's more economical, easier and more satisfying to stick with the old Generation C(s) for now (I wouldn't run away from a reasonably priced Sindt C, though).

I regret it, but it will have to go. It's not for me but I am sure it will make someone else happy.

This thread has gone very quiet all of a sudden :D

To lighten the mood, a little sound sample on the early Saturday morning (and it's a bit more wonky than it should have been):
