I just received my Killarney C in nickel and couldn't be happier. I have a d in both nickel and brass but it didn't even think of weighing the choice between the c in brass or nickel. I just asked for a whistle. I do love both my d's in brass and nickel. And I am not sure I'd have made a "sound" decision to go with one or the other. The C has got a good mouth feel, scale and the right amount of backpressure, as well as ease in jumping octaves. I am very pleased.

I know that, just wanted to say I enjoyed the sound of it.

I am very happy with my brass whistle. Here's a sample.

I enjoyed both sound samples, but here's the thing with me and the Killarney. I like the way they sound a lot more when others play them. When I am playing them, it just does not sound that good. In fact, listening to my own recording sounds better than when I am actually playing them. I wonder if there is word for this syndrome.

I suppose your getting into the area of psychoacoustics there.

Brian Hughes has posted a nice clip to the Traditional Irish Music Facebook group, if anyone can access that.
I tried to get a link, but the app won’t let me see links. And when I try to go to Facebook via my browser it auto-opens the app. :swear:

Thanks for the advice; as long my playing doesn't sound like a crumhorn, I should be ok, right??
