As I've mentioned I've played hundreds of Bb Generations over the last 40+ years and never found that magical great one to buy.

Yes other players have had fantastic ones but they were absolutely NFS.

Until I got a Jerry Freeman Generation Bb which is amazing.

So with Generations, perhaps especially vintage Generations, you never know, and by tremendous luck you could end up with a world-class Bb whistle, one that will outplay any Bb at any price.

I just picked up a box of around 30 old Generations in various keys for $30. Who knows what might be in there?


This Bb probably isn't a good one but I simply don't have the ear to know better at this point. I have no idea of the vintage but it definitely needed some maintenance. That being said, I have more than gotten my $6.00 worth out of this whistle. I would love to play a good one some day for comparison.

Nice score on the whistle box btw

As far as a capo goes - if you put the capo on the third fret then the form used for G (with no capo) becomes Bb, C becomes Eb and D becomes F, etc.
