Hi all, I know rare weird key, but I'm after a high F, I have an old brass one with lead / pewter fipple block, which I have reworked in cedar, so no poisoning issues, but due to its age the blade is mullered, or those not from the UK, it's blunted and has serious cuts and gouges with won't or can't be reworked, so if you have a decent high F and want to sell let me know, I have a budget of £300 ish

Cheers Sponge,

This will likely sound daft to you, but, have you tried the Generations, I quite like mine, although I don't really like anything higher than a 'C' normally, it just seems to play without hassle. :)

Hi fatmac,

I was looking for something a bit more refined for recording with, just seen Susato do a high F, I have a Susato high D, which is very different sounding than most high D whistles, or I should say
more of a distinctive sound, so maybe that would fit and save me some money over a custom wooden one, I know Chris Abell does a blackwood high F, which was the sort of thing I was after, as wood tends
to be a little more mellowing.

thanks for the suggestion though

I don't know how they'd be for recording, but since you've already shown an interest in the more elderly whistles, I've a couple elderly whistles in f, one in litho'd tin with wood block and another in tin with metal mouthpiece.

PM me if either strikes your fancy.

No problem, I know some people would just disregard them because they're cheap. :thumbsup:
