Hi all pleased to make your acquaintances, I'm new to tin whistles coming from an ocarina background and am wondering if anyone has ever tried Goldfinch's AiryTale whistle? I'm looking to get a mid-tier high D whistle and I kinda liked the sound of the AiryTale, you can see and hear them on their website: http://www.goldfinch.eu/high-whistles/ Their normal high D whistle sounds good to me as well. I wanted to find reviews and opinions but they seem to be few and far to come by.

I'm also leaning towards either a Chris Wall or Freeman, anyone have a preference or other suggestion? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Here is a link to an older thread about Goldfinch whistles. Enjoy your whistling.

Mr. Gumby: Thank you for the tip, I've edited it now.
ytliek: Thank you for the link, it was nice to learn Goldfinch is a father/son operation. The video of Marcin Ruminski playing was very lovely to hear as well, very pure, clean with a subtle airiness, and not squeakiness at all jumping to higher octaves.

Still, I'd love to hear other people's personal experience with these, I wonder if the father/son team would consider sending a review whistle to a YouTube reviewer, like CutiePie or whistletutor. And I'm still also considering the Freeman and Chris Wall whistles, so many options but honestly they all seem like fine choices.

I really like my Airy Tale. Well crafted and a very good price. An hour or so ago I purchased my second whistle from Goldfinch, a Low C. There are some YT reviews which you may like.

I am also interested in the airy tale. How does it compare to other whistles in volume? I prefer my whistles on the quiet side.

@Fledge - The idea of a YT review is a good one. It may be worth forwarding to Goldfinch.

@Sedi - Volume may be a difficult thing to quantify accurately. I'd say the Airy Tale is mid range. It is certainly quitter than Susato or whistles deemed "session bore." I have a small home and I'm quite comfortable playing the Airy in my living room. I'd be surprised if you'd find this whistle too loud.

@Sedi - I'll add this. I recently received a Bb from Becker whistles. It has a fairly large bore but is still surprising quiet. I suspect his other whistles are the same.

Thanks Michael for the valuable info! Might have to pull the trigger on one of those. The standard model sounds great in videos on YT. I found this one (one heck of a player--he could probably sound good on anything)--but that is the normal version, not the "airy tale".
