... it’s a sunny, quiet day here at the farm. Chores are done. The things that are broken can wait another day. It’s not often that I get the chance to spend an entire afternoon playing my whistles. Today has been one of those days.

I grabbed my whistle bag and plopped down at the table for a bit of tooting. Now, a couple hours later, I find that I need to say thank you to Carey Parks for his amazing Bb walk about, and to George Kelichek for his equally amazing Small bore Kildare Bb. Both are simply wonderful, and have given me a wonderful afternoon.

Gentlemen, thank you.

What you say is very true. Most nights, I wind down by playing various whistles and feel thankful at how nice they are at such a relatively low price. Even my expensive Burke is a steal compared to a lot of brass instruments, and the mid-priced Freemans are incredibly beautiful. I'm sure many of us feel the same way about the various brands. Too, there is the $12 Generation Bb that is quite amazing. Many of you have older whistles from the 80s and 70s that just can't be replaced.

:thumbsup: IMO Parks whistles are underrated. I have the "Ghost" and it is just lovely. Best plastic whistle I played so far. I wonder why I don't see them being played more often.
