Post subject:  Sindt Whistle Waiting Times

I recently bought a Sindt C (lovely whistle by the way) and received it in about a week. I think the long wait list has considerably shrunk. If you we thinking about the Sindt, it may be a good time. They are great whistles.

Yup... similar experience. Ordered Bb + B + C + D in July and they were delivered in September. Followed up in October with a C# to "fill the gap" in the set and it's arrived already.

5 whistles (Bb/B/C/C#/D) covers all keys within one sharp/flat of a whistle in the bag. I am not expecting the C# to see a lot of action :-)

JS's whistles are as sweet as ever and I'm thrilled to have a set that I never expected to be able to assemble. Beats the uncertainty of eBay auction prices ($250-350 typical) and unknown provenance/condition.

Just out of curiosity, what is the cost of a Sindt direct from the maker these days?

Best wishes.

$180 + $20 shipping CONUSA is a reasonable guide.

I too had understood that supply was very restricted and waiting times lengthy for perhaps as long as the past 10 years or so.

Oooh, I have a C# Burke. If we ever rock up in the same pub we can have a few tunes - just the two of us :)

I've been waiting at least five years for mine.

I received my "D" from John exactly one month after I ordered it.

That was in 1999, almost 21 years ago, and the price was $60, plus $3 shipping, for a whopping $63.00 total.

:D

Maybe time to give John a shout just to be sure you didn't accidentally get lost from the list? Five years seems rather long, even when his list was way backed up.

Best wishes.

I second this. I would definitely reach out.

I guess I will. My wife placed the order and has been communicating with John. Her last email from him was July 2018, and he said it was still a year and a half out at that time, which coincidentally would be this December, which starts tomorrow. Maybe they will show up soon! I have not been bothered, as I still really like the Generations I have had for 43 years.

Also, to be fair to John, she first ordered them in 2016, so I have only been waiting 3-4 years, not 5 years as I previously said. :oops: Mea culpa - my memory is not what it once was.

Actually, it is sindtwhistle@aol.com


I accidentally added the plural. It is a good thing I am not an accountant :D If I do this with letters, I am sure I'd be a nightmare with numbers.
