WTB LOW D WHISTLES, any and all offers / sales considered, hoping to grow my collection

Also, as always any and all whistles in other keys considered.

Located in the UK, happy to pay for international shipping.

Might help to know what make of whistle you're interested in and what price range. A good low D can range anywhere from $10 to a $1000.

Have you looked at the whistles for sale in the UIE? There are currently three low Ds for sale: A Reyburn, Carbony, and Musique Morneaux.

Any price considered - Max price would be £2000, depending on the whistle.

As for make and Key, and thing considered as i'm not looking for specific whistles. I always keep an eye on the UIE.

Feel free to PM me with anything you might be willing to sell.

:boggle:

I haven't seen a low D sell for more than about $1000 to $1200 (Copeland). What whistles sell for significantly more than that?

Sold a Stirling silver 3 part Copeland for around £2000, beautiful piece, amazing tone. Sold only to fund more instruments (Uilleann pipes)!

I still have this one listed:
Low D Nick Metcalf aluminum tuneable - $160 - Silver Star model with offset holes. Bought new last year from Nick and still in "like new" condition. I hesitate to put this one on here as the tone is so nice and velvety. But a man's gotta know his limitations, and like the last one, I just don't see getting truly comfortable with this one due to my own ergonomic limitations (carpal tunnel, RSI, etc.)

Shipping from U.S.
I have no idea what shipping to U.K. would be but I can find out if you're interested.

P.s. also this one:
Alto G Chieftain Thunderbird aluminum nontuneable - $90 - plays well in tune if you give it the air it wants. This is what I would call a hard blower and I'm more of a medium to low blower.

The Copeland low D (brass) was what I had been thinking of. In other keys, there's a Grinter F on eBay, starting at $950, with a BIN price of $1,250. We don't know if that will sell, or whether bidding could drive it up above the BIN.

There is a Copeland low D (brass) on eBay at the moment (not mine), starting bid $900:

Pretty sure that's formerly active C&F member "whistlegal", not posted since 2010.

For anyone interested in the Grinter low F....I looked at the add thinking it may have been one of mine I sold due to rosewood allergies....the add says the wood is mopane, which is non allergenic. Pretty certain it is cocobolo/rosewood....so if one is prone to wood allergies, this one would not be one to purchase.
