With the renewed interest in low whistles, the extended quarantine, and a surfeit of ideas, I thought I would offer my Sweetheart/Musique Morneaux low D rosewood up for a tour. I am rightly biased, but maybe I'm biased because I'm right, and this low D is really amazing. I have or have tried most low Ds up until a few years ago, and found them to be hard to play, lung-sucking, and heavy. Musique Morneaux's is the only one I found to be a pleasure to play rather than adequate.

I was explaining to Tyghre what a whistle tour was, and said it was just passing around your instrument to strangers. Just like a virus. Oookay, let's table that idea for a while.



Yours in isolation...

I had the impression whistletours were a bit of a thing of the past but I haven't been following these things all too closely.


Sending around a whistle around at the height of a pandemic that depends on droplets and the virus sitting on surfaces for its transmission, sanitise all you want but I'd have my doubts about the wisdom of that. :boggle:

Seconded.

Speaking with my Admin hat on, ChiffCo® officially and strenuously discourages whistle tours at a time like this. Don't do it.

Oh, I tabled it as soon as I thought about it. Please don't think I was suggesting it!
I shared because I was thinking how undo-able it was and I take my amusement as I can find it nowadays.

:poke:

Never mind.

No worries; that was evident from the start.

I hated to be a wet blanket, but in my position I'm called to err on the side of an abundance of caution.
