Hi all,

I'm looking for decent whistles in Bb and C, particularly a Sindt or an Abell or Similar quality, UK purchase would be easier, send us a PM if your in the selling mood, and have a price in mind.

Thanks sponge

You may know that Jon Sindt is currently making whistles, and his list has shortened considerably. Though import tax may increase your price, his prices are very reasonable. sindtwhistle@aol.com

Cheers busterbill, the vat and duty comes out at 25 percent of the insured value, so a fair bit, and the stress of posting, not so much the usps, but the carrier this end is Parcelforce, or Parcelfarce as they are well known as, say no more, but I could tell a few stories about how bad they are......

but thanks for the info on Jons current production status

I've had good luck on the Used Instrument Exchange here picking up used Sindts, I bought them in D, C, B, Bb, and A for quite reasonable prices, and with no wait.

I see you've posted in the UIE, I hope people are able to come through for you like they did for me.

By the way it was so strange how at the very time I was purchasing a number of used Sindts for good prices people were complaining about the astronomical prices Sindts were going for.

Hi pancelticpiper,

there have been some crazy prices on the Sindt used market of late, but with all things that have a waiting period, sellers can and do ask stupid money,
it's the same with Copelands, I have a silver high D, great whistle, I play it a bit, so when I see them up for sale at $600/$700/$800 plus, I have to laugh :lol: as I couldn't imagine selling mine for that or even consider buying one at those prices, they are nice whistle, but there not $800 nice, my Willy Simmons blackwood D was £300, pricey, but that is the sweetest most beautiful whistle I have ever owned, and Willy no longer makes them, if a Sindt is out there I'm sure it will surface,

all the best Sponge

nb, if you get a chance to play a Willy Simmons whistle, jump at it,
