My new offering finally has a name: The Rambler.

It's a brass and Delrin C/D set, with the bodies joined in the middle, like Clare whistles.

The cloth bag is included, for a cost of C$160, which is only US$120, with the current state of the Canuck Buck.

Very nice! Since I already have a set -- I can highly recommend them. Played it quite a lot today. Keep up the good work. BTW what is the price for the standard narrow bore brass with the thicker tube? Couldn't find it on the homepage.

I bought an O'Brien Rambler C/D set from David, and it instantly became my favorite two whistles.

Over a couple of decades, through uncontrolled acquisition disorder and inheritance from a brother who was a far better player than I will ever be, I've accumulated many whistles, ranging from ten-dollar Sweetones and the like to a Copeland. I'm presently regaining my very low-level whistle skills after a couple minor strokes and years of not playing at all, so factor that into my opinions. This is not Mary Bergin talking to you. Still, I've played on lots of whistles over many years.

The Rambler set (and an O'Brien Rover Delrin set that just landed in my mailbox the other day ... haven't had much chance to play those yet) are, in a word, outstanding in tone and playability. I'm especially partial to high whistles that break down to pocket-size for traveling. The O'Briens, a Jerry Freeman-tweaked Clare two-piece and my Carey Parks Walkabout are my pride and joy.

Looks very nice and tempting if I wasn't currently on the beans and rice program.

A fellow BC lad no less!!
