Just thought I'd share my recent acquisition from Ronaldo (Reyburn of course). Ordered an A/Bb set in brass, took just a couple of weeks to arrive and they play beautifully.

Easy blowing, easy/comfortable reach, good response to articulation and ornaments and great intonation.

Great instrument(s) and great service, what's not to love? Thanks Ronaldo. :thumbsup:

Agreed. Very good service and excellent whistles. His aluminum low D is nothing short of fantastic.

In my experience, I've played quite a few Reyburns, he's the most consistent maker at nailing the tuning.

And his whistles always have a certain special sound, a bit of a NAF thing, that's unique to him.

Got to agree...I have both a brass and an aluminum low D from Ronaldo. I'd be hard pressed to say which Is my favorite. Some tunes seem to sound better on one and some on the other. I could never be without both! :pint:

I got an A/Bb set and had him turn out an additional A tube w/ET .

They're all great. If I could play only one brand I think I could be ok with that-if they were Reyburns.

I've played three Reyburns (used Delrin/brass low D, Hard maple/brass low D, and a used Delrin/brass low F). Each one has been very different from the next. The F has been my favorite, and I've been tempted to buy an alto A or G. The F takes a little more effort to play than some of my other whistles, but it's got such a rich, earthy tone that it's worth it when I can get it right.
