Guilty. When I had a Sindt D I played it with a Generation tube. Set aside the original tube for when I sold it.

Same with my older Killarney, the original body had clearly been chopped at the bottom after manufacture resulting in the bellnote and its octave being too sharp. Once again a nice old Generation body did the trick (though this time it was a nickel-for-nickel swap).

When I say "scratched" it would probably be more accurate to say "hand engraved"

I agree that hand engraved is a better terminology.

Yes, the flush pin is a tell tail sign for JS whistles. I am surprised that no one has modified a Killarney whistle by grinding the pin flush and hand engraving JS. Killarney is the first whistle that comes to mind without any markings.
