Very nice! How do you like the aluminium one? Because it is definitely on my wish list.

More old Generation stuff:

Note how the most recent F (late 1940s) is slightly longer than the previous ones

a blow up of part of the above, labels changing over time (resisting punning on 'generations' there)

I have a single whistle that I treasure. I try to play it every day ….. each time I do it makes me smile :)

Handmade in copper.

Thanks. I’m afraid that I made just the one for myself. It went through a number of manifestations before I got the balance and tuning right though!
If you want info on how it’s built then please ask .... no problem. It’s pretty straightforward.
Currently working on a low D.

Rather than photos of my collection, here's a video of me playing everything in my whistle roll:
