True, one can tape over half the holes of a pw. But if one is a right handed drummer (as most tabor players are), it still remains a challenge to change over to the left hand to finger all notes of a tune with 3 digits of the left hand, and then go back to two hands for PW. Aside from where the 3rd hole is located, switching back and forth just messes with my head too much at this early stage of my learning, whether using the 'real' tabor pipe or a pw with holes taped over. :boggle:

Any chance of seeing a picture of the contraption?


I will have a go in the morning and add it to this post. It looks like a sort of key but I am not sure it is supposed to do anything or is just a way of finishing that end of things, the bottom of the windway and the back are one and the same strip of metal, folded back. You can move the alignment of the windway with it anyway, whether that was meant to be or not.



Wow! That's pretty ... er ... neat??

Doesn't look at all comfortable to hold in the lips, though. That high rounded beak plus the mechanism of the "key" itself just looks like six different ways of difficult.

I agree about it looking like the maker hadn't finished --- no flattening of the blade, so no splitting of the airstream.

I'm going to hazard the guess that the maker was trying for a contraption where he could widen & narrow the airway; or adjust its direction towards the blade. Would be neat to examine and experiment on that whistle, though!

I think I have seen one of these posted here in the past. It's small-ish, in E and marked 'foreign', for the British market I suppose.

Yep. One of the many Japanese or German made whistles. Many seem to be post-war.

A lot like the yellow whistle in the second picture. Also in E.

Yes, it's a Dixon brass "Trad" in C. It actually needs too much air pushing for little ol' me.. I'll likely wind up selling it.

I have a modest collection of
SYN whistles
Bb
C
D
Eb
Susato V
C
D
Eb
Aulos Recorders
Sopranino-tenor
Moek Bass and Sub-Basse
Three or Four french horns (What I play professionally, and its a pipe...)
Set of Gibson fireside pipes in D
McCallum AB4DFA Highland set

ALWAYS NEED MORE PIPES... I might start building soon. I built brass instruments for years, and now I sharpen cutlery. I might start producing semi-precious metal tubes for unique sonorities. Sterling and Gold plated nickel rods and such.
