So perhaps they source their whistle wholesale from one of the bigger makers, and then put it on their own cardstock backing.

Tell us something.: I like tin whistles. I'm really bad at playing them, but I don't let that stop me. I like to play a low A whistle -- I figure, that way nobody expects me to be able to play fast!

Speaking of which, I've started putting them up for sale, sort of. Not sure what the market for elaborate whistles is like, but I've sold some of the little ones.

Beautiful, that 'carved lacquer' effect!
Coincidentally, I just bought some lipstick in that color a few hours ago. :waah:

Two new Eb Granadillo whistles from MusicMorneaux in May 2019. I like wood.

(both the same whistle key except variance in wood color and the camera distortion / perspective)
