Received this Hermit Hill Folk Instruments 'Delrin Tunable High-D’ a few days ago. Alex DeWilde does such excellent work that it needs to be seen. There is a sound bite at his website.

Tell us something.: I am not a spammer. I love penny whistle music and am trying to learn to play it. Also, I love listening to Irish music, currently Irish Music Sessions.

Tell us something.: I can only hope that my proficiency with the whistle is steadily improving. A few of my whistles get a workout on an almost daily basis. And I'm almost certainly afflicted with WhOAD.

That small collection is almost five times the size of mine (I need to do an update)! There are some nice ones in there, too; I'm contemplating the purchase of a Dixon high D in the not-too-distant future.

Well, maybe I was being a bit sarcastic :D Gotta catch 'em all!
I like my Dixon high D but don't play it that much because de cnat oxx ooo is too high, sadly. It's just too much work to think about compensating or halfholing or anything that could make it more in tune. But at that price it is still my favorite.
