You're well on your way!

It's too late for you now, but you'll soon enough learn that whistles are a lot like pringles. You just can't have one!

I find it amazing the huge difference between the various 15 or so whistles I have- different materials, brands/makers, keys/sizes... All the combinations of factors make for such a broad range of tone, playability, volume, fingering techniques...
Even as a beginner, it's great inspiring to have choices when reaching for a whistle when i'm in the mood to play a tune. :D

The demise of Photobucket as a useful free hosting site means all snaps I posted before have now gone.

Here's a new one, the new hosting site will keep it for a month. Four Generations, the older generations or over forties if you like. I just picked up the C on the right. It's a smaller diameter than their present ones, the same as their present D. It's a relatively quiet but lovely balanced whistle.

I only have two whistles. I made them though well part of them the mouthpiece is from a Walton's little black whistle. They both have a gold ring around them and play pretty much like that same whistle! Made of pvc almost in tune. But good enough for me because I just solo.

Those are fine looking whistles. I wish I could hear them.

Hey all newbie to the forum!
Here are my current whistles!
On the Back rack its a Susato Low F and Low A as well as a Yamaha Fife in C
Front rack has a Clarke Original in C, Clark Celtic in D, Walton Little Black Whistle in D and a Susato Kildare D

Nothing too fancy yet, but hopefully I can rectify that soon!

Welcome TD997.

I can't find the image of your whistles. Have you posted it to an image-sharing website?

Oops I messed up. I posted via Imgur, but the picture ended up too big and messed with the format of the thread so I edited it to make it smaller, though in my haste it seems that I put the wrong URL in. I'll edit that now.

You already have quite a nice collection! The rack holding your C and D whistles is what really caught my eye, though. Is it made for whistles, or did it originally hold something else?

Its actually a Pen holder! I purchased it on ebay, and it came with a pack of 2, each pack containing one horizontal stand and one vertical, for a total of 4 stands. Not too shabby for $10. The whistles fit perfectly in the horizontal stand, but the dimples in the vertical stand arent deep enough to hold the whistles in place. In order to get them to stay, I put pencils in the stands, then slid the whistles through them so that the pencils will catch onto the dimples. Only problem is that pulling a whistle off the stand occasionally causes all of them to slide off! I'm thinking about using glue to keep the pencils (or other cylindrical guides that I can find) in place to prevent that from happening in the future.

Those will be great when I acquire more whistles. I've put them in my eBay watch list. Thanks!
