Hello there, Masters of the (Whistle) Universe!

We finally decided it's a good moment to let You all know about our Goldfinch Whistle in a form of a World Tour. Back in Poland, we recieved a very positive response from our community, including a couple of great flute and whistle players (Ewelina Grygier from Danar and Witek Kulczycki from Duan) who chose our whistles as their personal sidearms. ;) Check Goldfinch Whistle website (http://www.goldfinch.eu) for recordings made by Ewelina and Witek using our instruments.

We're pretty fresh to Chiff and Fipple and it's our first tour-thing, so we hope we won't cause any unnecessary organizational problems. Here go the rules (I guess there should be some rules, shouldn't they? ;)):

1. Beginning from today till the 30th of April every single whistle fan interested in testing and reviewing our Goldfinch is warmly invited to send an e-mail with his name, adress and contact e-mail adress on whistle-at-goldfinch.eu, so we'll be able to sort them all out and post the queue-list in "geographical" order here.

2. The general idea goes like that: We send whistle to the first person on the list. The person sends us e-mail notifying of it's arrival. The person tests it for time up to more-less one week, contacts the next person on the list by e-mail, gets that person adress, sends the whistle on and informs us about that fact aswell. The last person on the list sends the whistle (or what is left of it ;)) back to us.

Again, to make things simple:
1. Your Goldfinch arrives - write us an e-mail.
2. We send You an e-mail adress of the next person on the list. You contact him/her and get proper location adress.
3. You test the whistle and post a review.
4. After a week (or earlier) You send the whistle to the next person.
5. You send us an e-mail notifying of sending it on.

That way we will be able to track Goldfinches on their way.
(Thank You, Ben, for sharing Your experience!)

3. We'd like to avoid problems and tricksteries, so as the list will be ready, we'll send to participants only proper e-mail adresses of the people who are queued to be next. We simply don't want to distribute somebody's precious personal data. It will be Your task to contact the next person and get the proper adress.

4. Participants are obliged let others know, how they find our whistle! ;)

5. Depending on the number of participants and their location, we may divide this tour into two, getting America Tour and Europe Tour.

6. The only requirement is sending the whistle after and taking care of the Goldfinch Whistle properly during one's testing time. ;)

If you've got any ideas, hints (etc.) - we'll happily consider some innovations to our humble tour project!

We hope that our whistle will be a cheering experience to You!

Waldemar and Jakub Szczygieł,

Never did I heard of such thing as a whistle tour in this way, it seems a great idea to me, and I'll definitely send my details so I can participate. I am a beginner, but still I think I can give my contribute to the tour.

Keep up with what I honestly believe is a good work!

Cheers!

Just a cautionary suggestion - You should probably be sure that *you* have more complete contact info for every participant, including email addy, street addy and contact phone. Most people who participate will be fine, upstanding folk, but even for them, things happen, life interferes, and distractions occur. Better to have a way to track down the whistle, should something bring the tour to a halt.

Sounds like another good tour. I wish I had time to participate. I look forward to hearing what folks have to say about your whistles, and Welcome! to the wild world of whistledom!

The USA and the UK
USA
1. Ben B.

2. Tommy D. (there are some technical problems with contacting You via e-mail, and You probably didn't recieve any return message from us. Please, send me a pm to establish clear contact.)

UK
3. Jem H.

4. Nick P.

5. Derek B.


Europe
1. Nuno V.

2. Gilian H.

3. Christoph S.

4. Safronov V. M.

5. Sergei V.


According to the plan, we'll send You whistles in 2 days!
We wish You merry whistletesting! ;)

Hi!
I am really excited and looking forward to testing the whistle. Looks as if I will have to wait a little, though (No.3).
Best wishes
Chris

He already did! ;)

Tommy - contact established. ;)

Chris - comparing to other whistle tours, where more than ten wait in a single queue, I guess 3# is not a big number! ;)
Cheers!

Finally, the Goldfinches are on their way!

This weekend we will distribute e-mail adresses of the ones who are next to You on the list, so You will be able to acquire their adresses personally. (As I said, we don't want to distribute Your precious personal data.)

Once again, merry Whistletesting! ;) We just can't wait to hear Your opinion about our Goldfinch Whistle!
