By popular demand, we present the *NEW* Chiff & Fipple WhistleMakers Directory, or WMD. And unlike other WMDs, you don't have to go hunting for it in hidden bunkers. It's right here in a Sticky thread.

Maker entries are listed alphabetically by uppercase keyword, and the format of each entry should be self-evident. You can use your browser's search function (e.g. Control-F) to search for details in the list.

Criteria for inclusion in this web directory are simple. The maker must 1. Be currently active producing whistles for sale and/or taking orders; 2. Have a web or internet presence to link to. The linked resource should include contact information at minimum, and preferably a description of the instruments offered, prices, availability etc. as well. The linked resource should also be open and world-viewable without special passwords or accounts (Chiffboard profiles excepted).

If a maker does not have a website to link to, his/her C&F Profile page may be used instead. Any maker is welcome to register a Chiffboard account for this purpose. And all makers are encouraged to make sure that their Profile pages are accurate and up to date.

At our discretion, we may also include makers without a web presence or Profile, substituting an e-mail link or other traditional contact information.

In cases where there is a question about the suitability of a maker and/or a maker's products for inclusion, the judgment of Dale and the Mods will be final.

Keywords marked with an asterisk (*) indicate active makers who may not be offering whistles in their product line at this time. Please contact the individual maker to inquire about availability.

UPDATES AND MAINTENANCE

We are going to rely on you, the Chiffboard community, to help us keep this WMD accurate and up to date.

To alert us to any changes, corrections, additions, or deletions, simply post your information to the end of the thread. We will evaluate all posts and incorporate these updates into the main list as appropriate.

To suggest a new maker, a complete entry in the standard format will be most helpful.

A note at the bottom of the list will always indicate the date of last update, and the count of maker entries listed.

Important: Posts to this thread should be limited to specific update and maintenance information only, not general discussion of makers and/or their products. That is what the forums are for. Any posts or parts of posts that violate this guideline will be deleted without warning.

I didn't see Olivier Bouchard on the list: https://twitter.com/olirish & https://sites.google.com/site/obwhistles/. Francais seulement, but a nice whistle all the same!

Schylling (makers of many reproduction tin toys) also make / distribute a tin whistle: http://www.schylling.com/p/tin-whistle

Also didn't see Howard on the list: http://www.howardmusic.co.uk/welcome.htm

or Cooperman: http://www.cooperman.com

By the way, thanks much for putting this list together!

Found this via Lark in the Morning: Blackwood Whistles by Gal Hiltch: http://www.blackwoodwhistles.com

Thanks, whistlecollector. WIll investigate all these. - Mod

Another resource to check out:

http://www.dmoz.org/Arts/Music/Instruments/Winds/Tin_Whistle/Makers/

Yes, Mr. Gumby already mentioned that above. - MT

I see several makers not on the Chiffco list: Alban Faust (some nice looking wooden whistles); the Flute Maker; Keltic Dead (copper whistles -- I couldn't access the site, cos it was being blocked by the workplace gestappo); Open Whistle (has an email address).

Thanks, will check these out when integrating the DMOZ list. - MT

Silkstone & Tully (apparently not taking orders for the last few years).

Right, looks like neither is currently active. - MT

DMOZ says that M&E also makes a whistle, but I can't find one on the web site.

Neither can I. :-) - MT

I don't know about whistle carry cases & bags, but Hackie Packs makes nice looking whistle cases (not taking orders at present, though); Sassafrass also makes rolls.

At this point we're not planning to include makers of whistle cases and other accessories in the directory. - MT
