You need to have this lovely people on the list..
It's Flootsie whistle and you find them on Facebook under "FLOOTSIE flute & whistles". Also www.chessspy.com
They get fantastic feedback. They're making whistles of cooper. Also they make very nice leather cases.

Found a reference to Anak bamboo Irish whistles:

Also mentioned here on C&F.

Thanks, WC. The last FB post says: " I don't have a plan to sell the bamboo whistle in the near future. It needs more study." So I think we'll wait and see. - MT

Just going up and down the thread, I notice the Benedict Stewart is missing.
Ben makes superlative whistles in the form of Grinter and beyond.

http://benedictstewartinstruments.com/

I know Ben is gravitated back to the stringed instruments he loves, but he is still exhibiting his whistles.
They are amazing. Specially the lower ones .. the G and lower are perfect. And his high whistles have an upper octave to die for.

There is a dynamic that makes us hide. I understand that. It becomes a choice between service to the money (lower quality) and service to the players (our best).

Ben serves the best.

Thanks, Mitch. Since there are no whistles offered on his website, we'll consider him for inclusion in the "contacts only" list. - MT
All the best!
