He has been mentioned elsewhere, favourably.

Probably not included, because AFAIK, does not meet the following requirement (this thread, message #2 by moderator MTGuru):
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.

Tell us something.: Oh, I didn’t realise this text was public, so I should write something that isn’t nonsense.

I’m on this forum because I like playing various instruments. Cittern, flute, whistles, recorder, jaw harp, mandolin, mandola, waldzither, etc.

One maker (who I have no experience with) who was mentioned in another post is Chris Backhouse. Here is all the information I could gather from his website. I am not sure of his location, but, given the form of currency available in his price list, I believe he is in the UK.

Just in case anybody is going to do some maintenance/updating on this listing, this maker was mentioned on the forum a few times:

Chris Backhouse whistles

Also note Jackie Proux listed above has died. Something which doesn't seem to have been mentioned on the forum at all but see here.

That explains why the website looked vaguely familiar. But it also shows the list isn't much good without maintenance.

Tell us something.: I'm a fiddler and, latterly, a fluter. I love the flute. I wish I'd always played it. I love the whistle as well. I'm blessed in having really lovely instruments for all of my musical interests.
