Just purchased on evilbay...

...what the hell I bought?

Someone can help me with fingering charts?

Same fingering as any simple-system flute, just plays an octave higher (at least it appears to be in D, and not Bb or F).

Most definitely a "nach Meyer " style Germanic jobbie, missing its crown.

Fingering, as has already been suggested, will be standard simple system. See resources in the Fingering Chart Sticky. Or via the bottom link in my signature.

No-one seems to have mentioned the keyed whistle that comes with the piccolo. Looks nice. Same fingering as for the piccolo and any simple system flute.

That's probably because that is a different, still ongoing auction you're thinking of.

The whistle in that one is pretty battered I think, missing keys, no pads etc.

Oh, sorry. I just followed the link in the OP and that's where it took me.

Confusion hits!

The link in the OP now goes to an auction ended page, you probably went to the link, by the same poster, on the whistle forum?

I didn't think so ... but who knows? I definitely went via here. But anyway, I obviously ended up in the wrong place for some reason. Probably me being stupid. Not to worry.
