This is a Mopane wood, tunable with conical bore Low D whistle made by Joseph Morneault from Musique Morneaux (formerly Sweetheart Flute Company, USA).

I asked Jos to add an extra brass ring on the whistle body on the tuning slide instead of the standard only one ring on the fipple.
The craftsman is excellent.

It has a nice tone that is different from an MK or a Chieftain or a Goldie, it has nuances that reminds me a flute.
It is easy to play and fingering.

This whistle does not suit my style of playing, therefore it is brand new and I just played it a couple of times to see I if I could get used to it.

I received the whistle on the 2nd week of September and this is what I have paid:
£599.32 Whistle
£47.09 Shipping
£98.64 Customs
£1.91 PayPal Fee
TOTAL £747.03

I am asking 700£ for this whistle.

Please contact me if you need more pictures or information.
Shipping to UK addresses only.

This whistle is still available.

This whistle is easy to play. It has low air requirements, conical bore, small holes and ergonomic off-set holes. I would say that will suit very well someone with small hands.

This fine whistle is still for sale.
Do you think that I am asking too much?
The whistle is brand new, I just played a couple of times to test it like I would do if I was trying it in a music shop.
What do you think?

Dear whistlers,

This lovely Musique Morneaux whistle was made by Joseph Morneault from Musique Morneaux
(formerly Sweetheart Flute Company, USA) and it is still for sale.

It is a NEW instrument. I just played it in order to test if it could suit my style of playing.

The whistle costed £747.03 (where £145.73 was shipping and customs to the UK).
I am now selling this whistle for £600.

I wish to find a new home for this whistle than having it and not playing as it deserves.
I want to sell the whistle to a new owner that will take great care of it.

- Easy to play/finger
- Fast and Responsive
- Easy upper Second Octave
- Conical bore
- Small holes
- Ergonomic off-set holes
- Tunable
- Mopane wood (Colophospermum Mopane)
- Custom extra brass ring
- Excellent craftsman
- Timbre/Tone that reminds an Irish flute

I asked Jos to add the extra brass ring on the body tuning-slide (instead of the standard one ring only on the fipple).
The whistle craftsman of this whistle is excellent as you would expect from Jos.

The tone of this whistle has those dark reedy nuances that reminds an Irish flute
(so it is different from any MK, Lofgren, Chieftain or Goldie whistles).

I really like this whistle, unfortunately it does not suit my style of playing.
I just played the whistle a couple of times to see if I could get used to it.
Therefore it is a brand new whistle and it is awaiting a new owner since last September.

I can send the whistle to other countries if you help with the shipping costs.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want more details.

Still available.
I will sell the whistle on eBay as well, however I will increase its price to cover the fees.
