I have a Carbony G whistle that, like all Carbonys, is in-tune, light, and very well-made. It has two thumbholes (from the maker, Rob Gandara): the lower one for Bb and the higher one for F natural. (Obviously would equate to Fnat / Cnat on a D whistle.) It comes in a tartan drawstring bag, and I haven't played it much.

I'm looking to trade it because it's just not a timbre that I enjoy. I'm into the big fat almost brassy sounds. And it has a more delicate, pure tone. It's pretty much like this example here: https://youtu.be/c0srjFLUjv8

You can see that this configuration with the two thumbholes is $290 USD on Grey Larsen's site, where I got it: https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/car ... d-c-and-b/

I'd like to swap ideally for an MK Pro but open to suggestions on anything else. Keys I'm looking for are low E, G, A, or Bb.

I do also have a Thunderbird A (non-tuneable) by Phil Hardy (this model: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IJXYu-xrpo ). It's nice but I should have got a tuneable one. Also I am into fancy cross-fingerings and it doesn't quite do the Fnat that I like. So am willing to trade that too if you are interested – either together with the Carbony if you have one really nice whistle to trade or two that together make up a similar value.

Basically I am open to suggestions! But UK only I am afraid because I don't really want the fuss of posting internationally. Obviously I'll package the whistle/s well and use sign-on-delivery, and would expect you to do so too.

Additional info: I would also consider an offer for either the Carbony G or the Thunderbird A. Since after all I can trade money for another whistle! But would prefer a direct swap.

Also, for anyone who's worried about the maker-supplied thumbholes on the Carbony, they don't affect playing regularly – you just keep them covered with your thumbs until you need them, and so the whistle uses normal fingering (works well with crossfingering too). But if you didn't ever want to use the thumbholes, you could tape over them.
