The demise of Photobucket as a useful free hosting site means all snaps I posted before have now gone.

Here's a new one, the new hosting site will keep it for a month. Four Generations, the older generations or over forties if you like. I just picked up the C on the right. It's a smaller diameter than their present ones, the same as their present D. It's a relatively quiet but lovely balanced whistle.

I only have two whistles. I made them though well part of them the mouthpiece is from a Walton's little black whistle. They both have a gold ring around them and play pretty much like that same whistle! Made of pvc almost in tune. But good enough for me because I just solo.

Those are fine looking whistles. I wish I could hear them.

Hey all newbie to the forum!
Here are my current whistles!
On the Back rack its a Susato Low F and Low A as well as a Yamaha Fife in C
Front rack has a Clarke Original in C, Clark Celtic in D, Walton Little Black Whistle in D and a Susato Kildare D

Nothing too fancy yet, but hopefully I can rectify that soon!

Welcome TD997.

I can't find the image of your whistles. Have you posted it to an image-sharing website?

Oops I messed up. I posted via Imgur, but the picture ended up too big and messed with the format of the thread so I edited it to make it smaller, though in my haste it seems that I put the wrong URL in. I'll edit that now.

You already have quite a nice collection! The rack holding your C and D whistles is what really caught my eye, though. Is it made for whistles, or did it originally hold something else?

Its actually a Pen holder! I purchased it on ebay, and it came with a pack of 2, each pack containing one horizontal stand and one vertical, for a total of 4 stands. Not too shabby for $10. The whistles fit perfectly in the horizontal stand, but the dimples in the vertical stand arent deep enough to hold the whistles in place. In order to get them to stay, I put pencils in the stands, then slid the whistles through them so that the pencils will catch onto the dimples. Only problem is that pulling a whistle off the stand occasionally causes all of them to slide off! I'm thinking about using glue to keep the pencils (or other cylindrical guides that I can find) in place to prevent that from happening in the future.

Those will be great when I acquire more whistles. I've put them in my eBay watch list. Thanks!

Hello all!

I'm a newbie whistler, started just this month on the Walton's and have since also bought the Clarke Celtic, which I prefer. I bought the Clarke because it's quieter, as I live in a small apartment and have a little dog who refuses to leave my side, even when I'm making shrill, squeaky mistakes. The Celtic is also more "forgiving" in that it's not nearly as deafening when I accidentally have air leak through one of the holes. I've started the video lessons from OAIM and have become slightly obsessed with my whistles (and traditional Irish tunes in general, I must admit).

Anyways though I know these are both common beginner whistles and you've all seen them before (and likely own them!), here are my whistles:

Welcome to the forum and that's a good start on whistles. Enjoy your playing.

I like that Clarke Celtic...that will be my next whistle unless I find a screaming deal on a different one!

And, to mark my 100th post, here are my two whistles:

The one on top is a Walton's Irish D, and the green one is a Feadóg Original. Both are soprano D whistles. The Feadóg has been my go-to whistle as of late, but the Walton's still gets semi-regular playing time, too.
