Hello everyone!
My name is Tonie and I'm from Sweden. I began learning how to play the tin whistle a couple of months ago and has fallen in love with the instrument and the music it was made to play. Since I like to do things with my hands the step to make my own whistles wasn't far away. I studied the clark original I bought and searched the internet for information. Started with plastic tubes and moved on to aluminium and copper. I use the calculator on music.bracker.uk but find it difficult to get everything right so the whistle doesn't sound false.
My first question is (I have a lot more ;-) : Accourding to a page I found on how to make whistles, the tuning in the first octave should be -10 c. That would make the second octave sound more in tune with the first. My whistles still tends to sound a bit sharp on the second octave and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you! I've read his troubleshooting before and tried most of the tips. I'll read them again and see if I missed something.
