Unplayably small micro 'recorder' (six inline holes with no R4) at approx. half sopranino length, so theoretically sounding higher than garklein but possibly/probably not at all, and more likely to have popped out of a Christmas cracker or been bought from eBay ('novelty gift or keyring') than intended for any serious purpose?

So you didn't seriously expect it to work, did you?

To be honest - it works! No really, I can play it. I have to add that I have very thin fingers and....well....it's not really fun to play and you are right: It was actually a christmas present and more a joke than a real instrument.

Anyway, I've heard that it has actually been played in real orchestras a few centurys ago to simulate bird chirping. But I won't vouch for that...

nice collection Mark.

I actually found a 12 step program to be helpful :wink:

Seriously, since I started making them myself it, a the very least, slowed me down a bit :)

Cheers!

Hi. This is my first post and I thought I'd share my collection of whistles. I'm new at tin whistles (three weeks) and WhOA Disorder kicked in quickly. I'm primarily a guitar/plectrum banjo/bass player with a root in rock music but an interest in all others. Thanks to my current interest in all things Jethro Tull, I started playing the flute in February and the tin whistle recently. Now I'm listening to all things Irish on YouTube and reading all things Chiff and Fipple.

In my collection I got a brass Generation set from Jerry Freeman and I want to thank him! I can be assured when I squeak and squonk the problem is me. I enjoy the two Clarkes and the Feadog Nickel (All D) whistles as well. I'm sure my collection will grow but for now I have to just learn.

Feadog D - very shrill.
Whaltons Mello D
Whalton's D
Dixon Trad Nickel D - got it on sale for $20. The clare has better sound.
Clarke Original D - Most of the gold paint has worn off.
Clare D- Best of my under $10 Whistles. Cost was $5.
Shaw D- Amazing sound, no tweaking needed.
Whaltons Little Black D
Becker A - Best $10 I ever spent. The plastic sound is not for everyone though.
Becker G " "
Not pictured - Had a Burke a few years ago, but had to sell it.
I'm still looking to buy a used Tilbury in Bb, if anyone has one they no longer play.

Well, it's not big collection, but I don't think it will grow because it is just result of finding "the best one". For me :-) :

Nice whistle case, bdh!

My own modest collection:
Image

Left to right:
- Nickel Gen Bb, void filled with wax.
- Noah Herbison Laughing Whistle, slightly tweaked. Doesn't get played nearly as much as it deserves.
- Acorn D, void filled. My favorite session whistle, easy-playing and penetrating enough to cut through the noise.
- A ... thing ... sold under the Guinness label - maybe by Walton? I hate this one, it sounds bad and isn't in tune with itself. If you squint, you can see the black electrician's tape wrapped around the end, that brought it roughly in tune but didn't do anything for the raspy sound.
- Hall Crystal Flute in G. Neat sound, I like it.
- Boehm flute by Yamaha (Allegro 471 - has a nice big sound, I recommend it)

Not shown:
Two harps, both kit-built from Musicmakers'.
Several more Acorn D's - all lost or given as gifts
Crappy old Boehm flute I used to play
Crappy old guitar I still play
Any of the bamboo flutes I've made (they keep cracking on me, I have an idea to fix it but haven't yet tried it out.)

Here's an update to my ITM instruments. I found a Walton's Little Black Whistle at the Annapolis Irish Festival in July. I've also added two whistles from James Becker, a high D and a low D. When I started playing Irish Music three months ago I wanted to switch to the Irish flute but couldn't justify the cost of a new flute. So I made the PVC flute in the photo (thanks to Doug Tipple for the specs!) It actually plays well (the thickness of the schedule 40 pipe is acceptable for playing around but the wall of the embouchure hole should be thicker.) With the satisfaction of playing the keyless Irish flute and with my wife's blessing, I got a Walt Sweet Shannon flute.

I've been playing the tin whistle for three months now and I'm quite satisfied with my progress. I concentrate more on flute progress currently but play both daily. Blayne Chastain's website is perfect for me. I do plan to get both of Grey Larsen's books and cherish his opinions. Grey's website has free excerpts and I recommend them for all who haven't read them. I enjoy the heck out of reading the whistle, flute and trad music forums here and hope it continues for a long time.

Thanks Chiff and Fipplers!
