Just curious, but why are you buying so many different brands of whistle?
Well, hoopy... I got most of them on ebay at a really decent price. I put in a lot of low bids before I picked any up. I don't know of any whistle players around here to try different brands, so when I could get a different one on a low bid, I took it.
Strange question from a long time member
The reason (I) and I'm sure most other folk buy lots of whistles in various brands is 'cause they're relatively cheap as chips
(depends on where you buy your chips) great for keeping learning to whistle interesting
and the added benefits of familiarizing your ears with different keys
and built in finger conditioning
on larger whistles and finally great way to calm/contain W.H.O.A.D
Ease off, breathe into it.Such a simple statement but so relevant to us beginners.
.. I recently discovered this very technique and I must say it works so well and should be applied by everyone in the beginning stages. So much effort goes into learning/playing a tune it's easy to forget you don't have to deafen yourself to make music
