I’m selling all of my best whistles at The Irish Flute Store.
On this page I’ll sell seconds that are deeply discounted. I won’t sell whistles that don’t play well, but occasionally (often) a whistle will have a cosmetic flaw such as scratches in the fittings, turning marks on the body, a misshapen tone hole, or a repaired crack. Some have small tuning issues for some players or may need the slide out ~1 cm or more to play in tune.
This is my current stock of seconds:
103 – box and brass – nice player, traditional sound. The slide needs to be out kind of far. $100
124 – box and brass – nice traditional sound, easy player. $125
127 — Burmese blackwood and brass, full rich tone. 125
129 — pau ferro and brass — sweet clear sound. $125
143 — osage orange and aluminum — nice easy player, has a crack near the bottom. That appeared early in the working and has been stable since. $100
130 — Cambodian rosewood and aluminum $100
134 – East Indian rosewood and brass – traditional sound, woody, balanced, a little louder than most. $100
135 – East Indian rosewood and aluminum – traditional sound, loud, takes some push in the upper octave. $50
