Subject: RE: Tuning an Irish whistle
G'day sorefingers,

Obviously you reap the benefit of a larger market pool ... I wandered unattended into a Canberra music store last week ... and came out with 2 tinwhistles and a cheap "Swannee-whistle" ... Aust$36 lighter in the money pocket.

(OK - Half the money went to a fancy hammertone green paint-job "D" Clarke 'Meg' posing as their "Celtic" tin whistle - plus a Generation high "G" before they disappear from the shelves ... and a "Swannee-whistle" that Trophy may be proud of!)
