Thread Name: WHISTLE Recommendations?
Subject: RE: WHISTLE Recommendations?
Thanks for the nice comments jimmyt - I personally do not like buying ANY instrument without trying it first , so buying on the Net is NOT my first choice . Especially as whistles from the same maker can vary enormously in both tone AND volume , regardless of price . As to the problem with Generation whistles being out of tune , Hot water will dissolve the glue on the mouthpiece , making them tunable , though I
still think their Quality Control as far as the way the mouthpieces work leaves a lot to be desired . I once went through a sops entire stock of generations and did NOT make myself at all popular by telling the Shop Owner that they were all crap and should be returned for replacement .
