Subject: RE: range of d penny whistle/note problems
I had my father's violin refurbished by a nice Greek chap who makes violins. I went to him because I met and thoroughly liked him and his attitude to life as well as music.

He said when he was a child in the mountains of Greece, he heard the shepherds playing the pipes (flutes) to the sheep, and the tone was so pure and sweet. He tries to make his violins to sound like that sound he still keeps in his head.

The human mind is an amazing gestalt machine.
