Thread Name: Three Hole Pipes
Subject: RE: Three Hole Pipes
After a seemingly fruitless, long search for one of these, I have finally managed to get hold of a genuine Basque txistu. I already had the largest plastic txistu poxpolin which is sold by Susato in the USA, so I can already play the txistu, but I must admit that the real thing is somewhat easier to play, being heavier and less inclined to move in my fingers. I had already attached a txistu ring to my poxpolin, to enable bell-stopping. It's now a matter of lots of practice to improve expertise. Lovely sound. Mine's in F#, though. The seller didn't know, or didn't think to mention the key.
