I couldn't agree more. Two friends of mine have had a go of mine. One has been a piper since childhood, the other a whistler. They both loved it and at least one of them has ordered one. I bought it to see if there was any way I could play a low whistle and intended it to be a stepping stone to one of the better known brands - I am not going to bother now. I can't imagine that I would like the tone of any other low whistle better than my Dixon. I am toying with the idea of a soprano D now!
