Came across an interesting beast today - a seven hole whistle called the D7 by Merlin. 6 normal holes with a 7th little-finger hole for a C (C#?). Sounded like shite (certainly for the price - £57) but a nice idea I could get used to on better sounding instrument.

Anyone play one? Thoughts?

Read all about it HERE

One wonders how easy it would be to modify a Generation C to such a thing...

I dont have Huge hands , but I can part cover the bottom of a D whistle to get a note below the Bottom D - Not so easy with a C though

I once asked Bernard Overton if he could make me a whistle like that, but in A with a little finger low G (for playing Highland pipe tunes). His response was to send me a scrutty little price list for his standard products. So I got a G alto recorder instead.
