Nice start. :D

One of Susan's PhD supervisors bought a second house just to keep his books in. I understand Blackhawk had to by a second house just to keep his whistles in!

Gregory, how long did you say you've been whistling? I think you might have officially taken whistle obsession to a whole new level! :lol:

Seriously, that's a nice-looking collection. Looks like you're having lots of fun.

From left to right...
1. Alba Alto G, This was an added bonus when I won the Q1 whistle from Alba/Stacey.
2. Dixon alto A. this is tunable and is an awesome ez playing whistle one of my fav's.
3. Bb Hoover Whitecap praise whistle made espeically by our own Mack. I love this whistle.
4. JudyK C whistle, Another special whistle on loan from and made by JudyK because mine got lost and she is a sweetie to loan it to me until she can make me another one. I play it just about every day. The one I lost was a gift from Judy.
5. Mack's special Katrina Hoover D whistle. It was a gift whistle too.
6. Alba Q1 My most played whistle of all. Won this in a contest.
7. Copper Parkhurst D Quiet whistle. Gift from my daughter and my first "real/Handmade" whistle.
8. Black Diamond D (Syn whistle, I think?)
9. Syn D from Austrailia
10. Serpent Trio Brass set C,D, Eb. The etching is vines and dragonflies and bugs. I won the set in a contest.
11. Walton D
12. Doolin D
13. Feadog D
14. Generation D
15-17. 3 Woodstock Clarke C's Ihad 3 D's but put them in some Katrina care packages. Bought these at a farm supply store for less than $3.00 each.
18-20. Clarke Meg Gold, Silver, Black D's
21. Clark original D
22. Clark original C
23. One of those cheap Cooperman tin whistles with a huge icky unfinished fipple woodblock. It plays great with alot of chiff. Bought for $6.00 at a civil war tourist place.
24. Palantivo Tin Whistle. The guy at the little music store where I bought it said that it was ordered from a school supply instrument place. It isn't much of a whistle. I have never heard of these before.
25. I haven't got a clue what this is, My friend bought it at a craft festival. It has one hole on the back and it only plays when the humidity is high.
26. A Tabor pipe I won on C&F from Beth"Aventria", I never could spell her user name). Her cat picked the winner :lol: I still can't play it and drum on something at the same time.
27. Angel Recorder my daughter gave to me. It's still a mystery to me.
28. A "G" Nickle fife that I won in a contest when IDAwHOa moved and needed help choosing his new user name on PWA. By the way, Where is he. He hasn't posted in a long time.
29. :P A Nose Flute I got at a dulcimer festival a couple of years ago.

:lol: I was wondering if anyone would comment on it. I haven't gotten a whole song out of it yet. I run out of air after a couple of toots. I am going to sit down with it for a while one of these days and really try to get something resembling a song out of it. If I ever do, I will try to record it and post it. :P

I think it would be neat if everyone would post a picture of their whistles. Greg has some interesting looking ones in his picture.

I have been whistling for 1 month today:) Actually there was a guy on chiff and fipple selling a 21 whistle collection for 50 and I snatched them up. I gave one to my boy and one has finger holes so far apart I need a map to find the holes. Some of his are made and others are manufactured. Only 5 out of all these need a little "tweaking" which I knew when I bought them. I wanted to see if I could get some of them tweaked. Thanks for your response.

Yes, I will eventually have me playing them all on you tube...

Those are from Peru. They sound almost like recorders but look kind of neat:)

What other board? I am about to experiment with some thin brass material for making my whistles. I will let you all know how that turns out and post some pics here when I get them going.

Greg and Kathy, those are great collections. I don't have a whole lot in mine--not worth showing anyway--but enough that I can scatter them around the house and car--to ensure I seize those opportune moments to get a few minutes in.

Did either of you do the decorations on any of your whistles? They look great! What a great way to personalize your whistles!

Here are 80 plus whistly things. There are a few others scattered about the house plus Susan will have some in her rucksack up in the village. We have about another 60 in the UK. A new whistle should arrive here today. We did not include saxophones and clarinets.

I like your collection but I can't identify more than half. Please could you give a list from left to right. Thanks.

Gregory
Could you do the same please? I'd love to know what they all are.

No, you'll need about 400 fotos!

Wow, Adrian!

Do you know that if you took all your whistles and laid them down end to end....................................................that would be a really long line of whistles! (that's as profound as I'm gonna get today)

What, not organized by color?

Or is that colour?

:mrgreen:

A wonderful collection, Adrian, especially since they are used to praise the Maker. :thumbsup:
