So is this an old picture or did you get another Abell? I thought you'd sold it. :-k

Just took this picture today, Keith. I bought another Abell D -- this one with a C natural hole. It felt like I was meant to buy it when tommyk on the Chiff offered it for sale at the same price I sold my old one. The Abell, Busman, Hudson, Weston, Humphrey & Parkhurst have all been added this year. "Pre-owned" whistles are gonna be my choice for buying, I think.

A photo of the string collection? :-k ... that may take me a day or so to set up, Adrian, but I'll see. :)

Some of you have some impressing collections!! Mine is not too large yet, even if it was doubled when my husband moved in with his whistles (he doesn't play anymore, but tried it when he lived in Ireland and after).

Image

From left to right:
Clarke D
Generation Eb
Clarke Sweetone "Celtic" D (has a little celtic knot on it)
Clare D
Clarke Sweetone D
Generation F
Clarke C
Walton Little Black D
Dixon Trad Nickel D (just arrived!!!)
Dixon Soprano E 2 piece tunable (just arrived too!!)


One is missing, my first one, a Feadog nickel D that I bought in Ireland when i lived there, I bought it in a very nice music shop in Killarney. I've lent it to a friend.

That's a nice collection. Or maybe a good start .... :D

The Dixon Trad is a great whistle. It has the traditonal sound, but still with Dixon's clearer tones. I had one but gave it to a friend who was interested -- need to replace it some day.

What's funny about this, to me, is that I recognize many in these collections that used to be mine. It's funny how the whistles get around.

Well, Blackhawk, you are just a tad more obsessed about acquiring and subsequently selling whistles than the average WhOA sufferer. :mrgreen: I ain't the whistles, dude, it's YOU! :laughing:

Nice collection. Did any of them once belong to Blackhawk?

I see you lack a Generation Bb? :D

Which is your favorite whistle?

Guilty as charged. :oops:

In my defense, though, I'm pretty much all sold out now. All the remaining whistles I just love too much to sell. Which is almost embarrassing, since by next week I'll have three Bb whistles, all wonderful in their own right. :shock: It's more riches than anyone should have, seems like. :)

Whistles formerly belonging to BH (that I know of)? I think I only have 2 at the moment -- the Reyburn Mezzo G and the Alba D, nontunable ... the first whistle I ever bought 'pre-owned'. Of course, there is a Laughing Whistle that we traded back & forth ... and Connie ended up with the his Greenwood D in another trade.

Y'know .. :-k .. we've just been financing his WhOA problem. Shame on us for aiding his addiction. :laughing:

;)

I think you do a great service to whistledom by circulating all these super whistles.

Yes, I should have thought of that! It's all YOUR fault, PWAers! You "enable" my addiction!! It's not my fault. I'm a victim of society! :mrgreen:

That Greenwood used to belong to Blackhawk?

That's a fine, fine whistle, the best I have. :D

So that makes three Blackhawk whistles in my pouch.
