YES, \:D/ :-' as of today I do make Bb whistles, and have fun doing it. Thanks for your encouragement Blackhawk. Just a little more cosmetic work and I hope to post pictures by Friday.

Excellent, Tommy! I can't wait to see those pictures. Bb is a great key.


OK, think gray, not white. I had to much light. Bb on top and a pair of A's. Curved wind way, and curved under side of mouthpiece.

In case any are making any whistles, this fairly new spreadsheet that I have written corrects the problem with the low notes being slightly flat and the upper notes being slightly sharp. Tight tuning with good closed hole correction.

http://www.tinwhistles.us/flute-diatonic.xls
Hole positions are measured from the bottom up to the center of the hole.
The only thing to watch out for is the length - this can vary easily because of mouthpiece design.

I would be happy to share some trade secrets if anyone is interested in learning more about whistle making. I can show you how to make one out of pvc or copper..... any key with a dremmel and pretty much nothing else, except maybe a vise and a couple little hand tools....

you can see my whistles at:
