Tipple flute?

Anyone have a Tipple in low D that they would like to sell? 2 or 3 piece, 6 or 8 hole are all possibilities… I’m a whistle player that wants to try the dark side without a huge outlay of $$$. I was thinking about the Pakistani flutes on eBay, but the recommendations here have convinced me to look elsewhere.

Plunk,

You probably know about this, but here is the flute forum on Chiff and Fipple http://chiffboard.mati.ca/viewforum.php?f=2

where you can read how great Doug’s flute are and how best to avoid the paint can stirrers from Pakistan.

I made my own flute from Doug’s plans http://dougsflutes.googlepages.com/makingasimpleirishflute
and you can, too. Mine sounds great, and it cost me $2 in materials and about an hour.

If no one here offers to sell one, you might have success on the Chiffboard.

Why not buy one from the maker himself? http://dougsflutes.googlepages.com/

They’re a good value. I use one as a “rough travel” flute, but the feel is much like my Hammy blackwood.

Blimey, I was making plastic flutes 25 years ago just for the fun of it, never dreamt that they might be taken seriously and find their way into trad Irish. I gave them all away, Brian the flute got one of them. I made some bamboo ones as well. I wonder where they all are?

Just thought I’d share that with you🙂

Re: Tipple flute?

a tipple was my first flute, that’s what got me hooked! Hammy has something he calls a practice flute which is a great value also. Don
