Low D whistle suggestions
I’ve been considering getting a low D whistle and I am looking for some advice/recomendations.
I have never blown into a low D. I’ve handled a couple but never one that I was invited to try out. (among the musicans I know playing someone elses whistle isn’t a biggie, after all Guinness kills germs you know, it’s just they don’t have low whistles) I did like the feel of the Chieftain, but have been told by a reliable source that they are shite.
My hands are hammy and I’m concerned about the stretch, even my Susato B flat cramps me if I play for an extended period, am I asking for carpal tunnel?
I don’t want to shell out for say a Copeland and I don’t like the plastic whistle sound, like say Susato (though they are nice and loud for outdoor playing and they play okay when they are cold)
Lastly, I wan’t to make the right decision and not have to buy two or three to find the right one. (my spouse can only take so much of my "instrument aquisition syndrome.")
Any thing usefull for my situation would be appreciated.
Thanks in avance.
