Sindt whistles

Sindt whistles

I know that every once in a while the topic of whether John Sindt is still making whistles comes up on the Session. I had the distinct pleasure of spending a few minutes with John in his Nyack workshop today. He told me that as long as he is physically able to continue to make whistles, he will make them. From all appearances, John is a hale an hearty 77 year old ( I hope I look as good as he when I am 77).

Re: Sindt whistles

Good news! I’ve had an order in for two more, placed about 5 years ago. Last email I sent him was a couple of years back or thereabouts. I didn’t want to bother him more recently. Figured he was either working through his backlog, or not working at all.

I may see my Bb yet…

Re: Sindt whistles

Yep, earlier in the year I received another Sindt C, which was just recently made by him. He’s still making them as good as ever, if not better.
