Fs: Rare Whistles

Re: FS: RARE WHISTLES

One question: do the Sindt A and Bb use the same tubing size?

I ask because I had a Sindt A/Bb/B set, three bodies one head. I believe that he used his Bb size tubing for the set.

Re: FS: RARE WHISTLES

Oh, another thing: your Ebay listing mentions a piñata.

I think it would require at least a Low D to effectively whack a piñata. :)

pinata is a word scramble for us to solve.

piñata LOL

Can’t get over how "similar" the Killarney whistles are to the JS originals.

Re: FS: RARE WHISTLES

Well yes, I owned a Killarney D and a Sindt D, did quite a bit of playing back and forth, and I’ll say that they looked more alike than they played. There were many subtle differences in the tone, tuning, voicing, etc. No doubt Sindts are just about as good as whistles can be!

While it seems clear that Killarneys are copies of Sindts (probably in part due to the Sindt’s popularity with Ceoltas etc) the labelling of Sindts as "the originals" implies that the Sindt design was unprecedented. I don’t know enough about all the different makers over the years to know whether or not there was an antecedent to the Sindt design. I know I’ve not seen it.

One other thing: I am disappointed that none of the Sindts I owned ever acquired a piñata. It is said to come with age; but alas.

Patina, piñata. Let’s call the whole thing autofill.
