What is a good brass whistle for about £20-25; similar to the dixon brass, which seems discontinued
I have a dixon polymer which works great for me so I thought I would go back to them to try a brass one as I would like a decent (low-mid range) brass one as the low low ones I just can’t get them sounding nice; tried faedog, generation, clare and all have that shrill obnoxious sound.
I would like a sweet soft sounding brass one. I know it isn’t just my playing because the polymer one sounds just fine to play. I have tried with the other brass ones above time and time again and just can’t get an enjoyable sound out of them. It always feels like I am wrestling with the instrument whereas the polymer is a really smooth easy play; I just would like a brass one of the same price point to experiment with for that ‘authentic’ trad sound.
Hmm I suppose I should go with a freeman tweaked (only just remembered that one!) shouldn’t I in that case as you can’t get more authentic than that and that will be in the same price range. I wonder if it will cost a lot for UK postage…
Oh it isn’t looking good on that front either!
3 bad feedback saying items weren’t sent in the last month
it says he has stopped doing tweaked generation Ds due to inconsistency.
Are we under a quality (and affordable) D whistle drought?
