Well, myself, I think we should all be playing Clarkes.
Let's face it, a Real Tin Whistle is made by stamping the
instrument out of scrap tinplate, wrapping it around a form,
soldering the edge, and sticking a chunk of wood in the top
end. All the rest with plastic mouthpieces or wooden bodies
A minute of silence for the now-obsolete Clarkes that had
the wooden plug held in by rough nail holes. Now they're
selling instruments without any nail holes at all, and a
plug glued in with some decadent modern adhesive. Sigh.
(No, I won't admit here what kind of whistles I actually
have and play. ;-)
