My D Sweetone is pretty nasal. I wonder if that was done intentionally
to give some "variety" to the tone in the lower octave? I can't
imagine that such a well-made (plastic?) fipple - practically
indestructible - could have that "noise" accidentally.

Or rather it *doesn't* have the cost of your regular whistle! :)
Geez - low whistles are becoming a rather expensive "habit," aren't
they? I hear he's selling different "feet" for them now so you can
get one head joint and play in a few keys for less than the price of
a single key in practically every other make of whistle. (Not only
that, but he sells flute headjoints as well, so for pretty cheap you
could have the equivalent of 2 differently-keyed low whistles and
2 differently-keyed flutes. I'm not a flautist, though, so no idea
about how good those are.)
I agree the PVC is a little different, but it's great. I was worried
about it before I got it, but I've been enjoying my #8 whistle for a
long time. (I think his serial numbers are well into the hundreds by
