That is, if you can "find" a good Generation in D. I've heard the story about
how Mary Bergin uses them a million times but she told us a story at East
Durham this year about trying to find a good one. She told us that once she
sat down with a whole case of Generations (a gross of them I think) and didn't
find one that was acceptable to her. She now plays a John Sindt whistle.

I, too, think it is great that whistle players have so many choices of
instrument makers now, though I still prefer good Generations. I like
Copeland's whistles almost as much--I prefer his brass whistles to his
silver, but only splitting hairs.
