I received this letter from Vance Whelpy after he got his new Low G whistle.
I got my Low G Whistle today and it rocks. You make a very wonderful product and well worth the cost. I only wish I had gotten it on eBay so more people could have read a positive feedback from me. It plays very smooth and your tuning slide is simple and effective. I picked it up at the post office before going to the Dr and I played all the way from Eagle River to the Drs in Anchorage.
My wife was driving and enjoyed it very much.
Your Whistle played fantastic and I like the fact I can take it apart and clean it. I also like the cleaning stick, all of the information and fingering chart you included with it . It’s a fun instrument.
I have an aluminum Dixon D whistle which is my favorite whistle…this whistle might have replaced it.
It’s nice playing tunes I play in G on a D whistle and transpose them on to the G whistle starting with my bottom right hand. Nice mellow tone. I like playing tunes in C as well. It’s just a great all round whistle and I love it.

PS it’s 1:00AM here and I am still playing
I received this letter from Vance about a week later.
I bought a Low G whistle from you and I am very happy with it. But I am happy with something else you gave me for free. Polishing out a bore with a Shotgun mop. It also works on cheap wooden flutes from Pakistan. I used it with good results on a small cocus wood flute in F sold on eBay.
I could only get the top three notes to play and looked in the bore and saw wood bits hanging from the drilled holes and it looked rough. I cleaned out the bore and oiled it and I got the 4 top holes to play. I remembered the mop trick and got out my drill and started polishing. I was able to get it buffed smooth. I oiled it again and assembled the flute and it played like a charm.
Thanks for the tip and I thought I would pass this on.
A happy Whistler and Flautist.
