These links lead to most of the
vendors I've dealt with buying whistles over the years. These are big music
shops, like Hobgoblin, Lark in the Morning, etc. I'm not linking to
individual whistlesmiths, such as Paul Busman, Copeland Woodwinds,
etc. That's because there are something like a fifty or more whistlesmiths
making whistles now, and that's a lot of links to make you wade through. If you
want to find an individual whistlesmith's website, please check out my reviews,
as all of my reviews have a list of websites where you can get the whistle in
question. if you're still having trouble, or I haven't reviewed that make of
whistle yet, feel free to send me an email! These links are by no means the
complete list of whistle shops out there!

everything, ask for a catalog. It's way cool.

Houston. Also, the only place I've been able to easily get mail order Duponol
