Wow, this thread really took off out of nowhere. I wasn't familiar with Northumbrian pipes before until now. I also have a keen interest in the tin whistle, I'd really love to get my hands on a good quality one.

I think most of the fun of tin whistles is that you don't need to spend a fortune to get a good one. The imperfections are part of the character.

Generation are good, but test play a few before buying. I like the Clarkes as well, but they take a lot more air. Just ned to learn to play mine properly.

I'm a double bass player and I've played in a trio of Uillean pipes, drums and bass. Kind of "experimental free form jazz" just the sort of thing to lead the troops into battle!

Marching with a double bass can be challenging.

I'm intrigued- have you got any recordings?

No sound clips, but here's a pic from the session.
the drummer is a young tutor from Yeovil called Ben Cornish (great player), the pipes played by Dom from Somerset who makes them, and the electric bass player is Ian Sprog who jumped on bass whilst I took some pics. My double basses are in the foreground and behind the amp.
