This whistle was lent to me by a kind and generous man for the purposes of review.
I was very glad to have the opportunity, as I never could seem to be
able to bring myself to purchase a Shaw. I wasn't personally overly
fond of it's looks, and the shaw low D had a reputation as a really
breathy whistle. I do want to point out that this is a used whistle
with some damage, including a dent on the top towards the head, and
another dent on the edge of the bottom of the whistle. I am unsure how
this damage may have affected the tuning or tone of the whistle.
