The Slow Game

Sometimes it can seem like the most frustrating thing: 12 years after starting out and only the D and the F have made it into the hands of musicians.  As a musician it often seemed that an idea cooked up that day, or even on the spot, could make it out into the world and be enjoyed by others right there and then.  As an instrument maker it all changed.   Things took years, decades, or even lifetimes to come to fruition, and the more you tweaked, tinkered and listened the longer it took.  I’d like to think that it pays off though.  Well made musical instruments are not only capable of incredible feats with the right partnership, but they can also go and go for many years.

    I’m glad you kept at it; my MK Pro might not have participated in any incredible feats to date, but but it brings me joy every time I play it.

    It is all worth it, Misha. We love your whistles! As an example, I just found more to love about my Pro D. I found a new fingering for C natural, 020456. That C always sounded a little fuzzy on my whistle and it bothered me.
    Does anyone else use this fingering?
