Silkstone "GoldRing" Whistle
Key of D
British Racing Green
Quite sadly, Paul Hayward passed away in November 2012. Silkstone whistles are no longer available.
Rest in peace, Paul.
Silkstone whistles are fairly new to the World of Whistles, but they are
already receiving some excellent reviews. They are made in England by Paul Hayward, who
pays tremendous attention to the smallest of details. His whistles are made of uPVC,
most cars would be envious of the paint job - and they sound as good as they look!
They have a wonderful, full, round tone, and are loud enough to keep up in sessions
without being overpowering or shrill.
The gently tapered finger holes are very comfortable, and the curved
windway reduces the chance of condensation build-up when playing.
This "GoldRing" Silkstone answers the need for a little
quieter whistle. It has the same full, round tone that his his regular whistles do, but
slightly less volume.
Each whistle is individually numbered and initialed, and comes with a
handsome hand-made pouch, and "Owners Manual" (see pics below). The Owners
Manual includes a fingering chart, as well as some info about Paul Hayward, Silkstone, and
whistles in general.
