Making A and G penny whistles

music, pennywhistle
A while ago I wrote about penny whistles and promised a post talking about making low whistles. Then I lost interest in them for a while. Yesterday, though, I decided I wanted to have G and A whistles. So I made some, following the same guide:
The whistles pictured are from bottom to top: low D, low G, low A, experimental extremely quiet D, and julia's standard D for comparison. My four are all made out of hot-cold pvc water tubing with wooden fipple plugs. I like them a lot.
