This sequence shows how I make these whistles. You may find a better way! If so please let me know! Several fellows have made their whistles using aluminum for the core and copper tubing for the outside. If you do this be sure to have a good press fit on the fipple. Good luck and I hope you get a good deal of enjoyment from making your Steve Lovely whistle.
