About - Jubilee Music Instrument Co
Maker of Folk Music Instruments and Crafts.
Jubilee Music Instrument Co. Founded 1998 as hobby business to build music instruments.
I get a great joy out of building instruments and getting them into hands of musicians, whether beginner or advanced.
I have recently moved my workshop from the Peters Cartridge Factory back to my garage (1/4 mile from the previous location)
Tin Whistles, Folk Clarinets, Flutes and other instruments are built on my 1920's era Bradford Machine Lathe with a Variable Speed Motor Attached. Other equipment includes, Central Machinery Bandsaw, Sears Bench Grinder, Delta Drill Press, Delta Belt & Disk Sander, Dremel Drill Motor with specialized attachments, a cross-vise and a polishing wheel. Have recently added a 12" planer and a oscillating drum sander to the equipment.
Tonehole positions are calculated using Art Benade's Formulas and other special analysis. Special attention is given to avoiding sharp edges in the bore and undercutting procedures are observed.
In the summer of 1999, I began performing repair operations from my shop after doing a few private jobs and experimenting with equipment that I purchased for practice.
You'll also get a lot of experimental information on my Website, I encourage others who wish to build music instruments and you'll also find some very unusual instruments not seen on other websites (like the Bi-whistle, the Basswhistle or the Bag Whistle).

OPEN SOURCE WHISTLE DESIGN
Open source is good thing, on some newer products you will see something about "Open Source Whistle Design".
That means that the plans, tonehole positions, tubing size, finger hole distances, fipple dimension, tonebody lengths are available to the public. By making the tonebody information available, headjoints or tonebodies from other whistle makers could offer some compatibility.
