Earl's Powell

January 17, 2009 07:13AM
The whistle in the video is a Powell 3 chime, although it isn't a very good example of what that wonderfull whistle sounds like. Earl Knoob has custody of it, so it's currently on the SL&RG #18. It is actually the whistle from Rayonier #120, a logging Mallet. If you want to have the hair stand up on the back of your neck, buy Stan Kistler's CD "Whistles in the Woods" and listen to what it sounds like on a rainy day in the deep woods of Washington state!

The reason you like it second to the Cass Lunkenheimer is the Cass whistle is probably also a Powell. Here's a link to a youtube video at Cass. The first whistle is not the Powell, but after a few seconds you will hear and see it.
