Spec Toy and Pyrotomic whistles

10 posts in this topic

Yep, I decided to pick up these on ebay this week. I had wanted some Pyrotomic whistles for the last 4 years only to be outbid time and time again. The Spec Toy whistle is interesting too though. When you hold your finger over the holes near the nose of the rocket, you could change the tone on the whistle. The Pyrotomic whistles are simply a notch above anything else of this kind, the Spec whistle has much thinner plastic used. Anyway, very happy with all 3! I just need to figure out how to take apart the blue whistle, whoever lined this one up, did a poor job at it. The Spec whistle reads on the top, "Space Signal"

Update! Just found this silver Pyrotomic whistle a week ago. Got some melt marks here and there but my micron papers helped diminish the marks a bit.
