Bernard Overton Low D and Cillian O'Briain Low D wanted

I'm looking for an early Bernard Overton Big Hole Low D, preferably with a shortened beak. Does anyone own one they're happy to part with? I'm also after a Cillian O'Briain Low D preferably non-tuneable though I will consider tuneable too. Many thanks.See More

"It looks and sounds awesome! Few questions for you. What's the volume like? I prefer something not too loud like the Freeman Generation I have but what is this Lofren like? How does it fare with clogging issues? And are the holes finished off,…"

"Do you feel like posting a full review of the Lofgren Low D because, from what Marc says, he's getting a lot of interest in them, far more than in his high whistles, and I tbhink potential buyers would like to know much more about them and…"

"I would just add this. Marc Duff told me that while he owned all tunable Goldies, he liked the sound of a non-tunable Goldie - no disturbances in the tube due to the joint I guess. And non-tunables have low maintenance issues so there are advantages…"
