"I also had the same problem.  We finally pulled out the pins holding the chimes and replaced them with much older, brassy ones from an vintage tambourine that had chimes of the same size.  It has definitely tamed the volume. Elaine"

Wonder if you might like to comment on Ian Bell's photo of a tin whistle. I've gone about as fur as I can go, with it.
