I've been getting into top sounds lately.

I like to hold tops up to my ear when they are spinning.  The whistlers/hummers are of course easy to hear.  But, the hollow tops are nice, too.  If you can get the lower section of a twin spin or trip-l-top in your hand, the rushing air sound is nice.

Yes! You've emboldened me to remove the stem loop from the tin top I got through you. (Thanks again!)

It whistles/hums pretty well.  You'll notice the whistles fades, then after a pause, starts again a bit softer.  It also whistles stronger on a boomerang.

I really like this tin top -- the colors, the silhouette and reflections, the spin-down choreography, and especially the rich sound portrait it paints over time: Hissing from various surfaces, a reappearing descending whistle from the side holes, percussion from the tip contact, and ringing of the metal in response. I've been getting into top sounds lately.

That worked for me (and I didn't have to sign in to Google).

Yes, good whistling and much longer spinning without the string attached.

This is a video of the tin top spinning.  This wasn't my best throw, but it landed in the field of view of the camera.  I took the metal spinner off the crown and wound it like any other top.  It whistles/hums pretty well.  You'll notice the whistles fades, then after a pause, starts again a bit softer.  It also whistles stronger on a boomerang.  Took me a bit to build up the nerve to try a boomerang, since you're basically flinging a projectile with a ten penny nail attached.
I cannot see it, even after logging into google (what I prefer not to have to do).

I'm having a hard time with the video posting.  Not sure what I am doing wrong. Does this work https://photos.app.goo.gl/ecigdT0FOhRNYcUb2

Spingear has become a great source of tops!  :)

This is called "Tonbo".
I knew them as Higo Koma, which is also the title of the spingear page. Is higo koma a more generic name and tonbo more specific?

Japanese style Spintop.

Made by camellia wood,very heavy weight.

We have similar Koma as spintop,but no step for string,so use fat string to spin.

This is called "Tonbo".Weight center balance in high,so easy to stand up after attacked. Desgined for battle top.

When i saw this,I asked to artist to make Japanese style spintop.
