Listing Detail Tabs
A handcrafted penny whistle in the key of G major. It is an alto whistle, lower than D whistles like the Clarke or Feadog. These whistles are tough, made from PVC. They feature a small bell/horn which helps improve the volume of the lower notes of each octave compared to the higher ones. They also have a curved lip against which the air is directed like a classical flute, rather than a straight one, giving a more distinctive tone. Each whistle is carefully hand tuned to concert pitch A=440Hz, within the limits of variable air temperature and how hard you blow. Range is two octaves, G4 to F#6, and maybe a couple of notes higher although they are rather loud! Besides the key of G, the whistle is easily played in Dorian mode (the scale starting on A), in C by half-holing the F# and of course Em. My whistle has a very comfortable mouthpiece shape compared to most PVC or aluminium whistles and all feature the Takahe emblem of my Takahe Flutes brand. Instruction sheet included, they are shipped in a triangular package which is very strong. You can see and hear me play this whistle here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yad3gQQUCW4 Sorry Tui bird not included ;-)
