If you've bought a high D whistle, and find it a bit loud or shrill, there are other keys available. (The fact that I make whistles and flutes has nothing to do with the last statement). The larger the whistle, the deeper it is, and it usually follows that the holes will be larger and more widely spaced, which may make things a bit awkward for the complete newcomer.

Do you have a question?


It’s a good idea to keep your whistle wind way clean to keep it playing at its best. Generally speaking blowing it through before and after playing should achieve this. However sometimes over time dirt can build up in the mouth piece and impede its performance. To clean this out we suggest you use thin stiff card (business card thickness) to push small bits of dirt out and then rinse with warm water until its clean.
