Tin Whistle

The traditional flute from Ireland
At the time of industrialisation, simple tin whistles were created in England and Ireland, which were produced in large numbers and were therefore affordable for the common people. This is why they were given the name penny-whistle.

We offer the tin-whistle from the Clarke company, which is made of tin and has a wooden peg as a mouthpiece.
The wide windway produces a slightly smoky tone.
It is painted black and available in "C" or "D" tuning.
