Low Whistle in D

This low whistle with tuning joint is available in a variety of woods: African blackwood, mopane or rosewood. All joints and metal fittings are made of brass.

The low whistle made of African blackwood creates a full sound which is rich in overtones and carries well.
The low whistle made of mopane creates a rounder sound which is slightly softer.
The sound of the rosewood low whistle takes a position between blackwood and mopane.

These instruments have a more powerful sound than most low whistles, due to the way in which they are built. Their sound remains powerful in the lower range, but is as well characterized by the warmth created by wood. Because they are built with a conical bore, their overall length is shorter than that of a typical aluminium low whistle, which is cylindrically bored. For this reason, they are comfortable to hold and easier to finger.

The following recording of Si Beag Si Mor, composed by Turlough O´Carolan, demonstrates the wonderful but slightly sound of these instruments.
