Quality Materials for a Sublime Sound
We’ve made this whistle from brass due to its excellent acoustic properties. Brass gives a brighter and more responsive sound than aluminium. The brass fipple also features a sturdy Delrin cork which helps to create a strong, clear tone.
The fipple plays a crucial role in the tone any whistle produces. That’s why ours is made from Delrin. Delrin is a polymer that offers high wear resistance and longevity. It also helps to produce a brighter tone that will cut through any session.
It’s designed with a sleek, stylish matte black finish which will turn heads at any Irish music session.
Don’t let the price confuse you. This is a premium whistle, among the top whistles on the market, but offered at a budget friendly price. The Wild Whistle will make a beautiful sound from the moment you pick it up to play your very first note. You’ll be excited to practice on this quality instrument. It will take your playing to the next level in no time at all.
