Original D Tinwhistle – Black/Gold
Clarke’s Original Tinwhistle is still produced essentially the same way as Clarke’s first whistle made in 1843. It has a tapered metal bore to bring the finger holes closer together and to increase the range and make the whistle more accurate in the upper registers. The sound is difficult to describe in words, when comparing it to a plastic top whistle most people would say more musical, mellower, a little more character or possibly a less modern sound.
