Customer Reviews

My first pennywhistleThis is the first pennywhistle I've owned so I'm not able to rate it in comparison to others. I am an experienced musician on some other instruments, so as such I can say that I think this whistle has good intonation and playability. I like the sound of it; it has an "airiness" to the sound which I understand is different from some others with plastic mouthpieces (I have one such on order). One note about the mouthpiece: it is formed by inserting a wooden plug into the metal sleeve, so your mouth is directly contacting unfinished wood. Which is to say, probably not a good idea to share this between multiple players, unless you're into germ-sharing. Also, this is not tunable at all, whereas I understand that with the plastic mouthpiece kind, you can usually move the mouthpiece to tune it.4Still learning, but having funI am just learning to play this instrument, but having fun. I bought pennywhistles in keys of both C and D. It turns out that all the beginner music seems to be written for the D instrument, so I am not sure you need the C instrument at all. It might be good once you get more advanced. It is easy to get a clean note out of and fun to mess around with. I got it because I want something easy to play when I travel and it seems a little delicate, as in it might get bent in a back pack, so I will need to find some way to protect it. It is good playable instrument that is very inexpensive.5InterestingI don't know if it's the wooden mouth piece or the length, but I get extremely light headed while playing it. It steals your breath and has a raspy/ breathy sound2Very Airy, Takes A Huge Amount of AirI bought this whistle to play in an upcoming concert. I'm a saxophonist and frequent tin whistle player, so I'm no stranger to playing woodwinds. This whistle has a very mellow and flute-like sound, but it is very airy and takes tons of air. I can barely get through two measures without breathing. I would not recommend this to a beginning wind player; go with an instrument like the Feadog which you can learn without getting light-headed. If you are a tuba player or flautist, go for it, it'll be no problem for you.I would also say that if you are wanting to play in a group, this instrument would not cut through the sound to be a descant. The timbre just isn't focused enough.2Good Pennywhistle; Great PriceClarke has a long history of producing pennywhistles. Unlike the Clarke D pennywhistle, this one is not as immediately usable and consistent; however, if you are going to play in the key of C major or F major, you'll need a C whistle. This one is workable, but not as good as the D whistle or the company's other products I've played. The sound doesn't focus quite as well; however, this could be peculiar to this specific instrument (e.g. maybe the woodblock in the mouthpiece is slightly misaligned). The price is excellent, though, and the intonation is pretty consistent.4Great for the priceUsing their key of C fingering the whistle plays in tune.It does take more air than my flute, alto, flute or piccolo.It is a little airy but I like it. I also have a Woodnote Key of C and it is easier to play, but it also stays in tune using the proper fingerings.5Lovely soft tone!I just received my Clarke Original tinwhistle in C today and love it already. I am a beginner but it has a nice warm tone, not shrill like some starter whistles. Love it! Would love to get some of these in colors other than black or silver. Like pink, aqua, a satiny red or green! I would definitely buy them!5ExcellentThe Clarke Original Whistle in D is one of my favorite whistles, and in the key of C it is just as good. Without a doubt, these are some of the best sounding inexpensive whistles out there.The Clarke Original does require more breath control and amount of breath than the more modern whistles with plastic mouthpieces, but it is worth the extra effort for the beautiful tones it produces.5This is one of the better cheap tin whistles on the marketThis is one of the better cheap tin whistles on the market. I have bought about five or six different penny whistles, and I've found that the Clarke Whistles give the best tone, and are most durable as compared to the other whistles I have tried.5Great little insturment once you get the hang of itI am an accomplished flute player with a love for anything Irish/Celtic. I don't have the money to go about and buy an amazing $600 Pennywhistle. For the price I was impressed.. once I got the hang of it. It's not perfectly in tune for those of us who are hard wired for that but with a little creativity you can figure out your own alternate fingerings that might be more in tune that those in the Clarke Tin Whistle Book. I like that it's in C so that I can play with and teach things to my younger traditional flute students. It's especially fun to learn the high notes. I highly recommend you purchase the book. It's good for those who read and understand music already as well as for those who might be just starting out. The difficulty doesn't really pick up too fast until you get the ornamentation section.4
