Customer Reviews

Very breathy, but good whistle. Just needs a little getting used to.I'll be honest, at first I really did not like this. I had originally gotten a Clarke sweet tone. I'm a beginner so, right away I thought the sweet tone was a bad whistle, or a just a cheap whistle. Then, after practicing and getting better, this magical thing happens where a cheap whistle starts sounding pretty good. So, I wanted to give this a try considering a few people I watch on youtube love this whistle and it sounds good.Right away, it was SOO breathy, and it took a lot of breath for me. I thought maybe my product was defective. But sure enough it seems many people, even the ones that like it, know and tell you it is a breathy sounding whistle. Well, I'm not big on returns so I just started using it, practicing the same things I was practicing with the sweet tone to break it in. And I'll have to say, I actually do like this whistle a lot. Yea, the amount of air it needs is quite a bit, but once you get a little more conditioned than it's not so bad. The sound is very pleasing actually.It's not very loud, which, for practicing I prefer that. I think it has a nice mellow sound, the high notes are a little less piercing, which I also like. I would recommend this for a good whistle, with the disclaimer that the sound is nice, but it does require a good amount of air, which after a while of playing you probably won't notice that so much. And it's a good start to maybe getting a low d whistle at some point. I think if you get it and don't like it at first, maybe play it for a day or two and see if you like it after that. It took me a few days before I realized I really do like this whistle.4An Excellent PennywhistleClarke has been making pennywhistles since the mid-19th century, so they have plenty of experience. This instrument--while obviously costing much more than a penny--plays very easily and projects well, especially in the upper register. The only real concern that I have is that the untreated wood block might swell up when playing for a long time, or that it might change shape slightly over time. The Clarke Celtic Tin Whistle, which I will review separately, is also a nice alternative. The advantages to the Celtic Tin Whistle are (1) the plastic mouthpiece should be impervious to changes as a result of moisture, and (2) it actually projects a little better in the lowest octave. I've owned one of Clarke's MEG pennywhistles for some time, and it is also a workable instrument. The intonation on the Pennywhistle in D, though, is better than on either of the Clarke instruments with the plastic mouthpieces. This seems to be because this instrument has an optimal volume at which the tone and the intonation are best. So, what you lose in flexibility and projection, you gain in ease of tuning. One other thing: the black finish on the Pennywhistle in D is quite nice and distinctive. In conclusion: you can't go wrong with this instrument, but if you are concerned about the wood block over the long term, the Celtic Tin Whistle is a great alternative.5Beautiful whistle! Great for all levels.This is a really great sounding whistle. I like that it's in the key of D, because most or half of that awesome Celtic music is in D. I have no experience with woodwind instruments like recorders and tin whistles, although I have played piano for 6 1\2 years and also play harmonica. However, this video is of me playing a traditional Irish tune on it when I haven't been playing for very long at all. I highly recommend this whistle for any level. This is not the loudest whistle so don't use it onstage unless you're miked. The gold paint also goes great on it. If you have any previous experience with any instruments, this whistle will get you sounding like a pro in a few days. 5Mass Production Fail?I did not like this product. From low D-A, it sounded great. Any higher pitch sounded breathy and awful. There were gaps in the glue around the fipple it was raised above the mouthpiece. I gave it to my 4 year old so it wouldn't be too loud and ordered the Clarke Celtic, which is just a sweetone & noticed a huge difference, that one played much better (not a fan of the generic design though.. I like the bit of sparkle that it has as the other sweetones don't, but the gimmicky knot and green is a bit much, sounds good though. It was $3 cheaper than the normal sweetones)The Clarke classic, however, gorgeous. That is my 2 stars. I love the design, the feel of the wood. It is pretty snazzy. Unfortunately the construction lacked. I'm sure a flawless one would work better as I have watched videos of it sounding pretty awesome.2What a delightful purchase!This pennywhistle is a great beginner's instrument for anyone interested in learning how to play an instrument and all it entails such as reading music, fingerings and etc. I was thrilled with it particularly because the fingerings are similar to the alto saxophone and after all of my years playing the trumpet, I was able to reach the highest octaves in a short period of time. After a little practice, I was able to play "My Heart Will Go On" which was the initial reason for the purchase... that song randomly came on and I just had to get this instrument and learn how to play it!5Hard to play, but great whistle. The whistle was shipped the very next day after I ordered it, and it arrived two days later. Very pleased. As for the whistle itself, it is VERY difficult to play compared to my Oak Classic key of C whistle. When you get it and first start playing it, chances are you'll start out playing the second octave. It takes an insane amount of air control to play the first octave, because it requires little to no breath, and it is VERY soft and quiet. This new whistle does sound amazing though. It's crystal clear. 4/5 for the product because of how quiet the lowest octave is. 5/5 for the seller.EDIT: After playing around with the whistle for a couple hours, I'd like to change my rating to 5/5. It took a lot of effort, but I've figured out how to play the lowest register better. Now I can play it at that volume where it sounds soft enough to make that beautiful, mellow sound, but loud enough to for people to hear and enjoy. When you first get this whistle, don't give up on it. Make sure you use a VERY small amount of air to play it, otherwise you WILL start out playing in the second register and you'll be upset when you find it near impossible to reach the third register. (That's right. I'm implying that, in the right hands, this whistle could potentially play three octaves.) Great buy!In the video, I play the beginning of the song "Concerning Hobbits" from the Lord of the Rings trilogy on the Clarke Original Penny Whistle "D" that I bought here. (I have about 6 hours playing experience total on the tin whistle, which is why I lack the ability to play ornamentation.)Enjoy.5Clarke Original Penny Whistle "D"I'm a self-taught whistle/flute player. This is the first whistle I learned on. After many purchases, some quite expensive, in pursuit of the "perfect whistle", I went back to using the Clarke. I was surprised how beautiful it sounded in comparison to my other ones. The conical shape, and wood block mouthpiece gives it a unique sound, very soft, and well, "flutey". It takes a bit of breath control, as it does not have the back-pressure that some whistles have, and can be a bit of a lung deflator, but with proper breath control, they are a joy to play.I only wish that Clarke had more keys available other than the D and C. Dave Shaw is the only other whistle maker that makes these conical whistles in some unique keys, including a Low D, King of Lung Suckers, but they sound so nice! They are also more expensive than the Clarke. So I would recommend the Clarke, as an inexpensive, soft and easy to play whistle for anyone. I like the sound of these, as I said, but they are rather airy sounding, and some people prefer the straight bore type of whistle. It's a matter of taste. I have to add here though, that these Clarke whistles with the wood block in the mouthpiece sound very different than say the Meg, or Sweetone that they make, both of which have the plastic mouthpiece.All in all a very good purchase.5Inexpensive, Fun, and Sounds Good!I am a beginner with any sort of wind instrument. I bought this because I like to dabble with various instruments and of course, I wanted to learn how to play The Shire Theme (from LOTR).After reading and watching many reviews of various tin whistles, this seemed like the best choice for a well rounded instrument.I've been playing this for a couple months now and it is a great sounding, moderately breathy whistle with excellent tone and very easy to learn how to play. Sound projection is strong as well, and even stronger if you have well trained lungs and breath support. Many professional and long time players also recommend this particular whistle. A great whistle for all levels.5Buy this one! Warm, clean, clear tones, due to the better Fipple.Previously I purchased a Clarke CWD Celtic Tin Whistle, Key of D. It was barely okay. You had to blow the air just right for the different notes or you'd get weird intonations and harmonics. I love the simplicity of playing and sound of Tin Whistles. So, ordered a Waltons Irish Tin Whistle Pack Bk & Whistle. The Walton's whistle was crap. Again, weird harmonics when played.Looking for a better, quality whistle, I found a comparison video on YouTube. The whistle they liked most was the Clarke SBDC Pennywhistle Boxed, Key of D. The difference is the SBDC whistle has a Wooden insert in the Fipple.I played several notes, and a big smile came across my face. The sound was warmer, less tinny. The notes at both octaves were clean and clear. I am happy!!5Accurate Tuning, Warm Tone, Easy to PlayMy new Clarke tin whistle has accurate tuning right out of the box. I was concerned about this because it cannot be tuned, since the fipple is not adjustable. So, I checked it with an electronic tuner, and it easily plays within 15 cents of the correct pitch throughout the first octave of its range. (I used the PitchLab Guitar Tuner Pro app on my Android phone to check the tuning.)I also have this Oak tin whistle, which can be tuned by sliding the plastic fipple up or down the cylindrical brass body:Oak Pennywhistle In D (Oak Classic Pennywhistles)The wooden block in the fipple of the Clarke gives it a much warmer, flute-like sound than the Oak; however, the Clarke also sounds a bit breathy, so I'd say the Oak loses less air and plays more efficiently. The Oak has a brighter, louder, harder sound than the Clarke. Each sound has its place and can be useful in different types of music; I'd use a warm sound for a romantic song and a bright sound for more hard-driving music. The sound you need may also depend on the size of the venue and whether you are playing solo or need to be heard over other instruments in a band.I'm just learning how to play the tin whistle, but I find it easier to play scales with good intonation on the Clarke than the Oak. It may just be how the holes fit my fingers, or it may be that the breathy wooden fipple is more forgiving of small differences in air pressure that affect pitch. Both whistles are good instruments and excellent values for the money. I'm glad to have them!5
