Standard D whistle on the left and a drone whistle on the right. Both are tuneable and the drone can be configured in D or E. Two whistles in one! This is a brand new item, but may not included sealed packaging. All unsealed wind instruments are fully sanitized before shipping to a customer.
Carbon fiber has the sonic performance of a hardwood as ebony with much greater strength allowing for a thin wall design not possible before. This tapered design allows for close finger spacing for rapid passage articulation and volume balance in all registers. Now with anodized serialized laser engraved fipple body with ebonite tip. Comes with lifetime warranty & soft case (colors may vary).
If a whistle could have ever been built of ebony this is what it would sound like. The thin wall process of our tapered whistle design gives warm response of the lower octave. When playing with other instruments these notes are rarely heard, but not with Carbony™ composite! Our material resonance enhances lower frequencies and mutes upper register shrillness producing a volume balance in all registers.
All whistles now have our revision four fipple design. Our patented two-piece design enables machining accuracy of 0.001″. Our two piece assembly also facilitates optimal material selection. The blade/body is machined from aluminum and anodized for hardness, creating a stiff precise blade for maximum oscillation. The tip/windway is machined from marbled ebonite, the same material used to make saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces. Safe to put in mouth and durable enough to honor our lifetime warranty. The interface of the whistle is precision ground to mate with the fipple and form a tuning slide required in all professional grade whistles. The Carbony™ tapered design is based on the Copeland tradition.
