Nice whistle, but low range

Comments:

I bought this slide whistle to play on Robert Russell Bennett's Symphonic Songs for Band. Unfortunately, it didn't have the high range that gives a slide whistle that silly, circus-like sound that Bennett was going for in the last movement. Also, it was unable to project loudly enough over the ensemble. Having been trained as a singer, I think I had the appropriate breath control needed to play it as loudly, and smoothly as it could be. It just was no match for our 60-piece wind ensemble. I ended up using a $2.00 slide whistle that I had in my classroom. That was able to give me the high tones I was looking for, although I'm not sure if it was heard either. Anyway, aside from all that, it is a very nice instrument with a full, round tone. It's range is an octave and a sixth, from E flat to C.

The sound and control with this instument is significantly better than the 10.00 slide whistles available. For storage and protection I purchased a 2" x 12" Clear Plastic Storage Tube with End Caps from i10Direct.com for about 3.00 /each. Steve Weiss Music provided fast, reasonable shipping and was the low cost provider at the time of the order (01JUNE12).

Slide Whistle

Comments:

Pretty good whistle. Nice projection (despite being plastic). I did not give it a five because of it's length (I have trouble getting all partials of the whistle to speak. Anyone who has played a wind instrument would have no trouble, I'm just not used to adjusting my mouth and airstream yet). Good for the wallet and the budding independent percussionist/pit drummer.
