Generation whistles are made in
England. They are available in your choice of Brass (pictured on the left) or Nickel
(pictured on the right). They have a plastic fipple (mouthpiece). The plastic fipple
has become accepted by traditional whistle players over the years, because of the
consistency of sound compared to a wooden fipple (wood can change tone when wet...). The
brass whistles have a warmer sound, the nickel's tone is brighter.
Whistles of any key are all fingered
the same, but the notes played are different. See our
Frequently Asked Questions Page for more info on playing with different keyed
Note that these whistles can be made
tunable. See our Beginner's Section for
instructions on how to do this.
