Clarke: The Original Tinwhistle - Key Of D

Instruments | Pennywhistle

Catalogue No: SBDC
Format: Instruments | Instrument
The favourite instrument of distinguished tinwhistle players ever since 1843!

The Clarke Tinwhistle is still made of tin-plate with a wooden plug in the mouthpiece. Delicate operations still continue to be done by hand and, most importantly, Robert Clarke's traditional conical bore has been retained to give the instrument its unique sound, called "chiff", and no other tin whistle has the same degree of "chiff" as a Clarke.

The tone of the Clarke Tinwhistle is clear and flute-like, but it is also described as "crisp and responsive" by Bill Ochs; and "husky and sensual" by Mary Bergin. All these descriptions add up to "chiff"; What Tommy Makem calls, "The great Clarke tone". This is what makes a Clarke Tinwhistle unique.

The tin whistle is a simple, traditional musical instrument; ideal for popular and folk music but it is also suitable for a much wider musical repertoire. It is just as good for solo playing as in ensemble with other musical instruments; and can be played by children, youth or adults alike.

Robust and easy to care for, the Clarke Tinwhistle has a long life. Play it... enjoy it... and join the millions of fellow musicians who have had their start in music from the famous Clarke Tinwhistle.

Available in the keys of C or D and gift boxed with fingering chart and tune sheet enclosed.

        One of the notes only squeaks. Must be a physical problem in manufacture.

        Bon rendu du son en particulier dans les aigus, belle finition, seul bémol : la pièce en bois à l'embouchure pourrait être mieux sertie.
