Excellent tone and quality
Clavis Muziek, 13.05.2019
I don't use this whistle for Samba-music but for all kinds of music and sounddesign. It's very nice to have three notes in a whistle like this. Very expressive. The sound is not too harsh, rather mellow (for a whistle). For me that's a positive thing but I can imagine some people prefer a sharper sound.
It's made of plastic but high quality plastic that feels very strong.

Great whistle for the price
Omarena80, 01.09.2019
This whistle has a great sound, is really light and its easy on the mouth, which is great when you are playing another instrument (s). It's loud enough BUT the sound doesn't overwhelm you or the public. If you want to be heard over (for examples drums) then go with a metal one. Overall, a great,great buy. Enjoy!

A softer apito :)
Damien293, 12.03.2015
This whistle is really an essential for anyone involved in leading a samba band/school. Samba leaders generally use it to call the attention of players and signal breaks or changes in the rhythm. BUT it's not just for that specific purpose, I have used this whistle (sometimes referred to as an Apito) in some recording work to add a carnival feel with it's tri-tone sound, I found it really good for copying and developing bell patterns for samba (usually played on agogo bells).
If I'm leading in a samba group I tend to hold the whistle between my teeth while I'm playing repinique and that's where this particular whistle comes in really handy (no pun intended); the plastic body stops the possibility of damaging your teeth which can happen with the metal bodied whistles (from the same maker). The only drawback is its' volume level; compared to the metal apito it is allot quieter so if you're playing with over a 15 piece ensemble it may have difficulties cutting across (particularly if you're outdoors).
Overall I would happily take the drop in volume (which is small enough) over having chipped teeth from gripping a metal whistle.
