Worth the price
20.07.2015
The tin whistle is a fun instrument, and it doesn't break the bank either. Although this whistle is made from plastic and not metal, I think the sound is excellent.

This particular one is black, although multiple colors are offered.The only exception from the black appearance is the figure of a man performing a little dance whilst playing the whistle, together with the text "The original Sweetone".

The tin whistle has six holes at the top, and no thumb hole at the bottom. The pinkies of each hand are therefore not used other than for balance. Same goes for both thumbs. I imagine that this makes the instrument somewhat easier to play than the recorder for beginners. I personally feel that it also makes it easier to play a scale, the way the the instrument is designed. The downside is that the range feels more limited than a recorder (even though I'm not it is, since you are supposed to be overblowing the upper notes).

Given the low cost, I would recommend buying several of these in different keys. This will make it a lot easier to get used to playing different songs in different keys, since playing the chromatic notes can be a bit tricky.

Good beginners pennywhistle
Sebastiano P., 19.03.2015
I was comparing a lot of different tinwhistles and most people pointed me to this one. It is easy to play but the amount of breath pressure changes the tone. It has a clear and pretty sound. Also as a first time player, it was easy to make decent sound.

I concur with many that says this make an "airy" sound, compared to other whistles but I like this, it make the sound more characteristic.
I think it is great for the beginners as a starter whistle but also if I'm not an expert, to my ear is good also for the intermediate - advanced. I think that for this price is the best you can get.

Beautiful
27.03.2017
Its a beautiful product. For a beginner like me, its just works perfectly. I'm learning it better. I had another one from Clarke at C too, but comparing to that, this one is better. I think I'm becoming a better player each day I'm practicing.

Despite its infamous classroom or beginner’s image, the recorder is in fact just as difficult to play well as most other instruments.
