GK
Imagine paying 5 bucks for a decent whistle
Gin Kreuz 31.10.2019
I've been blowing air into instruments for 12 years, and now I breathed into this one; read my experience below.

• SOUND: Sufficiently loud, very mellow. There's That One Expensive American Maker manufacturing wonderful whistles for about 30 bucks, and the first octave of the Thomann whistle can almost keep up in quality. The second one will give you more air and intensity. I usually stick to the first octave.

• FEATURES: With this, I rated the capability of the instrument to provide nice sounding ornamentation like cuts and strikes. While responsive to ornamentation, cuts and strikes are rather bland harmonics-wise compared to other whistles.

• RESPONSE: About what I'm used to with whistles — breath control feels natural, not too sensitive and not too stubborn.

• QUALITY: The make is impressively simplistic and smooth. However, there's something about the seam on the sound chamber that makes it scream "plastic!" Granted, that wouldn't be far off the mark, but is that the story you want the instrument to tell without anyone asking? Its look is affected solely by the seam though. The rest looks clean. I've paid more for cheaper-looking instruments.

Want to try a whistle? Get this.

Great flute for beginners and fans of 'loud'
Jacob Tuijt 08.07.2020
I play flute, bagpipes and lute in a historical street musical theatre group where I have to compete with up to 5 guild drums. These whistles are very much up to the task of making themselves heard amongst the drums.

Some of my group members are learning to play the whistle as well and for this price the whistles are very good beginners instruments.

Yes, they are a bit loud, especially in the upper octave, but hey, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

So if you want to buy a very good whistle for concerts, this may not be the one, but if you want to start out or you need volume, this is certainly a good way to go.

Just get one
Zsemle 26.04.2022
Never had a whistle before, or played a similar instrument.

Got one just to try it. At this price point, there is little reason I think to fault it. I got a lot of enjoyment out of this, well worth the money.
