Bought this because I did not have any all plastic whistles in my collection. Was hoping it would be a cheaper alternative to the Susato whistles I have seen. Unfortunately, I find that although I like the overall sound and the feel of it, it handles poorly as it takes a lot more puff to play than my Clarke, Generation, Dixon or Feadog metal whistles and tends to split a lot in the second octave with a really nasty sound on certain notes. The Thomann D whistle I also bought has the same problem. I may do some experiments to see if I can modify it to improve it a little but at the moment I've put it away with my other duds. Maybe a better player than me could get it to behave but given that I have a much easier time with other whistles, I think it's just down to the design being not quite right.
I have just taken up whistle, but had skilled whistlers test my C and D whistles for me.
I first heard this whistle at a workshop where and we compared it with a Susato and for the huge price difference it sounded great; and way better than the basic tin whistles of similar price (untunable and more piercing sound).
I bought both the Thomann G and C whistles, as the postage (£7ish UK) was no more for one than two. Delivered in the time promised.
Both are described as one piece, but are actually tunable (moveable head) which is a pleasant surprise. Both have good volume, play well through their range, with mellow tone and easy to get good sound out of it. A plastic whistle is also less prone to temperature related tone changes. It also plays well softly (kind to neighbours when learning/practicing). The plastic cases are basic but adequate and perfectly acceptable for the price.
