Traditional Irish Music
Here is an email I sent to Sandy Jasper of Elf Song Whistles in British Columbia Canada:
Got the whistle this morning (Tues) exactly one week after you shipping,
which is right on.
Very beautiful whistle ascetically, and has the tone I was looking for. Soft
and almost flutey. Excellent for airs and such. I will have to try it out in
the bathroom to get that haunting echo sound ;) . My studio is carpeted, and
is somewhat sound proof from the rest of the house. Not enough bounce back
I could not get over how heavy it is compared to the Susato, mind you the
Susato is "plastic" or what ever.
It is not as forgiving as the Susato either, but that is the whole idea of playing an
excellent whistle, right?. I have found my air flow needs to be more direct and tight
due to the mouth piece being thinner (in width by a 1/3rd), The finger holes
are spot on to what I am used to, and I notice the hole edges are "rounded" more
than some whistles I have tried which adds to comfort, for me anyhow.
It will probably take me about a week or so, having to change
my breathing a little, till I get used to it. I will send you a sound file of my most
favourite tune, Hector the Hero, once I get the breathing down. I tried the tune this morning
and afternoon, and my breath spots have changed a little from the Susato whistle playing.
Nice work there lady. :-)
