|Genuine English Clarke CELTIC Whistle, considered one of the Best Whistles by experienced players.|
Clarke are renowned the world over for their quality whistles. And has a sound far above its modest cost.
It is impossible to hear a slow air played with depth of feeling on a Tinwhistle by a true Celt, without being drawn into, and sharing the emotions expressed by the player.
When Robert Clarke invented the Tinwhistle in 1843, little did he know that it would become the perfect wind instrument to be played universally in all the Celtic lands.
It can be heard in concert halls, broadcasts, churches and above all, especially in Ireland, in the pubs.
Having just six holes, it is even simpler than a recorder, and so easy to learn to play. Inexpensive and can be conveniently carried so as to be available for performances on all occasions.
Supplied in the key of D, this traditionally looking CELTIC Tinwhistle is finished in dark green with Celtic knot logo, comes attractively packaged in a box with tune sheet and fingering chart.
The "D" whistle is the one most commonly used in Irish music.
The favourite instrument of distinguished Tinwhistle players ever since 1843, this Clarke Tinwhistle can be considered the Stradivarius of Tinwhistles. The instrument is still made of tinplate.
Delicate operations still continue to be done by hand and, most importantly, Robert Clarkes traditional conical bore has been retained to give the instrument its unique sound, called chiff.
No other Tinwhistle has the same degree of chiff as a Clarke.
The tone of the Clarke Tinwhistle is clear and flutelike, but it is also described as crisp and responsive by Bill Ochs, and husky and sensual by Mary Bergin. All these descriptions add up to chiff what Tommy Makem calls The great Clarke tone. This is what makes a Clarke Tinwhistle unique.
