Ultra Low C Whistle at a Wicked Good Price!

ULTRA LOW C  GIF

The Ultra Low C whistle is the newest addition to the WhistleSmith line.

I developed the whistle over the summer months after receiving an inquiry from Dave Manners in the UK.  After my own testing in the shop, I had two very good whistle players check the play ability and tone of the new whistle.

 Their response to the new instrument over several weeks was “Don’t change anything…leave everything alone!”

Due to demand for this whistle, I am temporarily out of at once inventory.

If you need an Ultra Low C, I will custom make a single order whistle from parts on hand. Please check by phone to order and get a delivery time.  

Over the summer, quality pipe was difficult to obtain in suitable  amounts. After a lot of searching, I obtained a new type of pipe with a very polished bore from SPIF and this material turned out to be excellent whistle material.

The Ultra Low C whistle is a unique design that plays with less breath and increased volume. The whistle is easily cleaned, fully tunable and has minimum finger reach on all of the holes. All fingering is exactly the same as a regular C whistle.

Low C Whistle is 25 inches long and takes down at the tuning slide to 18 inches. Mouthpiece is the original Straight Shot model with improved volume cut on the wind way. Mouthpiece is made from white polymer pipe with a high density dark gray poly plug. Tone body is air brushed with vinyl black color coat and has stippled silver accent ring and dazzle silver striping. This whistle is perfect for playing in the Key of C, F, and Dm with no cross fingering to learn.

Fingering is comfortable for folks with hands equal to a mans size large glove. Maximum finger reach is 3 inches from tip of pointer finger to tip of ring finger using enough gripping pressure to seal the finger holes. Both hands have offset finger holes for the ring finger positions. Sound is rich and full with balanced high and low octaves.

 If you currently play a WhistleSmith Low D, you can play this new Low C. No “bagpipe fingering” required!

The on hand inventory is limited to 12 Right handed and 2 Left handed whistles until January, 2012.

Please specify if you are a Right or Left Handed player via e-mail when placing your order. 

If you play right hand bottom and left hand top, you are a Right Handed player.

If you play right hand top and left hand bottom, you are a Left Handed player.

Whistle comes with a color coded fingering chart and whistle tips and instructions sheet.  A quality custom made cleaning rod and beeswax tablet are included to use for maintaining your new whistle.

Good & Plenty C Whistle

Good and plenty C gif 

The Good and Plenty C whistle is the result of receiving so many requests for a back to basics whistle. Many folks asked for an easy to clean whistle with accurate tuning, no tuning slide, and an extra smooth bore for the best sound possible.

I received this email from a whistler in Pennsylvania who lives near Lancaster in the midst of Amish country. Here is an excerpt of his letter.

“I recently was waiting for my wife to do some shopping in a road side furniture store near Lancaster, PA. I got tired of sitting in the car , so I ambled over to where there were some rocking chairs for sale and took my whistle along for company. I bought the Traveler, Low A in October and I carry it on the road while I call on accounts.
There were no customers outside the shop, so I settled in to play a tune or two and probably had been playing a full ten minutes when I noticed I had an audience of two Amish children of about ten. I stopped playing and said hello and they responded that they liked my music and settled in to hear another piece. I had played a couple of my favorite songs when their father showed up and with a nod invited me to play some more.


I played for a bit more and then took a break and showed the two children the whistle and how it played. The father looked the whistle over and asked me if it had a name and I replied it was a WhistleSmith. He smiled and said ” I think you should call it ‘the Good and Plenty!’ because it plays plenty well and good too!” Thought you would enjoy hearing that you have an Amish admirer of your whistle. As you can tell I think this a great whistle to take on the road too.

The Good & Plenty whistle series is a nice addition to anyone’s collection and is in stock for at once shipping.


The Good and Plenty C is made with a single piece body of ultra white polymer pipe with a dark grey poly plug and removable top cap for quick and easy cleaning of the mouthpiece.
Whistle is 12.5” long overall.
The tone body has large finger holes with a small hands reach between holes. Comfortable for folks with extra large hands because of the larger diameter tone body. Large finger holes make half holing notes easy and adds to volume and ornamentation possibilities.
The mouthpiece slides apart for easy cleaning and clips in place with improved snap action.

The Good & Plenty Whistle has a rich, full tone and plenty of volume. This is a whistle that will take powerful playing and still play with minimal breath requirements. Light, sharp tonguing will bring out the clarity of the Good & Plenty with the tone and precise pitch you have been looking for.
This whistle is perfect for playing in the Key of C, F, and Dm with no cross fingering to learn.

This is a take any where whistle that will play in all kinds of weather and temperature conditions and can take years of play with little or no effect on fit and finish.

Whistle comes with a color coded fingering chart and whistle tips and instructions sheet. A quality cleaning rod and beeswax tablet are included for maintaining your new whistle.

What is the difference between a Thumb Post and a Thumb Ring?

 

 

Thum rings

This is The WhistleSmith Thumb ring that snaps to the barrel of the whistle and rotates for most comfortable playing position. Some folks would like a Thumb ring for both hands so I am listing them as an individual item. Low whistles and flutes take a large ring and Hi whistles and flutes use a small ring. WhistleSmith Thumb rings are made to fit WhistleSmith whistles and flutes. Pick Thumb ring size to fit your whistle and Add it to Your Cart. We will ship your Thumb ring with your whistle order

Thumb ring size

I recently received a note from a music teacher who instructs both children and adults on playing the whistle. She was not familiar with the thumb ring and asked if I would explain how a thumb ring was constructed and how it works versus a thumb post.

I do not make a thumb post, however some makers include them with their whistles. A thumb post snaps onto your whistle and will keep your whistle from rolling and falling off a table. However, a thumb post has little value for holding your whistle. Thumb posts are generally injected molded and tend to break if snapped on and off the whistle frequently.

The WhistleSmith thumb ring is made from schedule 40 pipe and hand riveted together to make a very strong clip and ring combination. There are 20 steps involved in making a single thumb ring and each step is done by hand. WhistleSmith thumb rings are made to last, but can be easily repaired with common tools if necessary.

Here are some advantages to using a WhistleSmith thumb ring.

1. The WhistleSmith thumb ring is a full circle ring for your thumb. The ring swivels on a clip which snaps onto your whistle to allow movement and angle adjustment to the ring for the most comfortable playing position.

2. You have a solid grip on your whistle without having to practice fingering positions when using the thumb ring.

3. The thumb ring prevents your whistle from rolling off the counter or table top if you lay it down.

4. The thumb ring lets you hang your whistle on a cup hook or a wall pin when you are not playing. This provides a secure storage for your whistle and keeps it out of harms way.

5. Playing with a thumb ring improves your technical skills by eliminating learning hand grips when playing with all the holes open on your whistle.

6. You will not drop your whistle when you are playing because your lips anchor the end of your whistle and the thumb ring hold the body securely.

7. Confidence is a large part of playing your whistle. You need to know your whistle is held securely and cannot be dropped by accident when playing in front of an audience!

8. You can use a thumb ring on either hand. Place the thumb ring where you like it best. You can use a thumb ring on both hands at once if you wish!
