The Mountain Made Hi-D is here! A great Hi-D that plays the way WhistleSmith buyers said they wanted it made. Hundreds of feedbacks and players have had their say and The Mountain Made Hi-D fits the bill with all these features.
This is a Limited Edition whistle using precise tuning and hand work to make a very precise whistle. The Mountain Made Hi-D incorporates hours of development and feedback from folks all over the globe.
Whistle measures twelve inches long. The instrument is well balanced and feels substantial in your hand.
There is no tuning slide. Thus providing the cleanest playing bore possible. Tuning starts with a steel template and laser drilling of the finger holes. The foot of the whistle is bored larger to make octave shifts easy and precise.
The mouthpiece contains no wood or metal and the top slides completely off for cleaning and can be adjusted to best playing position on the top and bottom octaves.
Using light, precise tonguing will give clean, clear notes and runs. Breath requirements are minimal. The Mountain Made Hi-D lets you play in the Keys of D, G and Em without having to learn any tricky cross fingering. The Mountain Made Hi-D will play indoors at a session or outside in cold and windy conditions. This is a very handy whistle to add to your collection.
Straight Shot mouthpiece cap is made of SPIF white polymer with a top bevel for lip comfort. The mouthpiece and tone body are one piece and utilize a dark gray poly plug from IMG plastics. The tone body is a light tan color and a five color decal with clear wrap gives the whistle a coordinated color combination using just the natural colors of the materials.
The Mountain Made Hi-D has a rich, full sound you’ll enjoy, with balanced high and low octaves. There is plenty of volume for any type of playing and octave shifts are easy and precise.
