The Origional Clarke Penny Whistle
My mom went to a story to get my brother a harmonica, and she saw an interesting looking tin-whistle on display. So she picked it up and blew on it.
Any way, to make a long story short, we are now in position of that tin-whistle, and I had some questions about it’s quality. It is Clarke penny whistle (supposedly the original design), crafted in tin plate with a wooden mouth piece and a tapering bore.
Does the wooden mouth piece effect how it will sound over time? What is your opinion of the wooden piece? And what exactly does the tapering do to the sound? (and again, you opinion)
