New whistle + care + other
Long time flute player (Sam Murray) ,..recently acquired a tin whistle and the whole thing is made out of aluminum and has a lovely tone. Just played it to get use to it and when I was finished I had aluminum residue on my fingers, thumb and mouth pieces so I’m here to ask a question as to the residue.
Anything to be done to stop this rub off onto me?
Can I coat it with some clear whatever- lacquere?
I mean, whats food-grade for this type of application?
I guess if it comes down to it I could live with the stuff on my hands and wash when finished. But my mouth, well??
I don’t want to eat aluminum the rest of my life. I’ve re-joined Chiff&fipple to see if I can get answers from there but my account isn’t active yet so, in the meantime I look to your insights. Anyone?
