Help! Defective Clarke Sweetone?
Hello, I really didn’t know where else to ask so here we go. I just bought a Clarke Sweetone in D, I got many other recommendations but that was the most affordable one for me at this moment.
I couldn’t find a single store in my city (or the neighbour towns) that sells rin whistles so I had to rely on online purchasing.
Anyway, my whistle came today and I noticed something. When I look inside I can see a sheet of metal standing up. As if after rolling the metal to make the tube they didn’t flatt that part out. I’m sorry if it’s confusing, english isn’t my first languange, so I took photos to help.
Anyone that have this whistle can tell me if that’s normal? Is it supposed to be like this or should I worry about requesting the store to exchange/refund? I know some people will say this is a cheap whistle and I shouldn’t bother, but where I live that’s actually really hard to find and so it gets quite expensive due to shipping prices.
PS: this is just a completely unrelated questionand just out of curiosity so i thought it would be better to just ask here han open another discussion, but feel free to ignore. Why do we need to remove the first finger to play a high D? I blew it while having all holes closed and got the exact same note.
