Whistles in D with easier second octave
Ok one of my first whistle in D was a Clarke Sweetone. One of the things I love about it, is how easy it is to play the second octave, without needing me to put too much air in it.
Later on I got a new whistle in D from a local luthier, and while the notes sound super nice, it’s much heavier than my Sweetone and it’s super hard to get to the second octave, I almost always miss the high G. I tried playing all the songs I use to play in my Sweetone and couldnt get the high g and above right, I have to put much more air to reach it. I thought maybe it was a matter of getting used to it, but it’s not working very well.
I consider myself a beginner still, I’ve beem playing for almost an year, though I didnt play for a long while due to health issues, but I really want to buy a new high D whistle, so my question here is which whistles in D that doesn’t require a lot air to reach the second octave? I play alone, so there’s no need for a whistle that is better for playing in session. I’ve heard of the Dixon 005, and the Killarney (heard the killarney are also heavy in comparision to other whistles so that worries me a bit).
