ceitagh Clean as a Whistle? (16) Clean as a Whistle? 18 Aug 00


hey all!

all you penny-whistlers out there....how do you keep your whistles clean and in good tune? I bought myself a complete set about a year back, and I'm finding that the whistles i use most often (the D and C) are starting to sound a little off, and don't reach the upper register as 'cleanly' as they once did. I never gave whistle-maintenance much thot before, i always lost them before that got to be a problem (oh, the whistles i've misplaced....and then there's the genuine tin handmade one that got sat on....ouch) but now i'm starting to think there must be someway of cleaning and keeping them in shape...any ideas or experience? Thanks muchly!
