Thread Name: Big Whistles - Little Fingers
Subject: RE: Help: Big Whistles - Little Fingers
should have said.. I have tried Howard Low F and G to see if I could manage them before even considering a D... had to send them back. A friend has a low D (not sure of the make..... looks like a huge bit of pipe with a green plastic mouthpiece)... can't reach the fingering on it at all.

My Low A is a Susato... beautiful tone... but as with any Susatos I have played ... very unreliable in the top octave...... wish they'd change the mouthpiece.

I have two Low G's cheapie wooden Indian whistles about $12 Aus. sound very breathy... but play OK.
