Thread Name: Tune A Penny Whistle?
Subject: RE: Help: Tune A Penny Whistle?
A friend plays a "BIG" whistle (low D, I think). The problem with something of that size is that if you start playing with it cold, it moght be in tune, but as your breath warms it up it slowly gets flatter in pitch, so during a gig he needs to re-tune it at intervals until it reaches its maximum expansion.
