Goldfinch Whistle - Low F

Low F Goldfinch Whistle


tunable; natural fingering: oxx ooo

main keys to play in: F, Dm, Gm, Bb

individual serial number on the fipple part

materials: CPVC, delrin; colour: ivory

bore diameter: ≈28 mm; length when tuned: ≈49 cm

An excellent expansion of your pennywhistle arsenal for live music and recording, the Low F is the highest low whistle key we make. It is a powerful, large-bore instrument that offers a wide dynamics spectrum, high volume and full timbre across the two octaves, which makes it a great choice for slower melodies or song accompaniment. When compared to our most popular Low D, it requires slightly more push to reach the highest notes, in exchange giving great dynamics control and stability. What is more, the holes of the Low F are significantly closer to each other, thus making is much easier to play for people with smaller hands or those not well familiarised with the piper’s grip.

A smaller cousin of the Low D, Low Eb Goldfinch Whistle is an instrument that breaks with the standard D-oriented session keys with freshness and comfortable playability. Subtle backpressure and little air requirements make the octave jumps easy and precise while the lower register pays off with deep sound, making the whistle suitable for both slow and fast-paced melodies and accompaniment. We do our best to keep it balanced throughout the whole scale for best control. Weather-proof and fine-tuned, the hole size allows for application of half-holing techniques to all those, who want to expand their scale even further. The timbre is solid, with but a little airy touch invaluable for creating spacy atmosphere. Recommended for both advanced players looking for a reliable whistle and people planning to begin their adventure with low whistles and the piper’s grip, Low Eb Goldfinch Whistle plays well on recordings, live performances and the magical Eb sessions.
