Mid Bb Goldfinch Whistle, “The Piper’s Favourite”, is very versatile and strong, with a medium diameter bore in the Goldfinch tin whistle and low whistle arsenal. Bb is a popular key for (bag)pipes, so it is a perfect choice if one plans to play along. The whistle’s notes are rich in timbre and well balanced accross the octaves. Due to the close hole positioning, their large size and a little backpressure, it combines the swiftness and low air requirements of a pennywhistle with the dynamics and the tone of a low whistle, while piper’s grip is optional. Furthermore, the hole size facilitate half-holing techniques for those, who wish to expand the scale. Mid Bb fits Celtic music, with enough punch to underline the pulse of a reel, and other genres exceptionally well.

Mid A Goldfinch Whistle


tunable; natural fingering: oxx ooo

main keys to play in: A, D, Bm, F#m

individual serial number on the fipple part

materials: CPVC, delrin; colour: ivory

bore diameter: ≈18 mm; length when tuned: ≈40 cm

A useful key for Irish and Scottish traditional music, Mid A Goldfinch Whistle is a whistler-friendly choice combining the advantages of a high whistle – swiftness, playability – with those of a low whistle – subtle dynamics and lower, rich timbre. The large fingerholes pay off with a full sound, comfortable half-holing potential and, placed relatively close to each other, make the piper’s grip optional. Great for live music and professional recordings, the Mid A Goldfinch is well balanced between the octaves. It is equally fit to play both first-line foot-tapping tunes and song accompaniment. A little backpressure allows to hit the notes with precision and keep the air requirements low.
