I wanted to take a minute to praise my Reviol Low F whistle. It's taken me a few weeks to settle in with this whistle, but, wow, what a great player. On the standard points of review I'd say: the volume is loud but not overly so, breath requirement is quite manageable, it does have a fair amount of back pressure, the intonation is very good with a standard 0XX 000 for the "c nat" that is spot on. Finger spacing is similar to my other whistles from top makers--nothing out of the norm. The craftsmanship is top notch. As someone pointed out on this board, you can see the small hammer marks from when Maurice formed the beak by hand! Really nice detail from hand crafted work.

The more I've played this whistle and now that I've mastered the octave jump, breath pressure and such, I've really come to enjoy the wonderful tone. I find it very appealing there is breathiness,"chiff" , and wonderful character. It has unique tone quality and expressiveness that is hard to describe--very much whistle like and not so much flute like in tone. It can be pushed to loudness and a firm presence or played softly with a more warm and round tone. I find that I'm not playing any other low whistles and I've ordered a Low D to add to my collection. Maurice produces a fantastic whistle.
