Not so much recorder, here, but I too got a strong first impression that the instrument might not be a pennywhistle - or at least in some way not a standard one (whatever that means, these days). Might've been the recording situation.


Oh, it's a whistle alright. Check this out:

It's just that it had all its life processed and compressed out of it.

I actually said that to my husband yesterday! Yes I think it does sound like a recorder :-)

I think it's recorder style playing, but on whistle.

So while we are talking about whistle tones... I made my first low whistle yesterday, and I think it came out pretty good. But. I'm worried it sounds like a recorder or a susato. It probobly doesnt but I'm used to hearing mixed low whistles with reverb on youtube (think any kerry whistles demo. He bare minimum goes into a reverberant room to demo), so hearing mine sounds different than I expected. But it probobly sounds relatively normal.

Heres my super dry mic'ed no effort demo play

Heres an image for anyone interested.

Overall I'm super happy with it, and its playability is very good. Although high second octave definitely needs some extra push. And the mouthpiece is removable so I can make more bodies for other keys until I make more mouthpieces.

Ouch!

I think your whistle sounds like a whistle. Nice work!

I think to get a recorder tone you would have to use a recorder bore, which of course will mess up the 2nd octave.

I got 118 on that, not all that much faster than Breathnach's recommended 112.

However I've found that when I'm the one doing the playing a few ticks can seem huge!
