Low whistles are airy. Its basically a tube of air with holes in. Still nice sounding, unique

Keith:

That ones got a nice tone to it too, & has that sort of haunting/breathy sound that goes well with aires & the like - at least, I think so.


I actually find it a bit too breathy,weak sounding compared to tenor recorder

I just can't get to grips with the low D. Its the botton hole. How people plays these fast is beyond me.

The low D has arrived. Not had chance to play it yet but its oh so shiny, and the Piper's grip takes some getting used to.

@keith well...its just I'm not very good at it and its probably not a very good instrument (cost me £5) Plus its more for playing blues and country, and getting clean notes, especially playing chromatically, is hard. Recorder is just easier.

@keith I had a tenor, briefly, but it was uncomfortable to play and I sold to a friend on Facebook. I would like to get another in the future tho, possibly with keys
