Keith:

I can't play the one in the other thread, but I had a listen to one you posted on Chiff & Fipple, (I think it was), it sounds quite a nice instrument, but I missed the haunting kind of sound that I know they are capable of - enjoy.

Little improv


General penny whistle or music discussions

Strumelia:

Larry that's a really pretty little tune!  I like the trills you are doing.  You must name this tune, it has a forest/bird feel to it.  Maybe something lalong the lines of "Thrush in the Brambles" ...?

I find that improvising in the minor (in this Em on a D whistle) seems to flow more naturally than improvising in the major scale.

 


Thanks. Song Thrush, hmm

LarryS: I wanted to try the opposite with my boehm flute-fit a whistle head to it so I can play it and have a fully chromatic whistle!

It might be just possible, my TD alto whistle head 'just about' fits over the head of my Gemeinhardt, but you'd need a short length of tube between the two tubes, so that the fipple was in the right area, with about half an inch showing.

Might it be worth £15 for a head to try(?), I don't know, but I don't need to, as I shall be having another go on it & my piccolo once my embouchure is more stable.


Oh I pretty much gave up on flute embouchure. Just too hard

Bought myself a flute head & fitted it to my TD tunable aluminium 'A' whistle - my TD tunable aluminium 'C' whistle is also fitted with the flute head - so both my tunable whistles are temporarily now flutes.happydance

My main whistles still remain my low 'F', low 'D', alto 'A', & alto 'G' - with my 'C's & my high 'F' as grab up whistles. flute

I wanted to try the opposite with my boehm flute-fit a whistle head to it so I can play it and have a fully chromatic whistle!

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
