   This beautiful Rosewood Whistle  is made by Ralph Sweet of the Sweetheart Flute Company. Mr. Sweet pays great attention to detail, and it shows in the quality of his work. It is approx. 12" long, and tuned to the key of "D" (D and G are the most popular for traditional Irish music, this whistle plays easily in both keys).

    It is tunable, but made from one solid piece of Rosewood, so the wood grain matches perfectly, and gives the appearance of a one-piece whistle. It has a narrow, curved windway and produces a beautiful, flute-like tone in its entire two octave range.

 

   Sweetheart whistles are very strong in the lower register (even the low D is very solid). If you're looking for a whistle with the volume to keep up with other instruments in sessions this may be a good choice.

   Each of the two pieces of the whistle are marked with matching serial numbers.

  

 

 

Professional Model

The Professional Sweetheart D whistle has a tapered bore, a new windway design and a cork tuning slide. It has a great tone in both octaves, and is made of Laminated Northern Birch (that looks very much like Honduras Rosewood).

 

If you purchase a wooden instrument from us, we recommend that you take a look at the "Care of the Flute" Page at flute maker Terry McGee's website.
