     Clare whistles are made in County Clare, Ireland by David LeBas. It's made of brass with a plastic mouthpiece. The mouthpiece isn't glued on, so this whistle is somewhat tunable (see the notes about tunable inexpensive whistles on our Make it Tunable Page), but the mouthpiece fits snuggly - it won't slip while playing. The two piece feature (see pic below) also allows for some additional tuning, as well as making it easy to carry around in your pocket or purse.

The Freeman tweaked two-piece, key of D Clare is the perfect whistle to take everywhere. Fits in a pocket, plays beautifully, with the legendary Freeman clarity and responsiveness. Jerry has voiced this whistle to match the vintage Generation voicing, a little sweeter/purer than currently produced Generations and off-the-shelf Clares, like the best of the whistles Generation made before the design change in the 1980ís. A classic, pure-drop authentic sound for Irish Traditional Music, and a wonderful whistle for every style of playing. Well balanced between registers, clean playing and responsive. A great whistle you should never leave home without."

These whistles are available with a red mouthpiece or a black mouthpiece. The only difference between the two is the color (the tone and playability are the same).

 

   If you've seen the live performance or the video of Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance, then you've seen a Clare Two Piece Model before. This is the whistle that Michael Flatley "restored" for the Little Spirit, after the Little Spirit's whistle was "broken" in two pieces...

 

This whistle is an excellent choice for beginners - it plays very well in both octaves.
