Walton's "Mellow D"
Key of D,
This is a Walton's Whistle - made in
Dublin, Ireland. It is tuned to the key of "D" - this is the most popular key
for traditional Irish music. It's made of brushed brass and has a plastic fipple
(mouthpiece). The plastic mouthpiece has become accepted and even preferred by most traditional players,
due to the consistency of sound that they produce.
There is a difference between this
whistle and the Walton's Irish Whistle, although the difference is slight. The Mellow D has a slightly wider
bore (the inside diameter of the whistle). This gives the Mellow D a tone that's well
suited for airs.
It is played very easily in the entire two octave
range, and has a pleasant, bright tone.
(Don't forget to order a Whistle Pouch for your whistle!)
