Dolce-Duo Double Whistle
This is a totally unique tunable whistle from Susato - two Oriole whistle heads are attached together at an angle, making a double whistle!
The "Dolce-Duo D Double Whistle" that we sell has one regular S-series Oriole Soprano D body, and one S-series Oriole Soprano D body that only plays the notes D, E, F# and G (of course, half-holing and cross-fingering can produce other notes also). You can play either whistle individually (by simply repositioning your mouth), or you can play both whistles together for harmonies. If you position both whistle bodies just right, you can even hold your fingers flat across the lower three notes on both whistles, allowing you to play those notes in unison (this definitely takes some practice...).
The double mouthpiece will accept any Oriole-style Susato body, including Oriole whistles, tabor pipes and pentacorders (all in any key) allowing for almost unlimited harmonic possibilities.
If you're new to whistles, we always
recommend a basic Soprano D as your first whistle. See our Beginner's Section for
information on this.
