Anyone who has been playing a whistle for some time gets tired of it lying around on the table, this allows instant picking up which will aid your learning. If it is there staring you in the face you will use it.

Delicate operations still continue to be done by hand and, most importantly, Robert Clarke’s traditional conical bore has been retained to give the instrument its unique sound, called ‘chiff ’. No other Tinwhistle has the same degree of ‘chiff ’ as a Clarke.

The tone of the Clarke Tinwhistle is clear and flute-like, but it is also described as ‘crisp and responsive’ by Bill Ochs, and ‘husky and sensual’ by Mary Bergin. All these descriptions add up to ‘chiff ’ – what Tommy Makem calls ‘The great Clarke tone’. This is what makes a Clarke Tinwhistle unique.
