Irish Celtic Wooden Tin Penny Whistle Holder & Clarke Celtic Tin Whistle Dark Green Key of D

The Tin Whistle holder is Handcrafted by an Irish Craftsman from locally sourced wood, it has many knots and markings and dark spalting lines making it a one off.

The holder is treated with Danish Oil for a warm to the touch satin finish.

With the clear silicon insert it is perfect for holding the tapered Clarke tin whistles.

For other sized whistles up to 17mm use the black insert.

Dimensions 9cms height x 7.5cms base and 5.5cms top.

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.

Includes the Clarke Celtic Irish Tin Penny Whistle with a gold coloured celtic knot and very dark green finish.

Each Tinwhistle is supplied with a fingering chart and is presented in a gift box.

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.
