The favourite musical instrument of distinguished tinwhistle players ever since 1843, this Clarke Tinwhistle can be considered the Stradivarius of tinwhistles.
The instrument is still made of tin-plate with a wooden plug in the mouthpiece. Delicate operations continue to be done by hand and, most importantly, Robert Clarke’s traditional conical bore has been retained to give the instrument its unique “chiff”, sound. No other tinwhistle has the same degree of “chiff” as a Clarke.
Whistle comes in the key of D.
