Clarke The Original Tinwhistle
In The Key of D
The Clarke The Original Tinwhistle is an iconic piece of British folk history.
The tin whistle is a simple, traditional musical instrument; ideal for popular and folk music, but also suitable for a much wider musical repertoire.
It is just as good for solo playing as it is in ensemble with other musical instruments; and can be played by children, youth or adults alike.
Robust and easy to care for, the Clarke Tinwhistle has a long life.
Play it… enjoy it… and join the millions of fellow musicians who have had their start in music from the famous Clarke Tinwhistle.
“Crisp And Responsive”
The tone of the Clarke Original Tinwhistle is clear and flute-like, but has also described as “crisp and responsive” by Bill Ochs; and “husky and sensual” by Mary Bergin.
All these descriptions add up to “chiff”or what Tommy Makem calls, “The great Clarke tone”. This is what makes a Clarke Tinwhistle unique.
Each Original Tinwhistle is supplied with a fingering chart in a gift box.
