The Clarke Original Tinwhistle – A beautiful tone
“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.
For all ages and abilities
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.
