George Ormiston African Blackwood Whistle
George Ormiston's whistles look and sound beautiful, and easily produce a rich, clear tone throughout the instrument's range. The whistle bodies are interchangeable, meaning it is possible to buy a D whistle and also an Eb and C body, with the headjoint being used on any of the bodies.
"The whistles have a full volume and a ‘clean’ sound all the way through the two octaves; this can be useful in a session. Players have commented on ‘the good, clear, in tune cross-fingered C natural as well as the G# in the second octave’. The special design of the mouthpiece allows the player excellent control over the full sound of this instrument.
Each whistle is made from African Blackwood and sterling silver (925) and has a tuning slide. They have a rich, warm sound with plenty of volume. The mouth piece has a curved radius at the back so that it fits comfortably."
