I'm glad I purchased this whistle on the recommendation of Guy George. It is waterproof, tunable, and has a nice clear tone on the first octave (I haven't learned to control the second octave yet). Semi tones are easier on this as well. Highly recommended!
I bought a Susato Pennywhistle, Oriole Model, High D for my granddaughter who is a masterful flutist. She had been using a metal pennywhistle to play Irish jigs and reels, but it was a bit harsh and squeaky. When I gave her this Susato whistle and she ran through a few scales, we could both see that this was a great improvement over the metal whistle. And it is tunable. She loves it!
I picked up one of these at a dulcimer festival. It replaced a metal whistle that I had. This is easier to play, and has a clearer, less-harsh tone. Quality made.
Purchased this Pennywhistle at the recommendation of the instructor of a recent workshop. It is an "upgrade" from a metal pennywhistle...very pleased with the tone and ease of fingering.
Gift for my son. Came quickly and he says it's much better than the other brands he owns.
