The Freeman Mellow Dog is a classic whistle.
It is known the world over - by folks that know - for its purity and quality of sound, yet amazingly it is still a budget instrument. That’s the beauty of Jerry Freeman’s whistles, sheer class for a modest financial investment.
The Mellow Dog has a wider body (similar to a High C Whistle) and produces a mellow and velvety timbre, but it still retains a sweet warm sound. The head of the Mellow Dog started life on a standard C whistle, whilst the body is made by Jerry himself.
It’s a favourite session instrument for Irish musicians who like to blow that bit harder – but don’t let that put you off if you’re an entry level musician. This is a great choice for the beginner - it’s still easy to play and handle yet still has characterful sound.
Here’s the C/D set, which has always been a popular combination here at Big Whistle. Two bodies one head. The C Mellow Dog tube is a standard body C whistle – unlike Mellow Dog (in D). The C Dog is exactly the same as a key of C Freeman Blackbird except for the brass tube and green colour of the top.
In a nutshell – a totally brilliant combi whistle C/D set - and yet again stunning for the cost.
Tweaked whistles may have slight marks on them from the tweaking stage, these marks will not have an impact on playability - but if you want a perfect looking whistle, you may be better avoiding a tweak.
