Shaw Whistles are traditionally built in rolled nickel plate. They are of conical bore and have a wooden underlip. Due to this build type, Shaws have a soft warm sound and intonation is consistently good. The breathy sound produced cannot be found in many other whistles and to this end they are quite distinctive. Dave Shaw, the maker, is an excellent musician and craftsman and voices all his whistles by hand. The product weight shown is the gross weight of the package.
Mr. Weyer says: This Whistle has a lovely breathy sound - but don't forget it is larger than a Soprano - hence the price difference.
