Inspired by the musicians, artists, poets, beats & freaks, and the revolutionary energy that flowed through the streets of Greenwich Village, New York the epicentre of the folk music revival of the 1960s, Generation Music Ltd is proud to present the Boho Generation D Whistle.
The Generation Boho whistle is made in England. This whistle is packaged in a gift box, and comes with a detailed fingering chart/songsheet/mini-tutorial!
It is a brass whistle with a black plastic fipple (mouthpiece). The plastic fipple has become accepted by traditional whistle players over the years, because of the consistency of sound compared to a wooden fipple (wood can change tone when wet...). Brass whistles are usually known for their nice, warm tone.
The paisley design is added to the whistle using a hydrographics process. A PVA printed film that holds the pattern is floated onto a bath of water. The PVA is activated by a solution. The whistle body is then immersed into the water and the film seals itself around the whistle. The whistle body is then finished with a durable top coat. The result is a beautiful, unique whistle!
