Tin whistles

The Tin whistle or penny whistle is so named because the instrument looks like a penny and was commonly sold in tins (unlike sack and crate whistles). Likely derived from the flageolet this member of the fipple family can only be firmly dated to the middle of the 19th century when the Clark family began producing them (1843). A light and airy instrument the whistle was both portable and malleable. This is important because any person who has experienced a small child with one would relish the opportunity carry it somewhere and beat it into a thin sheet. Whistles come in many keys ranging from the very annoying to intensely annoying
