Escapee Tech: Why whistles squeak? (24) RE: Tech: Why whistles squeak? 30 May 08

The holes are punched from the outside side of the sheet metal. This leaves a burr on the inside of the whistle. I roll up a piece of sandpaper and polish the bore of my whistles. A de-burring tool would help too. I also follow Paul Burke's clean-up procedure on any plastic mouthpiece. It doesn't make me play any better, but it keeps me from sounding worse.
Fair winds,
