|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.
