Thread Name: Tuning an Irish whistle
Subject: RE: Tuning an Irish whistle
This thread continues to be a revelation. My old Rosetti wooden recorder which used to sing in the 60s had gone completely dumb and unplayable. But after an oiling as recommended (used lemon oil which happened to be handy - didn't really expect any change), she's found her voice again and is rivalling the plastic Yamahas and a one-piece German Hohner.
Got a new Clarke C whistle today which should be okay after a little tweaking. Bit disappointed in the workmanship - one side of the wooden block fits flush with the metal while the other projects almost a sixteenth inch.
Trouble is now I can't decide what to play.
