Subject: RE: range of d penny whistle/note problems
A Tin Whistle or Penny Whistle (or to be REALLY pedantic the flageolet) will have a range of Two Full Octaves plus one note IF the
mouthpiece is working at all . The inexpensive ones can often have intonation problems AND problems getting a 'decent' note in some places . If the shop wont let you try it before you buy it , then you dont buy it !
