Ormiston High D Whistle – Pre-Owned


Out of stock


Pre-owned Ormiston High D Whistle in African blackwood.

This instrument oozes quality – not only aesthetically but also to hold and more particularly to blow.

One striking feature is the amount of backpressure available on this whistle. Sometimes it can be over done – and on other occasions there is not enough, which results in your articulation being somewhat sloppy. On this model there is a winning amount. Additionally we are impressed by the amount of dynamic control that can be obtained too. Ultimately it can whack out the volume or can quite easily sit comfortably with more sensitive dynamic levels.

The mouthpiece rests easily on the embouchure and the wooden under lip and silver trimmings and classy brass slide top off what is an absolute peach of a whistle.

Surely a prince amongst high whistles. Well done Mr. Ormiston!
