The lowest key among our narrow bore flageolets, the High C Goldfinch Whistle is comparable to High D whistler-friendly playability, with but enough backpressure for stability, moderate volume and comfortable air requirement. The scale of the whistle is balanced and – as in any Goldfinch Whistle – each note is fine-tuned individually for best precision. High C is a perfect choice for those, who wish to expand their key accessibility or just prefer a lower sounding whistle with equally easy fingerhole placement that anyone can tackle. It is a popular key for singers, so it might be especially handy to have one if you focus on accompanying vocal music. Human voice is a beautiful instrument, too!

What I find significant in Goldfinch Whistles is the capability of free, effortless playing in the “ups”, from the half of the second octave up to the third (from a2 to e3) while the sound quality of the lower register remains solid.
The sound is interesting and complex enough that is works beautifully amplified, recorded or purely acoustically. In fact my colleagues like the sound so much that we have transposed other sets just so we can keep using it.
The tone of my favourite models mid Bb and low F complement the saxophone perfectly, they are excellent in musical experiments across different genres.
There is no great gap between the lower and higher notes in pressure. Many experienced players appreciate it. Apart from that, the responsiveness, sweet tone and the whistle’s unique character are of utmost importance to me.
