An excellent expansion of your pennywhistle arsenal for live music and recording, the Low F is the highest low whistle key we make. It is a powerful, large-bore instrument that offers a wide dynamics spectrum, high volume and full timbre across the two octaves, which makes it a great choice for slower melodies or song accompaniment. When compared to our most popular Low D, it requires slightly more push to reach the highest notes, in exchange giving great dynamics control and stability. What is more, the holes of the Low F are significantly closer to each other, thus making is much easier to play for people with smaller hands or those not well familiarised with the pipers grip.

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.
