Scottish Tin Whistles

The whistle is a simple member of the flute family which has been played for centuries. There are bone whistle-like instruments that have been found from 180,000 years ago; more recent bone flutes have been found in Dublin from the 12th century, and the Tusculum whistle in the Museum of Scotland made of brass or bronze, found with pottery dating from the 14th and 15th centuries (the Tusculum whistle, excavated in North Berwick in 1907, is 14cm long and has six finger holes). Other whistles have been made from clay, wood and reeds, but the principal for making the whistle sound is always the same: a narrow gap is created in a mouthpiece through which air is blown, and holes in the barrel are stopped or opened to vary the pitch.
