In the alto and low whistles that we normally produce, the fingerholes are offset as depicted in image A. This disposition aims to facilitate the reaching of the holes with your fingertips if you place your left hand above and your right hand below. If you need this offset to be inverted (image B, right hand above - left hand below), or the fingerholes to be inline (image C), we will have to make an instrument adapted for that purpose.
The penny whistle is an indirect blowing flute, widely employed in traditional Irish music. It has six fingerholes, and its mouthpiece is similar to the recorder.
According to their register, they are classified into tin, alto and low whistles (i. e. soprano, alto/tenor and bass respectively). C Major and D Major tin whistles are the most common ones. The D Major low whistle (tuned one octave below) is also a quite popular instrument.
Our penny whistles have a metal body and a hardwood mouthpiece. Its extension is two and a half octaves wide, chromatic alterations being possible.
