The Generation Flageolet 6583 is a nickel-plated tin whistle in D, which is the most commonly used key. It is specifically suited for melodies in D major, although G major melodies shouldn’t be a problem either. In fact, with the necessary skills and technique you can produce any desired key with this 6-holed whistle. However, it is recommended that you change tin whistle when you change key. Tin whistles in all keys are available in our shop. These nickel-plated models are silver-coloured and sound a little clearer than their copper-coloured brass counterparts.
The popular Flageolet in D
The popular tin whistle, as we commonly call it, is also known as the Irish flageolet. Since they were first sold in the 19th century, they have become an integral part of Scottish and Irish folk music. They can also be heard in film soundtracks, folk rock and folk metal. Generation’s flageolets are used by both amateurs and professionals and are known for their clear, traditional sound.
