Not a whistle?
Well it's a fipple flute at any rate (being an end-blown flute - the fipple's the thing you blow through). It's a secondhand Yamaha descant recorder (Yes, the thing that little girls with pig-tails play at primary school. It cost me £4.50 inc. P&P from eBay). I brought it just out of interest to compare it's sound to that of a whistle). A very 'clean' tone. I think I prefer the 'chiffiness' of the whistle.
