The Ruru is a handcrafted low penny whistle in the key of D major, an octave
lower than whistles like the Clarke Sweetone. This is a big whistle and is not
recommended for beginners.

These whistles are tough, made from PVC and wood. They feature:
* A small bell which helps improve the volume of the lower notes of each
octave compared to the higher ones.
* They also have a curved lip against which the air is directed like a
classical flute, rather than a straight one, giving a distinctive mellow and
slightly 'breathy' tone.
* The Ruru features an aluminium 'transport' joint that allows the bell
section to be rotated. This feature allows the optimum offset on the lowest
hole (E) to be obtained for any player, left or right handed.
* Each whistle is carefully hand tuned to concert pitch A=440Hz, within the
limits of variable air temperature and how hard you blow.
* The range is at least two octaves, D4 to C#6.
* My whistle has a very comfortable mouthpiece shape compared to many PVC or
aluminium whistles.
* A demo of this whistle is on YouTube here

* Since my instruments are handcrafted to order, the processing time will
depend on the number of orders, current workload and other factors such as
lockdowns. Check the estimated delivery time given by Etsy for the current
processing time.
* Sorry, photo props are not included! :-)
* Wooden parts are made from reclaimed timber, or from wood cut from my own
* My standard shipping method is via semi-tracked international airmail.
Delivery is usually less than two weeks, but may take much longer due to the
global pandemic.
* If an order has not arrived within 45 days of shipping notification, contact
me and I will post another.
* Some countries may charge relevant taxes such as GST or VAT and/or further
postal charges
* Specifications may be subject to change without notice.
