Features Standard on All Susato Pennywhistles:
Constructed entirely from a series of injected molded ABS plastic parts, which are either CNC milled or turned for final modifications (such as the milling of tone holes) all to tolerances within 1/1000th of an inch. ABS Plastic is an ideal material for wind instruments as it is a poor heat conductor, ensuring stable pitch, and is impervious to moisture.
Curved windway and labium enhance playability and tone.
Ergonomic oval tone holes used where they are easier to seal than round ones.
Certain pitches (High Eb, High D, Bb and Low F) are available in two different bore sizes. (See “A Note on Bore Sizes ” Below)
Keys available on lower pitched whistles for easier reach. (See “A Note on Keys” Below)
