"Mel Bay" Tin Whistle

Red Clarke "MEG"

A classic conical rolled-sheet-tin whistle with a plastic mouthpiece and fipple. This whistle is the least expensive whistle that really plays a true scale. Somewhat brighter, sharper sound than the "deluxe" classic Clarke (with wooden fipple), but the same conical rolled-metal body and sweet scale. The original Clarke in 1842 sold for half a penny and the word "Meg" was Victorian slang for a halfpenny. Odd, since in 1688 a Meg was a Guinea (21 shillings or 252 pennies). I guess it was deflation. Anyway, Clarke is now making a less expensive whistle and calling it the Meg. Today it costs 595 pennies American. The primary reason for this is that there was no plastic mouthpiece in Victorian times. Mel Bay has bought some of these as "White Labels" and put their own logo on them. And that's...the rest ofthe story.
