Lovely tone, fast fingering, enjoyable to play
This Blackbird Eb is my new favorite whistle. I was buying a couple of other whistles from Jerry and tossed this one in because I was curious. Every single one of my Freeman tweaked whistles (low G, alto A, C (mellow dog and blackbird,) D mellow dog, and this little Eb) play and sound great. I have a few higher-dollar whistles, but I always come back to my Freemans, and especially the Eb. It is absolutely lovely and not at all harsh or piercing as I thought it might be. I'm still a beginner and working my way through the end of Mary Bergin's Vol 1 tutorial. Having the extra whistles in different keys makes practicing and playing fun. I play the other keys as if they were D whistles.
I've had the Blackbird Eb for a few months now and it remains my go-to whistle for fun playing.
