I have been playing all types of whistles for a long time but never a low D whistle, so i done some research and came across the Chieftain custom low d, so i took a chance and ordered one,
Pros- beautiful looking, nice weight, and a superb deep sound,
the holes are closer together so making it easy to handle
Cons- price was more than i ever paid for a whistle but worth every penny,

Gutes Instrument - mit Schwächen
WhisT, 06.09.2020
Ich habe nach einer Weile meine Bewertung der Chieftain Custom noch einmal überarbeitet. Grundsätzlich bin ich immer noch davon überzeugt, dass es sich um ein solides Instrument handelt. Leider hat die Whistle auch ein paar Schwächen.
Die Verarbeitung des Tuning-Slides ist Top - da gibt es nichts zu meckern. Ohne irgendwelche zusätzlichen Dichtmittel sitzen die beiden Teile der Whistle super und lassen sich (mit etwas Fett dazwischen) perfekt Tunen. Der Flötenkopf hat - innen - ein paar unschöne Ecken, an denen sich gern etwas "Siff" sammelt. DAS ist weniger schön.
Die Spielbarkeit der Whistle ist für mich etwas durchwachsen. Da ich inzwischen die Möglichkeit hatte mit Konkurrenzprodukten zu vergleichen, muss ich sagen, dass mich vor allem die Ansprache in der zweiten Oktave stört. Die Whistle spielt sich nicht konsistent, sie braucht in der zweiten Oktave vergleichsweise sehr viel Luft um in Tune zu sein (mit einem Stimmgerät kontrolliert!). Dabei wird sie dann im Vergleich zur eher schwachen ersten Oktave sehr laut.
Mein Fazit ist:
Ein solides Instrument mit - gerade bei diesem Preis - deutlichen Schwächen.

Superbe instrument
A. Mah, 06.03.2021
L'instrument est très beau et bien construit. Il donne envie d'être pris en main, d'être joué. La justesse est plutôt bonne, mais toujours relative, comme tous les low whistles. La gamme est plus ou moins relative du fait du tempérament du répertoire irlandais, mais plutôt équilibrée. L'accès aux aigus facile. Je recommande cet instrument.
Et le service Thomann au top.

A good low D
Dumbledorf, 25.06.2020
The top notes in the second octave take a bit more power to play than I'd like, otherwise I think this whistle plays well enough. It has more back pressure and requires more force than some, but it's not a problem IMO.

The sound is a half-way compromise between "open" and "veiled", which is why I chose it. It's dark, but still with a hint of top end so it's not totally dull, and with just the right amount of chuff and wind noise to give it some character. This is what I think a low D should sound like, if your taste is different, pick something else!

The build is top notch, and it looks and feels great.

It's not a perfect instrument, but it's mostly good! All whistles are compromises anyway, so don't fret about minor imperfections, just pick one you like the basic tonal character of and accept it for what it is!
