piano blues, 31.10.2020
ce whistle est à mi chemin entre le thunderbird ( sonorité un peu métallique) et les MK pro(sonorité plus proche des flutes ) ; avec la juste back pressure . exellent low whistle .

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.

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!

Je reviens sur ma déception initiale, ( cela venait de moi) après quelques mois de pratique, je me suis adapté à la flûte et celle-ci m' apporte désormais beaucoup de plaisir...
Les basses rendent un peu moins en puissance que les mediums ou aigus, mais je parviens à les maîtriser...
