Tolle Low-Whistle mit sattem Ton
SyMoon, 26.03.2020
SOUND / ANSPRACHE: In der Tiefe sehr voluminös, mystisch-hauchig (breathy), spricht in der zweiten Oktave überraschend leicht an, hat dabei oben echt Power und Leuchtkraft bei insgesamt moderatem Atemdruck. Die Thunderbird Mezzo-D tunable, ebenfalls von Phil Hardy, obwohl kleiner, benötigt in der oberen Oktave vergleichsweise viel mehr Anblasdruck.
EINSATZ / SPIELBARKEIT: Die Alto G klingt phantastisch für Slow Airs, mischt sich prima mit Gesang und setzt sich auch im Ensemble gut durch. Sie ist eine gut spielbare Alternative zur größeren und tieferen Low-D-Whistle, da die Grifflöcher der Alto G nicht ganz so weit auseinander liegen. Sie lässt sich je nach Größe und Dehnbarkeit der Hände gerade noch mit den Fingerkuppen spielen, ist aber mit „Pipers Grip“ für schnelle Jigs viel komfortabler und beweglicher zu handhaben. Es braucht jedoch einige Übung bis sich Kopf und Finger an Position und Anstellwinkel gewöhnt haben. Die Grifflöcher sind recht groß, was Slide-Effekte und ein präzises chromatisches Spiel erleichtert, aber beim Abdecken anfänglich Schwierigkeiten machen kann. Sie ist definitiv kein Anfängerinstrument, aber eines was süchtig macht, denn mit ihr kann man, mit der entsprechenden Übung und Ausdauer, viele irre klangliche Effekte zaubern.
INTONATION / VERARBEITUNG: Die Alto G ist stimmbar (tunable), sauber intoniert, ihre beiden präzis und satt ineinander passenden Teile lassen bis zu einem halben Ton tiefer ohne Intonationsverlust auseinander drehen. Mundstück und Rohr sind aus dickem Aluminium. Bei 2 mm Wandstärke und 19 mm Innendurchmesser des Rohres, ein echt solides Instrument. Im schlanken Alu-Mundstück bildet sich typischerweise leicht Kondenswasser, daher mit der Hand oder unter die Achsel anwärmen und ggfs. Spalt zuhalten und durchpusten. Ihr eleganter Look und ihre sorgfältige Verarbeitung machen sie zu einem echten Hingucker. Meine Lieblings-Whistle kriegt von mir dicke 5 Sterne.

Flûte irlandaise en G
AlainK, 20.04.2020
J'achète d'habitude mes flûtes irlandaise chez Kerry Whistle.com en Angleterre.
Chez Thomann ce sont les mêmes en plus elles sont argentées et le tarif est plus abordable. Pour le moment je possède 7 flûtes non accordables dont certaines sont justes et d'autres pas. J'ai d'ailleurs déjà revendu ma flûte en G non accordable d'où mon achat.
Le problème c'est d'arriver à accorder la flûte, il faut sacrément tirer les deux tuyaux pour les faire coulisser. J'ai d'ailleurs retourné une flûte car je n'arrivais pas à faire coulisser les deux tuyaux.
La deuxième flûte était plus aisée à accorder. J'ai testé divers graisses pour rendre plus facile le coulissage pour l'accord. J'ai regardé des forums, téléphoné à Thomann et l'on m'a conseillé un graisse pour flûte et liège que j'ai achetée.
Après l'application de ce produit, le coulissage était plus facile mais au bout de quelques jours la graisse séchait et presque impossible de séparer les tuyaux. En désespoir de cause j'ai mis de la graisse pour les coulisses de ma trompette. Depuis c'est nickel. Les tuyaux coulissent même au bout d'un mois de non utilisation et la flûte me convient parfaitement, elle est très juste et s'accorde par exemple avec des orgues d'églises qui changent d'accord suivant la température.
Je cherche maintenant une kerrywhistle accordable en C . Thomann l'avait il y a deux mois mais ne la vend plus maintenant...

Despite its infamous classroom or beginner’s image, the recorder is in fact just as difficult to play well as most other instruments.
