        Comments about American Slide Whistle:

        This is a great, inexpensive instrument that anyone like me without any musical talent can have some fun with. I imagine that someone with some talent could really get some good sounds out of this. This instrument is very well built and is a great deal for the money. I think that a child could drive a household crazy with this, but he/she will have a blast doing it.

          Comments about American Slide Whistle:

          My daughter had just started to play a slid whistle in her school class. They have plastic ones and she said she wanted one for Christmass. I knew you guys had them so I ordered. When we got it I was impressed with the quality that it has, she will use it for a long, long time.

              This is a fabulous tool for adding sound effects to story reading in classrooms....kids love to play it, and they're reading at the same time. This is in addition to just plain playing around with it. Also, this is a heavyweight, high quality instrument....thanks!

                    My husband had one like this except with one exception, the slide had a wooden knob to hold.
                    It's fun to have a toy or whistle from the past.

                          My grandchildren and I have a family marching band. These slide whistles are a perfect addition to our jingle bells and tamborines. We love them!
