Product Description

This is a functioning head for a penny whistle.


To make your penny whistle, you'll need a length of hobby brass tube, such as can be obtained easily via eBay.


This head is sized to fit a tube with outside diameter of 17/32", and inside diameter of 1/2". These dimensions will produce a tone suitable for a "D" whistle.


To work out fingerhole size and placement, refer to Google, searching "Whistle Calculator", which will return a variety of links to tools that will allow you to calculate exactly how long the tube should be, and where the holes need to be in order to produce the scale of notes that you desire.


If you would like a head to custom sizes other than those already offered here, then please send the outside and inside diameters of the tubing you wish to use to :




On receipt of your sizes, a new head will be drawn. and you will receive an email containing a link once this has been posted to Shapeways.
