How to Make an Irish Penny Whistle (Tutorial)

My dad making an Irish penny whistle. He's been making and selling them for quite a few years now. Check him out at www.beckerwhistles.com! This is a project I did for my Broadcast Journalism class.

(It was very difficult to cut the process down to 5 minutes. Started out with 25 minutes of footage.)

That was really good. What type of PVC/CPVC pipe does he use? Could you
give me the schedule, and the number of psi the pipe uses?

Very good video! but I'm hard to make the holes. would pass that
information for me? distance, diameter of the holes. and total length of
the flute. thank you very much!

3:05-3:10 "Im drawing a center line so we can measure where the sound holes
go" *just draws a bunch of random lines* <-- Thats experience right there.
He just knows... lol He should put gold or silver foil on the outside.. Its
the only way I can think of to improve em.. and thats just aesthetics,
truely a matter of personal opinion/preferance/desire. I wouldnt care what
it looked like when it sounds that great!

Thank you so much! Will check it out. :-))

Hi Paula, my dad says if you look up low tech whistles and Guido Gonzato,
you can find measurements that are close. Thanks for watching and
commenting! :)

Автор Paula Carrigan ( назад)
This is fantastic!!! I'm going to try this out. Is there a standard
hole-size and placement per hole down the whistle? Thanks so much for this
tutor!!! The whistles sound great. I play myself and would like to make my
own whistles. Paula

He should try to make a native american flute next. I started making them
with my students. They are fun to play too. I have a video of how I started
making them if you want to look.

2:54 That's a melody I listened to on radio! What is its name?

My Bb just arrived, I live on Dartmoor in England. What a great sound,
really mellow, just the tone I have been looking for. Highly recommended,
and real value for money. I shall be buying other keys, and recommending
them to my whistle group.

Those are very nice, but you might want to consider switching to tin or
copper tubing. CPVC and PVC plastics are harmful to the lungs, and can
cause cancerous growths or breathing difficulties.

I love it ....now make the 25 mins into 3 videos so i can learn whistle
kung fu ...I have bamboo growing local and have been dreaming of making
whistles and fifes...Wisdom isn't knowing, its sharing what you know so
tradition lives on, so spirit lives on. Teach just one man to make music
instruments and a community learns to sing in harmony..

Hey rjjajimenez! My dad says there are some details on a guy's website
called gg whistles.com. My dad used those as a starting place and had to
adjust them for the American diameter of PVC pipe.
