Wooden & Plastic Slide (Swannee) Whistles Compared

This isn't necessarily CBG-related but I thought some folks would find it interesting.

As a viewer suggested, I decided to compare a cheap plastic slide whistle (the kind from Amazon) to a Schylling wooden whistle. If you've ever wondered what they sound like side-by-side... wonder no more. They both sound pretty good, just very different.

I like the wood one better Kale! It has a richer tone. But the plastic one sounds good too; seems to have a higher pitch. Interesting video.
