On this episode of Wizard Gear I’ll be showing you my Carbon Fiber Penny Whistle, and playing it a bit of music on it for you.
The Penny Whistle is generally thought to be native to the British Isles, but this type of simple flute can be found in many cultures across the world. It’s essentially a hollow tube with holes in it, which can be crafted from various materials such as bamboo, bone, etc.
I’ve played many instruments in my life, but the Penny Whistle became necessary when I was a minimalist nomad for over a year. It fits easily into a backpack, and the material of this flute isn’t effected by the elements.
There are lots of places to pick up a Penny Whistle, but if you want the same one in the video, you can find them here:
Thanks for watching!
