THE REED SHAPE Great for Musicians,Bird Lovers,Collectors and Educators
..from the Rain Forest to your Lips !
Through the years, whistles have evolved into an important element of traditional Brazilian Samba.
Their unique and versatile musical voice has helped to shape the definitive musical sound and style commonly known today as "Latin" music.
Most interestingly, Samba whistles, many with triple tones and intricate rhythmic possibilities, have become a standard piece on the performing percussionists table.
Mine is authentic, handcrafted by Brazilian artisans,all done in fine Rosewood offering the very best in traditional Samba whistle design and tone.
Reed Shape Samba Whistle is a unique and powerful whistle , you have to blow it yourself to appreciate the sound it makes....one of my favorites this specific model is hard to find !
It emulates the sounds of Genus Tinamus from the Fingilidae family.....a bird whose size equals a Hen's.
It is very wild and one of its 5 different species. The males in general sing Flat and Quick. The females have a full long call.
They answer the call in the months of August Through November initiating with short spaced calls.
While waiting for an answer The Cricket , ie , Whistle #6 is used to attract other birds.....then the call is made to emulate a sort of cry/weep call by using Whistle Calls #4 or #29
A perfect gift for nature lovers , musicians, educators, collectors that appreciate a good conversation piece.
How to use in nature: Sometimes the macucos use a crying-like call, usually at the end of the evening when they are perching for sleep or while mating. For this reason, this call attracts many macucos. Remove the plug at the side of the bottom of the whistle where you will see a vibrating blade. With the blade arrested, engage the whistle with the mouth and give two or three short chirps. After, let the blade go and give a long chirp and repeat various times making sure there is a long space of time in between.
