Introducing the Acme triple tone train whistle
The Acme locomotive whistle has 3 pipes which have been tuned roughly to a Dm triad (F5, A5, D6) and polished by hand. Being tuned in this was helps it to mimic the whistle on an old American steam train. Each low pitch is generated by a metal organ pipe with a durable plastic mouthpiece.
Originally used on the Leicester and Swannington railway line, this traditional model has been in use since the early 1900s and would make a great addition to any percussionist’s kit bag.
Made in the UK
Acme whistles are manufactured in Birmingham and were carefully developed over a number of years. Outstanding craftsmanship and strict quality testing ensure every whistle is of the highest standard.Audio Sample
