Introducing the Acme high pitch triple tone train whistle

The Acme triple tone whistle has 3 pipes which have been tuned roughly to an Am triad (E3, A3 and C4) and have been polished by hand. It produces a tri-tone dissonant chord just like the whistle on an old American steam train. Each low pitch is generated by a metal organ pipe with a durable plastic mouthpiece.

Also known as the Locomotive Whistle which originated, so the story goes, on the Leicester and Swannington Railway line, this traditional model has been in use since the early 1990s and makes a great addition to any percussionists kit bag

Hand made in the UK

To this day Acme police whistles are manufactured in Birmingham using the original techniques and machinery from the 1800s. Outstanding craftsmanship and strict quality testing ensure every whistle is of the highest standard.
