Introducing the Acme train whistle
The Acme train whistle has 3 pipes which have been tuned and 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.
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.Sound Sample
