Captain, You are THE MAN! This works brilliantly. I made one and it is SO LOUD! I have now also experimented with a totally plastic one and although it is not as loud as the tin one, it does definitely whistle. My plastic one is made from some clear plastic from a tub and two milk bottle lids.

This would be a lot better if you included a template for the shape you cut out of the can.

Hah! This is great! What a fun idea. There are lots of things that are made out of and by the simplest things, and it only takes the incentive to turn that into something you can make unique. I'm definitely going to try this! Then, I think I'll work on a tin can penny-whistle. These would make great nerd-gifts. :D

I may just show how I made a wooden whistle.

Wow, I wouldn't have though this possible before today. L
I agree with Lemonie. We dont drink much beer in our house so I will have to ask my student pals to save bottle tops for me. Or perhaps try boring old plastic ones. Is the distance between the edge and the blowing bit critical?
Emsaid (author)  greensteam4 years ago
well I don't drink beer at all yet.... (I'm 14) I used soda caps, they are the same thing
Emsaid (author)  greensteam4 years ago
i dont get what your trying to say but do you mean the hole where the bead is ( if you use the diagram it will work)

Instead of bottle caps, try using your finger and thumb to cap the ends. You may need to play with the gap (fipple?) by pushing the mouthpiece in with your lips.

Close tothis. : )

Are there any sharp edges that could cut lips or tongue? Could it be made of something more durable than aluminum from a soda can?
Emsaid (author)  Phil B4 years ago
you could probably make it out of a soup can. (There are no sharp edges)
