            All of the ACME products are great, don't cheap-out and try and spend less. You really do get what you pay for.

            The best part is the MF site shipping estimate. I'm traveling in different cities almost every day, and needed to make sure it would arrive asap in Tulsa, where I had a generous 36-hour window. The site said it would get there with 2-day express shipping, so I ordered late in the day on a Thursday, and it was waiting for me on Monday. With all due credit to the post office, MF processed my order immediately and that certainly sped things along. Thank you!

              Legendary Acme build quality, it should last for just about ever. But mine didn't work when I received it. However the business portion inside, a spinning disc, is on an axle with needle berarings on each end. The pressure on the bearings is adjustable with a small wrench. Even once I got it loosened up and spinning freely, this thing takes a LOT of wind to get going. As such it's more of the two or three puffs with a gradually ascending pitch kind of proposition. Expect to take several seconds to get it up to full pitch and volume.

              That is fine, if that is what you want, but it's not the kind of thing that you can use as punctuation in, say, a musical piece, due to the slow attack and decay, Not to mention the very large amount of wind it takes to get it going. Probably better for video, cartoon and general sound effects work.

              We bought this to replace a 50 cent toy one that is, well, a toy. But that one gets up to pitch almost instantly and is an octave or so higher, which suits our needs better. I guess we'll try to find another for a spare.

                We use it for the middle of "Runnin'with The Devil" by VH. Solid whistle.

                  If you're a sound effects engineer, you need this. It isn't particularly useful for emulating police sirens, but the classic goofy sounds this makes are extremely varied and quite useful. Excellent for adding a bizarre or cartoonish mood to your music (Brian Wilson seems to be quite fond of them). It's a bit pricey for a whistle, but all in all this is a worthwhile purchase.
