Surprisingly good sound and build quality, definitely not just a toy. It's easy to overblow this (and many other) whistles of this type, so take it easy. A tiny, tiny bit of very light lube (like clarinet bore oil or similar) might be necessary to get the slide and piston working just right. Fortunately, the far end can screw off to do just that. Ours was pretty good right out of the box, though. The pitch is right in the vocal range which is handy for either music or sound effects. meaning that it will sit well in a mix. Very controllable too.

This whistle is worse sounding than the cheap plastic one I purchased. It looks and feels great, but I did not buy it to put down on the coffee table. It has a small range in the middle, but the higher notes and lower ones are not clear. The slide does not work smoothly, which makes it very difficult to land the right note. I am very disappointed in the whistle. With my cheap whistle I can play pretty well, but with this one everything is a challenge. No, I would not buy it again!

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    When played slowly, the slide catches incrementally, making it impossible to smoothly slide between notes.

    Slide sticks in current position - difficult to play a tune. Very sensitive to air volume - easily shifts to higher harmonic. Sorry I didn't read reviews prior to purchasing...

    Pros

    • Looks Solidly Built

    • Action Is Not Smooth

    Best Uses

    • As a toy

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    It came in one week and looked impresssive out of the box, but the action catches so that it is difficult to play songs on it. I put lots of valve oil in it, but it did not solve the problem. It cost so little that I am not bothering to send it back.

    Just Okay

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    These flutes do not speak well in the low end. You can sometimes get the lowest note by sliding down to it, but if you try to start on it, you either get overtones or airy noise.

    Great looks, decent function

    By Laura Jean Pulscher

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    I recommend it anyway.
    This is a solidly constructed slide whistle. The lower tones sound great, but the higher register sounds breathy.

    A toy for the professional

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    Although this is a staple for any sound effects engineer, it's also quite useful for playing melodies. It sounds quite a bit better than a cheap plastic whistle, and has a very professional appearance due to the all-metal construction. It's also very reasonably priced. Buy it.

    Grover-trophy slide whistle

    By Lindiann Gamber

    from colorado

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    Inexpensive, easy to use and "play" with.
    I bought this whistle as a request from my 38-yr-old, married-with-two-toddlers son. He loves "toys" and this absolutely fit the bill. The price is right, and amount of fun it he had with it (and will continue to have with the two kiddos for years to come) made it a perfect stocking stuffer. I only wish I'd bought one for each of the guys in the family. Prolly will next year. It has a pretty sound, not cheap or tinny. I highly recommend this instrument for an inexpensive gift for adults and kids alike. It would also be a good present for a child to take to a birthday party. It's a unique present that a child would have for years. Good to keep one on hand when you don't have time to go to the store and buy a child a present to take
    Great value for fun and something that will last
