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

Poor quality control

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

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    It does its job. The sound is a bit beefier than plastic whistles. Take care of it and this whistle should be the only one of its kind you'll seldom need.

    Comments about Grover-Trophy Slide Whistle:

    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!

    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...

            I've bought two, one for my son, and the other for my nephew. They do not have an irritating sound like the plastic ones. My son (12) loves his. My nephew is getting his for Christmas, so no reviews from him yet.

              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.

                    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.
