The Fipple

As we blow into the fipple, our breath is directed down a narrow slot and directly on to a sharp edge which is the fipple blade which splits the air stream This causes it to vibrate as part of the air stream goes off the top and other part goes down the tube. It is this vibrating stream of the air reflecting off the inside surface of the body that we hear as our tone. The width of the blade has a lot to do with how the fipples performs. A Wider fipple blades demand a lot more air, however too narrow, the whistle will tend to chirp, that is gives off a high-end harmonic ( this is also caused by blowing too hard). The balance is so delicate that ever 1/16 of a inch makes a noticeable difference.
