GUEST,Peter Laban Harmonica keys available in early days (20) RE: Harmonica keys available in early days 07 Oct 18


'Think of Clarkes Tin Whistles, which at one point were the only ones you could buy, being in C only.'

I don't think that is actually correct.

Clarkes weren't the only whistle available, a fairly wide variety of whistles was made from Victorian times onward. In keys from high G' down to Bflat (and the odd A). And for a long period of their existence Clarkes were made in various keys (see Dannatt's history of Clarke whistles. Ds were available as early as 1903 and probably before and remained so until at least after the war.).
