After 150 years of continued production of the famous Original Tinwhistle, in 1996 the company produced a brand new type of Tinwhistle, the SWEETONE.

This was the first conical bore Tinwhistle to be made with a plastic mouthpiece, handmade in the U.K. using quality raw materials; the mouthpiece is moulded using ABS PC blend, this combined with modern technology and our traditional workmanship gives it a clear and accurate tone, an ideal Tinwhistle for the professional player and the enthusiastic amateur.

The whistle isn't plated with metal or anything. It's shiny plastic... It's one thing if it was clearly marked or labeled as plastic, because for $10 you can't expect much, but I felt thoroughly shammed on opening it. Aside from that though, it's exactly what you'd expect from a $10 whistle; functional, novelty toned, fun to play around with. I'd still recommend getting it but know what to expect; there are other colours in the D model (at a lower price) and you might even want to invest a bit more to get an actual metal tinwhistle.
