I love this little fife! It has a bright sound and goes up high very well. Sometimes I mess around in the 3rd octave with it. It's VERY loud the higher you go, of course, and will take a lot of practice. This is an excellent instrument to use to practice on, to train your embouchure muscles and to practice a six-hole instrument. It's right in the middle between a penny whistle, and a flute. I play this every day, usually for a few hours. I also play the penny whistle (Bb), tin whistle (D), quena (G -- an Andean flute), quenacho (D -- a low Andean flute), the baroque flute (D), a small antique flute/piccolo (F), openwhistle (F), and many other things. This helps me with all of them. Remember though -- playing fifes and flutes is hard at first. It takes a lot of practice before your lips will be string enough, but then the shape of your mouth will change, and playing will become easy. This is also awesome for the price.

This fife can play the C major scale fine, but when I tried to play sharps or flats, the fingerings did not work.
