I was doing some recording in a large church with some natural reverberation and decided to try some whistling with 2 fingers in my mouth. This is one of the short whistles.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "Zoom H6 (XY) recorder" on 22nd March 2018.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
