Sweetones are made by The Clarke Tinwhistle Company, founded in 1843 by Robert Clarke. They combine a modern, injection molded whistlehead with a traditional, rolled and soldered conical tinplate tonebody. The combination gives a very easy to play whistle that has been widely accepted as a great inexpensive whistle for beginning players.
The voicing is complex/reedy, with a certain resonance that is characteristic of thin wall conical whistles and distinguishes them from cylindrical whistles such as Generations and Feadogs.
The Freeman Tweaked Sweetone has been adjusted to remove most of the extraneous breathiness, create a more focused and clear voicing, and somewhat reduce the breath requirement to give the player better control.

Woodyon 9/30/10I Love my Tweaked Clarke Sweetone... My first whistle was a Generation but the Sweetone has a lower sweeter tone. It's also easier to play you don't have to blow as hard as the Generation. I would recomend this for a beginner.
