The Whivel is a struck idiophone chimera emitting sounds between bells, gongs, and cymbals. When hit, its wings begin to flutter gently, revealing low frequencies to listen to and watch. An explosive percussive instrument for distanced listeners, and a deep rumbler at close proximity.
They can be hung on trees or carried around while wandering through the hallway at night. Careful usage is advised when used at seances.
Whivels are unique instruments – their tunings are ear-curated, not two of them sound the same. We prefer their natural resonances not to be pushed towards precise frequencies. Made to be portable.
Comes with Gebeater mallet.
