MU-006  Wood Signal Whistle   This was the common instrument used for signaling Light Infantry skirmishers found throughout the forests of North America during the wars in the colonial period of American history. Since these highly mobile fighting men relied on speed and surprise for their success, they could not include drums and drummers for relaying orders. Instead, shrill whistles made from wood, bone, horn, antler, or brass were used to give commands and shift forces. This 4-inch whistle is a good representation of the type used and includes a short leather lanyard.   $6.00

MU-008  Small Double Horn Whistle    Made of cow horn with whistles on either end. One is a traditional shrill whistle while the other contains a small pea which causes the tone to trill (like a policeman’s or coach’s whistle) when blown with force. Comes with a lanyard.   $3.00

MU-009  Fish Whistle    Made of cow horn and shaped like a fish, this single tone whistle is a larger version of the small MU-007. Contrary to popular belief, they do not attract fish when blown over water (although I have been tempted to suggest to some users to put their heads under water and try calling in fish…) Measures 3 ˝” long and comes with a lanyard.    $3.00

MU-010  Large Double Horn Whistle    This is the largest horn whistle that we offer and measures about 3 ˝ inches overall. It certainly produces shrill tones on either end which can be heard at great distances. Makes a good signaling device in the woods or on the water.    $4.00
