Spalding Electronic Whistle

Perfect for drum majors, section leaders and band directors, the Spalding Electronic Whistle can produce three distinct tones at the touch of a button. It also eliminates the health and safety risks of moving with an object in your mouth and using a device that someone else’s lips have touched.

The Spalding Electronic Whistle is much more reliable than a traditional whistle because it does not depend on airflow to emit sound. “One of the tones sounds exactly like a regular whistle, and we use it to get people to attention,” says Gary Smith, president of Smith Walbridge Clinics, Band Products and PA Systems, which hosts marching band camps and workshops. “We use the second tone to signal the beginning of rehearsal, and the third to remind people to stop talking.”
