We are not trying to push our engraved whistles on you. We just want everyone to know what makes our engraved whistles so special.
It's not our special price and it's not our Free Shipping on orders over $35.00.
It's when you give our engraved whistle as a gift, you can feel confident that the coach or whoever the gift is for, will be able to look at it and know it's a beautiful whistle because there are no scratches, dings or dents and it is perfectly polished. And they can take their new whistle out on the field or where ever they would use it, and it will sound and work beautifully.
Engraved whistles are different from all the whistles at the big box stores.
They are bigger in size and they are not plated. They are made of polished stainless steel.
The bigger size presents a problem to engraved whistle manufacturers.
They are setup to mechanically insert a small cork ball inside the whistle after the whistle is soldered together.
The small cork ball doesn't work because it takes all of your breath to barely blow the whistle. Larger whistles require a larger cork ball. They can't mechanically install the larger cork ball. And they can't put a larger cork ball in the whistle before soldering, because of the heat.
So they install a white ball made of stone before soldering, which is not bothered by the heat. The problem is the white stone ball is too heavy to blow.
We order our engraved whistles without any ball in them. We tested different size balls. And the large cork ball give us the best results. So we hand install a large cork ball after our polishing but before our engraving. That fixes the sound problem with engraved whistles. No one on the planet does this.
The next problem is the sanding, buffing and polishing.
Sometimes you do get lucky and some of the whistles will come in and will look fine. But a lot of the time they don't.
So we sand and buff and polish each whistle before we engrave them. Again, no one else on the planet will do this.
This is how we can guarantee that the PW3 is the most beautiful, best sounding engraved whistle you'll ever own.
Make no mistake about it, you want to give the PW3!
