Beginning life as the Cyclists Road Clearer in the 1880s, this amazing sound effect is now part of every percussionist’s kitbag. Comes with a 7” (18cm) bell piece to more than double the loudness of the 147 Small Siren.
A five-generation iconic British business, born of two of the truly most recogniseasble sounds in the world. The 1880 Acme Metropolitan, the London “Bobby’s” original and supremely innovative police emergency response whistle, and the Acme Thunderer: the original “Sound of Football” and choice of referees since the 1800’s, from local leagues to the very top echelons of The Beautiful Game, across the planet.
Acme also craft beautifully made whistles and calls for a plethora of musical and theatrical applications, which you’ll’ve heard so many times, in so many places, in so much music, but probably never even realised. No digital samples, real analogue Acme.
