Why does my whistle sometimes clog up with condensation and how can I help prevent this?

All whistles that are fully metal can have a tendency to clog up when cold. To warm up the head to prevent this happening what you should do is to put a finger over the vent on the mouthpiece and blow hard a few times before you start playing. I also blow the windway out inbetween tunes because if the whistle is not played for a couple of minutes the mouthpiece can cool down and then condensation can build up when you start playing agin. This can change depending on the humididity and temperature of the surounding.


Also over time dust or other little specs can build up inside the windway that also can cause clogging problems.
