Series III High-D Ahava Rabba Scale with C Extension.

List Price:  $40.00 

An improvement on the Ahava-Rabba Scale Whistle.  The bell (bottom note) is in C but still plays the D Ahava-Rabba scale.  Seven Toneholes.

Has better spacing and works with more music then the regular Ahava-Rabba Whistle.

Useful whether you're jamming in Klezmer or Middle-eastern music or simply learning modal music.  I play other instruments and found that I can work in this mode better from playing this whistle - it makes you more familiar with the mode.

Ahava Rabba mode is used by many cultures with different names:  Mela Vakulabharanam, Alhijaz, Raga Jogiya, Vativasantabhairavi, Maqam Humayun, Hitzaz, Dorico Flamenco, Harmonic Major inverse, Phrygian Dominant
