|The best whistles in the world are made by the JL Hudson Company in England under their trade name ACME Whistles. They have been making whistles in Birmingham, England for over 100 years. This model was introduced in 1870 and is still used today by Navies around the world. In the old days the call was used on sailing ships and it could be easily heard over wind and sea. They didn't have a public address system in those days. The surprising thing is that this device works as well today as it did then. No batteries required and it lasts a lifetime so go figure!|
England understands the concept of quality. A trading nation for many generations they understand that if you make a quality product the brand will sell itself because people will know and trust it. Each whistle made by ACME is tested individually. Quality materials are used. The ACME Boatswain's Pipe is solid brass with a high quality chrome finish. With normal care it should last a lifetime!
