instrument-a-day 24: reed/whistle

I stuck a clarinet-style reed mouthpiece onto a whistle (day 1). It's possible to get both the whistle and reed to sound at the same time, resulting in ... funny noises. Having the reed on there also seems to make it easier to play the whistle's overtones, maybe by restricting airflow.
