Logan Delta Delrin precision non-metallic whistle
This dog training whistle is precision made in exactly the same way as our metal whistles but using Delrin, a new modern polymer developed for food contact applications. Delrin is now the material of choice for precision instruments where strength & performance are critical and because it is completely sterile and stable at extreme temperatures. It is especially valued for its rigidity and toughness and the fact that is is a very dense material so capable of taking a sharp edge. For that reason it is now used to manufacture flutes and other musical instruments - and so is an ideal material for us to use to create a precision non-metallic Logan whistle. You'll find no distortion in your whistle sounds. Customers also like the tactile, silky texture and the fact that it is comfortable to use even when it’s very cold, or hot – or if you just don't want a metal whistle.
This non-metallic Delrin material and our Logan Delta shape create whistle sounds that some describe as more 'bird-like' - which can be better for a highly responsive dog. But this whistle can also produce sharp, loud tones when required.
This a very lightweight whistle weighing only 5 grams.

" The Logan Delta is made of a kind of very hard polymer which enables easy grip with the teeth, while being light and comfy in the mouth. This is a very good all round whistle that will suit many people." Julie Hill
I have allergies to several metals and alloys ( mostly in jewelry), so I contacted Logan Whistles for recommendation on a good whistle. They recommended this item, and I am very happy they did. The product arrived 2 weeks sooner than expected, and I have been able to get sounds out. Now I have to get the right sounds together for my dog. Thank you for a great product. !~
I received the Logan Delta Delrin Whistle as a replacement for a brass Ventura whistle as I could not tolerate the brass in my mouth (this is not a problem for my wife who is now the happy owner of my brass whistle). The Delrin whistle is very pleasant to use although the sound quality isn’t quite a good as the brass version, but I would recommend it for its lightness and comfort in the mouth.
Logan Whistles have been a pleasure to deal with and I would thoroughly recommend them. Their aftersales service has been second to none.
My youngest dog Zeiss is starting to learn the whistle. I use the Logan Delta Delrin on all young dogs for these three simple reasons:
-it won't stick to your lip in cold weather. It is non-metallic.
-soft sound, great for youngsters that are working close to you. Both for the dogs, sheep and your ears.
-in my opinion it is the easiest whistle to get a clear sound in. You don't have to blow hard either
I bought the Delta & the 304 whistles. Right now I like the Delta much better... though in fairness I am just learning to use these whistles for the first time. If you have never used these types of whistles, it isn't as easy as I thought it would be. After 10 hours of practice, things are coming together. Here are some of the reasons I like the Delta....
1: The Delrin is safe on your teeth and very light & nimble which makes it much easier when learning!.. it is well worth the price, even if you are going to buy another whistle as well. It's going to be lots of hours getting the hang of this... and this will help you not be tired & be distracted. Plus, it's easy to wear around my neck all day & just play it when I'm alone in my truck or outside doing work. Just drop it back inside my shirt to keep the dirt or sawdust off of it.
2: There is no taste associated with the Delrin. I can taste metals after a while but the Delta is neutral.
3: If you are starting out & are only going to buy one whistle to see if you & your dog will like it... this is not only the least expensive , it is also a great first choice for the reasons listed above. If you don't like it, you aren't out that as much money... if you like it, you may benefit from more than one whistle anyway. I know I have.
It's summer now so I don't know how much I would prefer a Delta to a 304 during winter. I do know that it rains almost every day here in Washington state , USA in the fall & winter and that the Delta excels in that condition. I'll find out then!
I'd like to let you know that I just love these whistles (the Logan 304 and Delta). I've been persevering with a cheap plastic shepherd's whistle for some time (and with some success) but as soon as I put the Delta in my mouth it was literally like I'd gone from being percussion to becoming a whole orchestra. When I tried the 304, well I was blown away! The feel, the weight, the sound. I love everything about it. I went up to a canyon and was amazed by its penetration, a solid echo from well over a mile away, amazing.
