The 'Classic' Whistle ~ loud, penetrating, & omnidirectional

"Is it loud? You bet," reported USCG Rescue & Survival Systems Manager, CW Todd, in the U.S. Coast Guard's Spring '95 On Scene Magazine. "This whistle will produce 115 decibels of unusually omnidirectional sound."

These world renowned

Omnidirectional, High Pitch 'Pea-less' Whistles

are used by SAR professionals and outdoor survivalists globally!

For sport & safety . . . historically speaking

For our 'donor-gifting' relief program, we are profiling the Fox40 'Classic' Whistle. See our 'donor-gifting' profile for more. A worthy purpose and fundraising cause.

This state-of-the-art sound signalling device is recommended for personal carry for all manner of personal emergencies and rescue operations. Has been for some 30-plus years.

Patented in 1987 by Fortron Inc (Fox40) and brought to market soon after. This is the same referee's whistle formally adopted by professional sports referee's in all corners of the world beginning in the late 80s.

Namely, the National Basketball Assocaition (NBA,) Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA,) International Basketball Federation (FIBA,) National Football League (NFL,) Canadain Football League (CFL,) National College Athletic Assocaition (NCAA,) International Jet Sports Association (IJSBA,) Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART,) International Olympic Association (IOC,) and so forth . . . to highlight a few. You've likely heard its high pitch sound many times on TV and the sports pitch.


Although built for professional sports, this is where Ascent came in with its 'For Safety's Sake' marketing acumen.

The 'classic' whistle also soon became preeminent for use as an emergency sound signalling device . . . beginning in the early 90s. Ask any professional whistleblower.

Namely, the US Coast Guard (USCG,) Canadian Coast Guard (CCG,) Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI,) US Navy - Naval Aviation (NavAir,) National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA,) American Red Cross, Canadian Red Cross, College Stores Research & Educational Foundation (CSREF,) Lifesaving Society, and so on and so forth . . . to highlight a few.

For our purpose, it is the safety whistle of choice for hearing, locating, and recovering persons in distress. In, on, or off the water.

Waterproof - tuned chambers

Straight from the engineer who designed them. These high-tech whistles have harmonically tuned sound chambers. Producing different frequencies that interact with one another. Think musical instrument.The 'Classic' and 'Mini' whistles with 3 chambers. The 'Pearl' whistle with 2.

These are audible signals or cues. Going in and out of phase with one another outside the whistle. Causing a complex high-pitch "beat" or "trill".

There are no moving parts. No cork ball or plastic pea. Allowing its sound-producing chambers to instantly clear when blown, of saliva and water. No blockage, nothing to impede the sound nor to fail.

Omni-directional, high pitch - penetrating sound

High pitch, penetrating, and omnidirectional. Auditory cues for humans to hear and locate couldn't be more important in an emergency. Particularly, when the direction of search parties and other help is unknown.

This is precisely why professional users worldwide, depend on the 'Classic' and 'Mini' whistles to be heard above competing, ambient noise (wind, waves, crowd noise, etc.). As anyone who knows whistles will tell you!
