"Ars celare verum"

Is a whistle (like a referee uses) an Ocarina since it operates on the same principle? They are both Helmholtz resonators are they not?

Just food for thought / discussion.

I would say no for many reasons of which i will only mention 3.

1. A Referee whistle is not a musical instrument by any standard definition and is not intended for music. I it instead a noisemaker.

2 An ocarina has a several note to 4 octaves (depending on  which type you buy), and the referee whistle only has one tone.

3 A referee whistle has a ball in it and the ocarina does not.
