The W-A4 (Eire) model is developed with Irish music in mind.  It has wooden ends with metal inserts for the primary reflection areas. The sound can be characterized as metal like, but not harsh. It has a 'flute' like quality to it.The reed pans are parallel, as in the W-A2 and A-3, but have adjusted chambers and customized scaled reeds. The equilibrium is flat, meaning that there is very little difference in volume between the lowest and highest notes.
