A brilliantly versatile potter's wheel.

As with all of the pottery wheels from the Whisper range by Shimpo, the Whisper T is extremely quiet, never exceeding 30 decibels. 

The powerful 300W motor is capable of delivering a powerful, responsive, accurate and smooth throwing experience.

The remote foot pedal allows for extremely precise control.

This wheel can be used on tabletop or on the ground, thanks to its removable and adjustable legs.

✅ NO RISK. If for any reason you change your mind, you can simply return the wheel to us and we will give you a full refund. No strings attached.  

This is one of the most popular models of Shimpo wheels. If you have been to a few pottery studios, you have almost certainly seen this model being used.
