new whistle "Molten Deevo" also reached the Pan American Cup
HAVANA, Cuba, April 4, 2017 .- The president of the North,
Central American and Caribbean Confederation, Cristóbal Marte
Hoffiz, delivered the new whistles "Molten Deevo" to the
referees working in the IV Pan American U18 Cup.
These devices have been designed by the company "Molten", which
has contributed greatly to the efforts to innovate in favor of
the development of the game.
During the U-19 Pan-American Cup in Monterrey the referees
received for the first time this new modality of "pitos", as it
is also known in several Spanish-speaking countries.
"The referee is the symbol of fair play that controls the game,
and the whistle is the communication tool that must express that
purpose and feeling," the company notes regarding "Molten Deevo"
which is an acronym for the term vocal depth.
"Molten adapts to the maximum the sound and the form of his
whistles to each discipline", adds the company.
The object has new features and specifications that
differentiate it from whistles commonly used in general in
The sound of the "Molten Deevo" whistle is much sharper and
deeper, which is not affected by the influence of higher level

cuts the noise, and has a resonance in two directions, with a
"stereo" type effect that makes it easier for you to hear all
over the field.
"The referees of the NORCECA and South American Volleyball
Confederations have become the first to use this valuable tool,"
said Marte Hoffiz.
One of them, a Cuban with 14 years of experience as an
international Pedro Morell, gave his opinion after debuting with
the new work implement in the Pan American U-18.
"I felt good despite the fact that I have to pound loudly,
because the structure is a little broad, I worked without
problems, it's strong, it's heard a lot and it's very
comfortable to have it in my mouth," he said.
"The issue is getting used to it and as you use it more we
forget the previous one, I have performed well," he said.
Similar sentence expressed Cinthya Hernández, referee of Costa
Rica, when it concluded of "whistling" the match for the gold
between Colombia and Cuba.
"You train yourself the more you use it, it was different at
first, but I feel very good and I have not had any
