(Does anybody make low whistles with keys?


Susato makes both their Kildare and Dublin models with optional keys:

I have their Kildares in A and low G with 1 (bell note) key. They make it much easier for my small hands, and I like the tone of the Kildare as well. I also have the Kildare Bb and C, but they are short enough that I wouldn't need a key on them.

Thanks for the links! The Jubilee version looks pretty complicated - I was thinking more along the lines of the Susato (and they also make - or made - a bent-neck version, which is just as important for ergonomy as the keys, if not more so).

Is this forum strictly for playing Irish or Celtic music?

Faber0611, we're still here and wondering when you might comment again? For sure, quite a lot else has been discussed along the way, but that grew (like so much here) from latent/accidental cues... no, it's not strictly for Irish or Celtic music, so anything goes... in this case even recorders in the Whistle Forum from DrPhill's illustration(s) of its potentially all-encompassing nature! So please ask away about your general whistling questions because we have experienced, eclectic and interested whistlers here even if the majority are most involved in the Irish/Celtic scene.
