If you've played before then that's a good base for you to start playing again. Maybe a low whistle? :thumbsup:

Maybe eventually. In my opinion, if you want to learn whistle - any whistle - you would be better off starting by learning how to play a high D whistle. You can progress on to low D later, if that's your interest.. To start straight off with low D I reckon is a stretch too far. Literally, and figuratively.

I'm only a newbie to whistle, & flute, started out with a high set of Generation nickel whistles, & tried a Tony Dixon low D flute, but the stretch of the holes was quite considerable, & it has taken some time for my fingers to do the stretch, still not quite there. ;)

My lowest whistle at the moment is an alto G, (& my highest is also a G :D ).
