Anyone else experiencing difficulties getting deliveries from Lir? They promised they would ship on a certain day and did not. Also, not very responsive.

Tell us something.: Played recorders at an intermediate level several decades ago, trumpet years before that. Exploring whistles, piano and guitar these days.

Maybe they sent yours to yet another musician for yet another review video. Interesting business model.

Tell us something.: Can play several instruments at an unimpressive level. Currently most interested in whistling with a side of flute.

All I know is that if I ever manage to get good enough at making whistles to sell them, I'm sending them to CutiePie and WhstleTutor. If they recommend them I'll be sold out instantly haha. Every review vid they do has tons of comments saying they just picked one up.

Tell us something.: I have been playing low whistle since 2003 and am interested in joining because I would like to be with a community of people who play the same instrument. I live in the United States and don't know anyone else who plays. My interest is to get better and just engage with this community.

I agree, CutiePie has done a lot for whistles with her Youtube channel.

I've been waiting over 2.5 months now and the delivery date they gave me passed nearly a month ago, the whistle was a gift and won't arrive in time now. If they have lots of orders it is understandable but the lack of communication is disappointing.

Tell us something.: Been learning the tin whistle for just under 2 years (as of Jan 2020) and wanting to learn more! Currently own about 11 High D whistles, 2 Low Ds, 2 Flutes and favourite tune is probably off to California with a general love of Irish Hornpipes.

There are lots of posts on the Facebook whistle forums (particularly “the Irish whistle” one) of people not receiving orders for many months (and communication stopping) and having to get their money back through PayPal from Lir.
