Can I also add John O'Brien, maker of Setanta Whistles with Paraic McNeela, both soprano (brass) and low (aluminium) in various keys? Have been garnering great reviews - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=105737.

When I got my income tax return, I went through this maker list to find something new to try, and found a number of defunct sites. Thought I'd provide a list here to help keep the maker list relevant.

The following sites were down when I checked
Anderson
Bracker
Calmont
Domhnahl
Ethnicwind
Fidginfain
GG/Gonzato
Greenwood
GRFlutes
Holifield
Impepe
Laughing
Londubh
MB
Setunsky
TBG

This one needs an updated link:

The Bracker link in the first post should probably be updated to https://www.music.bracker.uk/Main/Home-Page.html

Tell us something.: I play tinwhistle, Swedish bagpipe, Appalachian dulcimer, and Duet Concertina. Here to talk about 3D printing tinwhistle accessories, and get some ideas about tunes for tinwhistle in genres where it's less-commonly used.

But, alas, Hans is not making whistles at the moment, AFAIK.

Guido Gonzato has a new website at https://www.guidogonzato.it/ but he, too, is not making whistles for sale.

Tell us something.: Irish traditional instruments are so soothing in a way with a celtic tone at most of its instruments. I personally love to play concertina, tin whistles. In recent times, I am trying to learn wooden flutes. But without a celtic sound from whistles it is a bit of a different experience altogether.

I think this irish whistle makers are quite prevalent in AU, US and UK.
If you find them relevant, add them to the list.
