They announced a while ago it was in the pipeline, I checked fairly regularly since and it seems available now (I hadn't checked for a while). I have put an order in (had a birthday recently so that's me sorted for another year).

Anyone have one yet, any impressions?

It's about time :lol: . I've been checking the past few days, so must be really new. Let us know what you think when it arrives. Hopefully we can avoid WWIII aka Sindt C vs Killarney C, but would still be interesting to see if the Cs are as good as the Ds :) . Btw, Happy belated birthday! :party:
Cheers!

Do you know what the inside diameter is of the C tone tube?

That's what I was wondering.

Great news! I have been waiting for it and will place my order! Now I just hope it is as good as the D and hope they will make a Bb also!

For those ordering early, are you getting the brass or chrome plated version? I have a brass D Killarney, and it's among my favorites, but thinking about the chrome for the sake of variety. Unfortunately, I can't justify getting both.

I generally prefer nickel over brass so I put down nickel but just before hitting the paypal button I changed it to brass on the spur of the moment. I have four nickel old Generation Cs that are all fine in their own right so, if only for the sake of variety, brass would make a nice change. While I don't have a big problem with the combination of yellow and white metal in my other Killarneys, a whistle in just the one metal is just that bit more balanced looking (cf Sindt).

I see from the Killarney website that yes the C is now available. I didn't see any formal announcement anywhere only that Killarney would eventually make a C. I too hope the Killarney is as good as the D and Eb.

I normally prefer silver, but the plating wears fairly quickly. I guess that gives the appearance of use, if that is what you want.

I'm excited to see a C Killarney as I REALLY like the sweet second octave of the D whistle. I also like the chiffy-metal tone of the Killarney - that is my preference over woody-recorder quality.

I got mine two weeks ago, and I love it - even more than the D and Eb ones!
Tube diameter is the same as a Generation or Feadog C.
Can't wait until they make them in Bb too...

Good, that is exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks for that. Mine should be here tomorrow or Tuesday. :party:

Which did you get, brass or chrome? And if you got the case, is it larger than the D case? I can fit a Generation C in my Killarney D case, but it’s a little tight.

I've never been able to find a C that I like, so this is interesting. But it looks like I will have to pay VAT twice - there's no price difference for inside/outside EU, i.e. VAT is included in both cases and then I will have to pay that again when I import it.
Is there a reseller for Killarney somewhere who have their VAT registration set up properly so that they can differentiate? I know there is a process involved and that's why not everyone is doing it, but e.g. bigwhistle do - they don't sell Killarney though.

I have seen Killarneys in Custys although they're not on their website. mind you, last time I was in there Killarney Cs weren't available yet. You can ask.

I'll go in and have a look when I am in Ennis.


Just received a message from Killarney quoting a two week delivery time, which is fine but sends up into smoke any hope of instant gratification.
