The Killarney Whistle is a precision hand-crafted instrument, produced in Killarney, Ireland. It is designed and produced by life-long Tin Whistle players (and music teachers), Padraig Buckley & Tadhg Buckley. Having played Tin Whistle for over forty years, they have used their experience and skills to produce an Irish-made professional quality instrument, at an affordable price.
The Killarney Whistle not only looks great, it has all the qualities that a musician needs in their instrument. These include:
- Bright clear tone in both octaves
- Good volume in both octaves
- Excellent responsiveness
- In tune with itself and manually tuneable with a tuning slide
- Solid ergonomic feel when played, with a comfortable mouthpiece
- Triple Nickel-Plated body for a bright sound
- Available in the Keys of D, C and Eb
- Now available with Brass body
Please browse our website and have a listen to the whistle being played by one of the makers and some other whistlers. Judge for yourself.
Please note that the key of D is the most popular key so if you are unsure, D is the key you want.
As an optional extra, we now have a padded pouch available in which to store your Killarney Whistle. Purchase it here >>
