Current Stock

I’m selling all of my best whistles at The Irish Flute Store.

On this page I’ll sell seconds that are deeply discounted.   I won’t sell whistles that don’t play well, but occasionally (often) a whistle will have a cosmetic flaw such as scratches in the fittings, turning marks on the body, a misshapen tone hole, or a repaired crack.  Some have small tuning issues for some players.

This is my current stock of seconds:

L-R

101 – boxwood with brass fittings – very easy player, tone is kind of pure.  The beak is a little short and the mouthpiece.  [sold]

112 – pau ferro – bottom three notes are 10-20 c flat in the bottom octave.  Very nice woody tone. $50

115 – jatoba and brass – top of the second octave needs a little push; mouthpiece is a little chunky; slide needs to be out kind of far.  Traditional sound. $75
