Finally received my shearwater low G whistle, it’s taken a few days to get used to it but I can now play it without sounding like I’m blowing up a balloon, what I did notice is it takes a few minutes to get it warmed up and then it sounds really really good, very nice aluminium whistle for around £55 plus postage, I would recommend it

Hya Keith, thanks for that mate I’ll give that a go , maybe haven’t wasted my money after all 😂. I really love the sound of the low g and hope to be playing it one day soon.

Received my generation Bb in the post yesterday, so today was my first chance to have a play with it, I am struggling to play it , finding the last hole hard to reach, I must have short fingers for a man, now I am really worried as I’ve also ordered a Shearwater low g, what chance do I have reaching the holes on this if I can’t reach a b flat generation , any advice would be appreciated.

Yeah absolutely right Keith, I find the brass plays well for slower tunes and the plastic and the nickel play well for jigs or fast tunes.

Had my new Killarney high D brass whistle for a week now, it’s very well made and a really nice whistle costing £80, I still find myself going back to my faithful Tony Dixon 1 piece plastic highD, costing £20
