The Musician's Whistle Starter Set

A Whistle Shop Exclusive!

 

We receive requests quite often for recommendations from people that already know the basics of reading sheetmusic, but have never played whistle. The Musician's Whistle Starter Set is the perfect answer - it's a little higher priced than the other starter sets that you'll find in our Online Catalog, but if you look at everything that's included you'll see that it is indeed a tremendous value.

 

Complete Irish Tinwhistle Book and CD               Sweetone (Key of D)       Ireland's Best Session Tunes   Ireland's Best Session Tunes - Two CD Set


The set includes two great whistles - whistles that are not only good for a beginner, but ones that you'll be happy with no matter how advanced your playing becomes. Also included are an excellent Tutorial (with Online Audio access), a Tunebook (with a Two CD Set), and (for a limited time) pouches  for each whistle.

Owning at least two whistles is a good idea for a few different reasons. Each whistle has it's own individual voice - you'll find that some tunes sound better using one whistle, while others sound better on a different one. Also, if you're having a specific problem while learning (not being able to hit a certain note for example), having a second whistle helps you to decide if the problem is whistle-related or if it's just something that you have to work on a little more.

 

If you're new to playing whistle, you might also want to take a look at our Beginner's Section and our Frequently Asked Questions.

 

 

 

 

The Musician's Whistle Starter Set includes:

  • 1 - Susato VSB Tunable Soprano D Whistle (Key of D) ~ The Susato VSB Soprano D Whistle is priced slightly higher than many of our other "inexpensive" whistles, but has all of the features that Players look for in whistles costing much more. It plays beautifully in both octaves, has good volume and a very nice tone. 

  • 1 - Clarke Sweetone Whistle (Key of D) ~ While there are many fine whistles for a beginner, we believe that the Clarke Sweetone is probably just about the best. It plays very easily, and has a nice, round tone.

  • 1 - Complete Irish Tin Whistle (Book and Online Audio) ~ 144 Pages, by Mizzy McCaskill & Dona Gilliam. Probably one of the most extensive tutorials for learning all aspects of playing whistles, including detailed instruction for Slides, Cuts, Double Grace Notes, Triple Grace Notes, Triplets, Rolls, Bends, and much more!
  • 1 - Ireland's Best Session Tunes, Vol. 1 (Book) ~ This book contains 110 traditional whistles tunes. Note that we may substitute "Ireland's Best Session Tunes, Vol. II", "Ireland's Best Tinwhistle Tunes", or "Ireland's Best Tinwhistle Tunes, Vol. II", if Ireland's Best Session Tunes is out of stock (the book and CD Set that you receive will match, of course).
  • 1 - Ireland's Best Session Tunes, Vol. 1 (Two CD Set) ~ To complement the book described above. The two CD set includes all the tunes from the book. Note that we may substitute "Ireland's Best Session Tunes, Vol. II", "Ireland's Best Tinwhistle Tunes", or "Ireland's Best Tinwhistle Tunes, Vol. II", if Ireland's Best Session Tunes is out of stock (the book and CD Set that you receive will match, of course)
