Deluxe Whistle Starter Set
A Whistle Shop Exclusive!

We've put together what we believe is the perfect starter set for someone that has never played a musical instrument and doesn't have any experience reading sheetmusic. This set includes two whistles, two tutorial books, two accompanying CDs, and several options.

Owning at least two whistles is a good idea for a few different reasons. Each whistle has its 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.



         Sweetone (Key of D)                Step One: Play Pennywhistle

This Deluxe Set includes:

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

  • 1 - Walton's Irish Brass D Whistle ~ Walton's Whistle - made in Dublin, Ireland, key of D. This whistle is made of made of brushed brass and has a plastic fipple (mouthpiece). The plastic mouthpiece has become accepted and even preferred by most traditional players, due to the consistency of sound that they produce. This whistle is played very easily in the entire two octave range, and has a pleasant, bright tone. Note that the mouthpiece on this whistle is not glued on, so it is somewhat tunable, to match pitch with other instruments or recordings.

    We believe that the combination of the Clarke Sweetone and the Susato Whistle gives a beginner two very good (but different) sounding whistles to learn on - whistles that are both also popular among experienced long-time players.

  • 1 - You Can Teach Yourself Tinwhistle - Book & Online Audio ~ This book & audio set teaches the basics of reading sheetmusic and playing whistle in a clear, easy to understand format. It assumes that you have no experience in playing an instrument or reading sheetmusic.

  • 1 - Step One: Play Pennywhistle - Book & CD (OR - upgrade to include a DVD also) ~ This book & CD set goes into more detail teaching traditional ornamentation, and includes some great whistle tunes (there's not a bad tune in the book). A nice thing about the Step One CD is that the whistle plays on one side of your stereo, the accompanying guitar plays on the other. By changing the balance on your stereo you can tune out the guitar to hear exactly what the whistle is playing, or tune out the whistle to play solo along with the guitar!
