Susato Pennywhistle, Kildare Model, High D

Item Number 9041474

Regular price $59.00


One of the finest D pennywhistles around, the Susato line is known for its big, open sound and its accurate intonation. This is the "go to" whistle for many players, from the newest beginner to the most discriminating professional.

This instrument (the Kildare model) is a bit louder, and quite a bit more flexible in pitch. Ideal for a more experienced musician, it is a bit harder to control (not at all difficult, but harder) than the Oriole model. The reward for the experienced player is a richer tone quality and more volume across the entire range of the instrument.

Made in the USA of durable (moisture-proof!) plastic, these whistles have a great tone quality. A fingering chart, vinyl pouch, and thumb rest are included with your whistle purchase.

We carry this plastic pennywhistle in both C and D - the D whistle might be more traditional, but the C instrument is perhaps a bit more flexible for players that are playing more contemporary music.

Susato Pennywhistle, Oriole Model, High D

I bought a Susato Pennywhistle, Oriole Model, High D for my granddaughter who is a masterful flutist. She had been using a metal pennywhistle to play Irish jigs and reels, but it was a bit harsh and squeaky. When I gave her this Susato whistle and she ran through a few scales, we could both see that this was a great improvement over the metal whistle. And it is tunable. She loves it!

Nice Tone, Great Value

I picked up one of these at a dulcimer festival. It replaced a metal whistle that I had. This is easier to play, and has a clearer, less-harsh tone. Quality made.

Very Pleased!

Purchased this Pennywhistle at the recommendation of the instructor of a recent workshop. It is an "upgrade" from a metal pennywhistle...very pleased with the tone and ease of fingering.

Penny Whistle

Gift for my son. Came quickly and he says it's much better than the other brands he owns.

Very nice Pennywhistle

The product is easy to hold. The price was good. The whistle has an adjustable thumb rest on the back. The mouthpiece is removable for cleaning.
However, from the day I ordered to the day I received it, almost three weeks passed. The pennywhistle was not in stock at the time I ordered it.
