Tin Whistle/Native American Flute Carrying Case, Embroidered With "Folkcraft® Instruments" Logo

Item Number 9012371

Regular price $120.00

We're proud to offer you the very best pennywhistle (penny whistle, tin whistle, etc.) case on the market. We've sized this case a bit large for the standard-octave C and D whistles, so it will fit your two-piece low D whistles just fine.

As an added bonus (or as a primary purpose to the case, depending on what you play!) this case also fits most Native American Flutes. The photo shows a variety of C and D whistles, plus a B minor flute. (The whistles and flute shown are for demonstration purposes only, and are not included with your carrying case purchase.)

This exceptional tin whistle carrying case has six pockets for instruments. You can easily put two or three whistles in a single pocket. With three pockets on each side of the case, we've added a padded divider in the middle of the case, just so your instruments don't scratch each other when the case is closed.

The case will lay flat when opened on all three sides, so your instruments are fully accessible for ease of use. There's a pocket on the outside of the case for small accessories, and there are two small (flat) pockets inside the case as well.

A shoulder strap is included with your whistle/flute carrying case.

This case is handmade in Woodburn, Indiana in the Folkcraft Instruments workshop. We use the best quality zippers (#10 size - the big, sturdy zipper for long life, made by the YKK company), a coated polyester fabric to keep the water out, and high density open-cell foam for superior impact and thermal protection.

Best of all, this case stands alone (it has handles, of course!), but it also will attach to any of our rigid dulcimer cases. If you have one of our rigid cases, you've noticed all of the extra D rings on the front and sides of the case. This flute/whistle bag is designed to attach easily to your dulcimer case. We've shown a series of photos that show this case attaching to Folkcraft owner Richard Ash's dulcimer case. Everywhere that Richard (or you!) goes, the flutes and whistles automatically travel with the dulcimer. It is a convenient way to travel, and you don't use up an extra hand to carry yet another case full of instruments.

Our NAF/whistle bag measures 25" x 9" when zipped up. This carrying case will fit flutes/whistles up to 22" in length.

Pam (one of our sewers) put a lot of design and development time into this case, it it really shows with all the features she designed into the end result.

It’s the One

A wonderful multi-whistle bag, the best design I’ve seen and I’m very happy with it. Sturdy material, oversized zipper, lots of storage, long enough for a low D in one piece (maybe not a C?), each pocket is wide enough for two or even three smaller whistles if you don’t mind them jostling together a bit. An excellent price, team is very responsive, and very fast service.

But here’s a bit of analysis for a review. I’d suggest that the two extra storage compartments inside above the whistles are unnecessary given the large compartment on the outside. I’d like to use that inside top space for more pockets for smaller separated whistles instead of doubling them up in the bottom pockets, at least on one side.

For the carry strap, it seems the connecting points are opposite if you just want to toss it over your left shoulder leaving your right arm free (I’m right-handed). So I attached the strap to the big bottom dulcimer-case clips and hang it zipper down. Looks upside down, but keeps the whistles upright in their pockets, and seems perfectly fine given the light weight of even a full bag of whistles.

But those are really nitpicks. This is a fine multi-whistle case, and I’m very happy to use it. Thanks, all!

Excellent customer service

My daughter needed a case for her growing collection of tin whistles, including her rather large low-D single-piece whistle. I didn't have the exact length of the whistle, and I couldn't ask my daughter as the case was to be a surprise gift. Folkcraft sales went out of there way to inquire about the brand of whistle, and found the specs for me to verify that the low-D whistle would fit in the case. Thank you!

Love It!

I admit I was a bit skeptical about this case. I wasn’t sure how well my larger whistles would fit. I currently have 15 whistles in this thing, including my Howard low d, with room for more. The zippers are hearty, padding is firm, sewing is tidy and secure. Case is lightweight but protective and the pocket on the outside is roomy enough for the extras- cleaning cloth, tuner, roll of tape, pad of paper and whatever other small odds and ends you could want. I didn’t know how keen I’d be with the logo on the pocket but it’s a fantastic product so I’m happy to advertise it! This overthinker says stop overthinking and just buy it already.

Best case for your whistles "hands down"

I'd looked around a bit for a quality case to carry my whistles and stumbled onto this one. It's perfect and it's American made which appeals to me a great deal. For reference, I don't have to break down my Setanta low D in two pieces to fit, for some larger whistles this may be necessary, not sure. It's well thought out for dividers and pouches. I can keep all sorts of incidentals in the available compartments. The whistle pockets are large enough to keep your whistles in their own soft cases - easier to identify - It's a sharp looking case and gets compliments, well worth the investment (a small price compared to what you are trying to protect inside!)
