Indiana based company TheWhistleShop.Com joHn recommends the Sweet Tone for beginners.
They are quiet excellent quality control so they are all good instruments.

The WhistleShop also has a good beginner’s page a gentle introduction to the instrument.
Here is a video of Liam Ladewski playing an F whistle by Colin Goldie. A whistle has only 6 holes
but wow. That’s Jacob Turner on the bodhran. Both Liam and Jacob are former students of mine.
And here is a set of Irish tunes with Theresa Kubiak joining Liam and Jacob. That’s me joHn and
bouzouki Chris O’Brien on mandolin and Rob Weber on bass. We can give lessons on bouzouki
guitar mandolin fiddle and just about any instrument used in Irish music.
