These are very popular, as they are appeal to low whistle players of all standards. They are easy to play, ideal for those new to low whistles, but they are professional-grade instruments and are used on stage by many leading players. Chieftain is the brand name of a line of whistles manufactured by Phil Hardy of Kerry Whistles. They are easy to finger as the bottom hole is designed at a comfortable stretch. This whistle is very easy to blow in the first octave and has good back pressure, they produce a superb clear sound comparable to more expensive low whistles. Choosing a Whistle The whistle is a diatonic instrument with simple fingering, and it's very easy to learn to play - easier than the recorder. If you're thinking about beginning the whistle, it is advisable to begin with a normal (high) whistle in the key of D. It is generally considered to be the easiest to play, and pretty much all of the tutor books you can buy are for whistles in D (although they can be used for any key). What Keys Can I Play In? Whistles generally play two octaves, and you can easily play in two keys on any whistle, for example on a D whistle you can play in D and G. Because many tunes go down below the key note, you will often find that the tune is easier to play in G than D on a D whistle, because D is the lowest note. This means you should also consider the alternative key of the whistle when choosing the key. C goes to F, A to D which is useful, F to Bb, G to C and so on
