Well they are a bit cheaper in Ireland, but besides that, they're fun to play. I'm a guitarist and bought this for the fun of it. It is fun, but don't be fooled, for someone who's never played one before it's a bit of a challenge. Quality is very good, for what it is. My suggestion is to buy one and then practice on a long flight somewhere, or from the backseat of the car while someone else drives. Great fun, easy to take with you.

I purchased this tin whistle and a plastic version. Hands down, the plastic version is so much easier to play with clearer tones and wider range of tones. I wanted the tin whistle to play the theme from The Lord of the Rings, etc. but it doesn't have the range.

Great Starter Whistle

Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

This tin whistle was the first that I bought. I used it to learn and practice, then I opted to buy one a little more pricey and I found out that they sound pretty similar. So for the price It's an awesome buy.

Good beginner or additional instrument

Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

As good as any penny whistle in the price range, and there are several brands. This is a good first instrument for anyone, relatively easy to play. It's also an easy instrument to learn for someone who wants to add another voice to their arsenal of instruments.

Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

For it's low price, I didn't expect much from this whistle, but when I got it I found it was quite a piece of work. It reaches a full 2 octaves from D3-D5, and once you get the hang of it, is an easy and fun instrument to play. I fully recommend this for anybody who wants an easy learning instrument or anybody who wants to add to their collection of instruments.

    Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

    This is my first purchase of a tin whistle but it's everything I had hoped for. The tone and tuning were critical points of interest to me and I am not disappointed. Clean, clear tones and each note is perfectly in tune. This will sound great in a Crltic piece I just arranged.

            Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

            Wanted something like this for years due to its size & weight. Because I don't drive due to epilepsy, I have to carry everything I can to all destinations that I have to walk to/from. I'm able to work, but society won't give those like myself who are able to work a real chance at working outside the home, even if the law says I'm able to work, society says no chance at even a part time job or even as a volunteer worker. Getting to my destinations early, I now have time to practice using this whistle. I enjoy old hymns of the church, & some patriotic songs. These help control the many nasty seizures I experience. Thank you for showing you care about those, like myself who can work, who want to work, by making this whistle available for purchase the price was very reasonable too. I saved pennies found to purchase this item. Thank you very much!

              I purchased this because of a beautiful performance I saw of Amazing Grace using the Irish Tin Whistle. I doubt if I can ever make it sound this well, but inspired me to give it a try.

                For the price, it can't be beat. The sound it produces is exactly what I expected and the intonation is right on. The fipple was attached slightly off center with the holes in the barrel but I have gotten used to it by slightly rotating my hands. The lacquer finish began to wear off under my thumbs and finger pads after a few hours of play so, I removed it all with some acetone. This whistle adds a very nice Celtic feel our music.
