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.

      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.

          Comments about Waltons Irish Tin Whistle:

          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.

            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.

              As a former Irish folk band member, I really appreciate the craftmaship of a good tin whistle! This one is sure to last me for many years and is destined to become an heirloom.
