Behind the low D, the low G whistle is probably the second most popular pitch for a low whistle, on a par with the F. Of course, the D is the gold standard, as the most common key in folk music. We also see some demand for C and A whistles. But the low G comes in squarely as the main contender for joint second! The difficulty whistlers face is that relatively few makers manufacture low Gs, so they are in relatively short supply. That said, at Big Whistle, we like to stay on top of things to supply whistlers like you with the whistles you want. We stock and wholeheartedly recommend the following three low Gs, which come from some of the best makers in the world.
Dixon DX107G Low G
Made from polymer and aluminium, the Tony Dixon DX107G is the best budget low G you will get your hands on. The double ‘O’ ring provides excellent tuneability, and both the physical feel and tone of this whistle give it the feel of a much more expensive product. The perfect entry level low G for anyone wanting to branch into a new key of low whistle.

MK Pro Low G
The MK Pro range is renowned as one of the very best all-round low whistle ranges. The MK Pro low G boasts the same qualities as its famous MK Pro low D sister. Ergonomic design, a beautiful tone, and a stunning finish are what you can expect from this fine whistle. It comes with an aluminium body and brass tuning slide.
