Description

Lír whistles are designed to effortlessly flow across three octaves. The brand has developed their unique design with feedback from some of the best whistle players in the world.

Volume, tone and accuracy are all crucial when it comes to cutting across in any Irish traditional music session or gig. The weight of these whistles gives the durability and stability needed when playing in the higher octaves.

The Lir Low D has some of the easiest finger spacing found on a low D whistle; only the Carbony Close-Spacing low D is more manageable.

Materials

Body:

The Lír whistle body is made using aluminium giving the whistle a manageable weight and sweet mellow tone.

Head:

The head of the whistle consists of a polished Delrin® with the silver plated brass. The head is laser engraved with the Lír logo.

Tunability

Lír whistles are fully tuneable and can be adjusted to suit the players requirement. The whistle is set sharp which allows the player to manipulate the slide to perfectly in tune or flat.

Maintenance

Lír whistles require very little maintenance but a few things are encouraged to keep your whistle in the best condition.

After each use clean the bore of the whistle with a mop to remove moisture.

If the tuning slide of the whistle becomes stiff apply a small amount of cork grease. You can also disinfect the whistle with any alcohol wipes.

Use a silver cleaning cloth to keep your whistle looking superb.

Comes with canvas pouch and presentation box.
