If you have always liked the feel of budget priced High D Whistles but have become frustrated because the intonation and sound is inferior….worry not, here is the perfect answer.

‘The New Improved’ is based on the Feadog High D. However, Master Pipe and Whistle Maker from County Kerry, Cillian O’Briain has redesigned the instrument.

The mouthpiece has a special insert under the wind-way, which stops air billowing around inside the mouthpiece, making it more directed. Additionally the modified wind-way provides quality tonality with improved intonation throughout both octaves.

There is no shrillness to ‘The New Improved’, the sound is rounded with good projection whilst not being invasive.

A solidity is evident to the instrument, making it a little weightier than its cheaper counterparts. They do take a little mastering but any whistler worth his/her salt will soon have this super instrument playing wonderfully.

    This is the best whistle I’ve played! For me, it beats Killarney (which is also good), dixon heavy brass, generation, oak… These are only under my belt, but dont need to look further. O’Briain is sounding sweet in both octaves, it has the beautiful complexity and character in tone that lacks usually in high-end whistles.. Highly recommended!
