Reviews for the Setanta Low Whistle
“I just received a low D a week ago and am extremely impressed with it so far. It is solidly made with a tuning slide standard - three o-rings. The tone holes are comfortable with no unreasonable stretches (for my hands). The tone is amazing being mostly clear with some chiff. It has a very strong bottom D and is easy to play all the way up and above 2 octaves. The tone and tuning can be pushed pretty easily without 'breaking'.” - Greg Schnider www.chiffandfipple.com
“John O'Brien has really done his homework to produce a great easy-to-play all-rounder with excellent balance between octaves … I would say this is an excellent Low D” - Mikethebook www.chiffandfipple.com
