Hi! This is Mr Wetyer welcoming you to Big Whistle Music. I would like to take you on a whistle stop tour of my website. My business is Tin Whistles. I think they are the greatest instruments used in traditional folk music.

Call it what you will, the Whistle, Penny Whistle (often spelt Pennywhistle) is a versatile and much travelled wind instrument that is particularly associated with Irish music and the Celtic tradition. Whistles come in many sizes and forms. The pocket-sized High Whistle is the smallest member of this family of woodwind instruments, with a range like a piccolo.

The Low Whistle by contrast is larger than an Irish flute and has one of the most distinctive sounds in Irish music. Its unique sound was used to great effect on the jigs, reels and slow airs of Riverdance and provided the haunting theme for the soundtrack to the film Titanic.

If you are interested in Tin Whistles then my website is the place for you. Here you can purchase Irish Music and Whistle sheet music and learn how whistles are made. You can buy Whistles & Flutes online at my Whistle Shop along with material to help you to learn to play this marvellous instrument. Don't forget to visit my World Wide Whistling Gig Guide and remember to peep into my Special Offers and New Products sections from the world of Penny Whistle Music.

Happy Whistling
Mr Wetyer
