Susato's most popular session whistles, Kildares are built in two pieces with a tapered bore. They have a curved windway, separate head and body sections, and are easily tuned by pulling the headjoint in or out.

Susato whistles are played full-time by many players (perhaps most famously by Kevin Crawford on Lunasa's albums), and are loved by many more for their all-purpose, all-condition playability. These are the go-anywhere, do-anything whistles... keep it full-time in your bookbag, hiking pack, take them to the beach, or anywhere else. And they are in tune, sound terrific, and play great!

There are 20 Kildare whistles from high G to low C (1½ octaves), and the standard whistle is in D or Low D for playing at sessions or with other instruments. More info on whistle keys is here, and we are always happy to answer your questions.

Other Options

  • Looking to purchase multiple keys? Sets with multiple whistle bodies and one headjoint are available at a price that is significantly lower than buying the individual whistles. 
  • Susato does offer a keyed option on the larger instruments, but we recommend against this unless it is for a child, adult with extremely small hands, arthritis sufferer, etc.
  • Whistles can be laser engraved with designs and a name or other text. Contact us for more information.
