So I received my Killarney whistle and while it’s an amazing instrument by most standards I’ve noticed a few gripes.
First, the tone is a bit “scratchy” as in its not very sweet or smooth sounding.
Second, it’s not loud enough! I play with a very lively and rouwdy pub band and I need a whistle that can keep up.
Important to note, the breath requirement for the Killarney is top notch. Owning it will improve my playing for sure, so I don’t regret the purchase. But I’m still looking for that sweet and boisterous pub whistle of my dreams…
