Thought it might be a Dixon, but the head looks different.

Hmmm. I’ve read the Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps use Skip Healy’s Fifes. I know I’ve seen one of their
soloists use one of Skip’s 10 hole chromatic fifes. Dunno if Skip makes any whistles…

Burke composite?

Re: What whistle brand is this?

It looks to me to be a non tunable Susato. I’ve got one similar, but can expand the picture up large enough to get a close look.

Re: What whistle brand is this?

From the head and tuning-slide profiles, I’m pretty sure it’s a Burke composite.
Plus it has that brilliant second octave that Burke’s session-bore whistles have.
