Can you use a different keyed flute/whistle in this competition?

Re: Miscellaneous

U mean comhaltas?
It used to be that you could play low whistle in miscellaneous, but its been a few years so idk if that’s still the case.

Re: Miscellaneous

Yup.. e.g. F flute or Bb. Or Low whistle.

Re: Miscellaneous

Hmmm. See below from Comhaltas Fleadh rules… Flutes are flutes Eb and below. Don’t know if that rules out Bb from Misc. Whistle definition seems agnostic once 6-holed fipple instrument. But I’ve seen Low-whistles in Misc competition.

Note 2 Comp 3: Feadóg Mhór / Flute: Instruments pitched in E Flat or below, to include traditional simple
system wooden flutes, also Boehm system, Radcliffe system etc. Flutes pitched higher than E Flat must
compete in the Rogha Gléas competition.
Note 3 Comp 4: Feadóg / Whistle: A whistle can be defined as an instrument with a fipple and not more
than six finger holes. The pitch of the instrument or the material from which it is made is irrelevant.
