Welcome to Reyburn Whistles
My first venture into whistle-smithing was creating the Low D. Reyburn Whistles now produces the following Celtic Whistles in both brass and aluminum:
- Low D
- Low F (only brass at this time)
- Low G
- Mezzo A
- Mezzo Bb
- Soprano C
- Soprano D
- Soprano Eb (only brass at this time)
The original head on the Low D was made of maple wood as working with wood was most familiar to me from earlier endeavors of making furniture and wooden jewelry. When I created the soprano design I used a new approach combining Delrin and brass and changed the airway from flat to curved. This design was so successful that I incorporated it into all of the low whistles so that the entire collection is uniform.
As a result of demands for a lighter Low D, I recently added an aluminum alloy Low D to the collection and it plays louder and with a cooler, purer tone.
Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy the sound clips and photographs of my creations.
