We are incredibly proud to present the second entry into our Ventus Series of ethnic solo woodwind instruments: the Irish Tin Whistle! A gorgeous recorder with ancient roots, the tin whistle is a mainstay of traditional Celtic music and has been featured prominently in scores like the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Our Tin Whistle includes all key playing techniques – not just attack ornaments, releases, true legato and portamento, but also mid-ornaments that are essential to tin whistle playing like strikes, cuts, crans, and rolls. We’ve also provided a stunning array of nearly 450 phrases to inspire your music!

The soaring, pure sound of this instrument is instantly authentic right out of the box with no tweaking needed, and you can add endlessly varied ornaments just by turning the knob in our custom Ornaments system. Or dive in deep with Total Articulation Control Technology (TACT) and customize everything.
