What Makes Our Whistles Different To Others On The Market?
Here at Lír we believe that our whistles can effortlessly flow across three octaves. Volume, tone and accuracy are all crucial when it comes to cutting across in any Irish traditional music session or gig. The weight of our whistles gives us the durability and stability needed when playing in the higher octaves. We work with some of the best whistle players in the world and receive feedback in which we use to improve our design.
Our whistles are all made from brass which we believe gives a rich and bright tone. We finish off the whistles with a silverplating process over the brass. This silver plating gives the whistle an elegant look as well as maintaining a clean look for longer.
The head of the whistle consists of a polished Delrin® with the silver plated brass. To finish off the head we laser engrave our logo into the whistle adding the final touch.
Our whistles are fully tuneable and can be adjusted to suit the players requirement. The whistle is set sharp which allows the player to manipulate the slide to perfectly in tune or flat.
Our whistles have very little maintenance but there are a few things we'd encourage to keep your whistle in the best condition.
After each use clean the bore of the whistle with a mop to remove moisture.
If the tuning slide of the whistle becomes stiff apply a small amount of cork grease. You can also disinfect the whistle with any alcohol wipes.
Use a silver cleaning cloth to keep your whistle looking superb.
