The 11 inch D Whistle is the most played and favored in Celtic circles. It is great for Irish music, folk music and contemporary Christian music. It plays easily in D major, E minor, G and B minor.
The deeper 12 1/2 inch C whistle has a sweet voice and can play in C major, D minor, A minor and F.
Our penny whistles respond well in both air-conditioned environments and outdoors and will last for decades.
They are finished in beautiful cocobolo hardwood. This is not only an amazing hardwood for instrument making, but each piece is strikingly unique.
The Penny Whistles come with a beautiful flute bag to keep your instrument safe.
What you are saying...
I recently received the D penny whistle I had ordered from you. It was made of the beautiful wood... This instrument is totally AWESOME! I play at least 10 different instruments, some string, some woodwind, piano, etc... This one has not left my side since I received it a few weeks ago!
The first thing I did when I received it was to play a ditty on my old tin whistle. Then I played the same tune on yours. The sound was enough to make a grown man cry! Thank you for my new friend. God Bless you, your business and you ministry,

My gorgeous penny whistle got here yesterday! It's hard to stop playing it! Such a rich, warm sound! And the box really is perfect for it. I actually think it will hold this penny whistle and my old cheapie one. Thanks for doing such a great job! God bless you and your ministry,

I just want to thank you for the beautifully sounding pennywhistle I received today AND THE BOX (you are very kind)! The pennywhistle is nicely in-tune. The tone is richly filled with overtones and one can hear the woody inflections. My husband is a luthier, working a lot on basses and cellos. He has a great ear and loves the sound it produces. I'm a public school music teacher, prof. flutist and music director at a church. I can't wait to play it for and with others in a bigger space. Anyway, thanks again and I hope to save up some money so I can purchase some more of your flutes. I'm sure you will hear from me again.

I just received my D Irish Whistle today, I originally wanted to cancel the order because I'm from Ireland originally and I'm going home in a few weeks
to see my parents and I figured I'd pick one up when I was over there. I'm glad I didn't, your flutes are amazing, the sound from the Irish whistle is
astounding, I was completely amazed when I played it. You have a gift given by God. Thank you again Erik and may God Bless you and your family for many years to come.

I bought a D penny whistle from you last June.
After a few adventures in Scotland, England and Switzerland, I am now
playing it in Haifa Israel and it sounds wonderful. Again, Thanks,

I wanted to say, thank the Lord and you for the beautiful penny whistle! I am glad to have such a lovely, accurate instrument to play! May God continue to bless you as you do His work.
Sincerely, Amanda in Ontario Canada Sept. 5th 2013
Four years ago, I purchased a lovely Celtic Penny Whistle in the key of D that was handcrafted by you and I still play it very frequently. I just wanted you to know how much you have inspired me to love all music and how you showed me what love I could get playing for people. I learned how to play Green Sleeves, Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Tingerbell's song from Netherland, bits and pieces of many other songs, and I learned how to teach myself to create my own creations. I can now share the music that has been dancing around, trapped in my head for years waiting for the perfect opportunity to show itself. Thank you so much for everything.
Sincerely, Sarah Sharp. Sept. 5th, 2013
A couple of days ago the D Penny Whistle that I ordered arrived in the mail. To say I love it would be a massive understatement.
The look of it is exquisite, and the sound is exactly what I'd hoped for. I love the way it can sound either bright and cheerful, or mellow, or melancholy, depending on my own mood. I know, without a doubt, that I'm going to get many, many hours of joy out of this instrument.
Even better, it perfectly suits the Irish folk music piece that the concert band I am a member of is playing at the moment - a piece that has a solo for penny whistle incorporated into it!
I have to thank you and the Lord for your crafting skills, and your willingness to share those skills with the world!
Thank you again, and God bless.
With much appreciation,

I received my Sax and whistle yesterday. It is everything I hoped for. All sound very well . Thanks a lot to all of you.

Hi! I've had my wood Irish D whistle for about a year and I love it. Just wanted to thank you for such a beautiful instrument--I love it more than any other whistle I've bought. I'd been looking for one that was perfect for me and now I have it! Thanks!
Jon in Santa Maria, California. Feb 2010
Thank you for shipping my order so promptly! The Pennywhistle is fantastic and I am so enthusiastic about it.
By the way Erik: I really love your Videos! You have a great sense of humour, you brightened my day, when I was watching them!!!
All the best from Sweden!

I just wanted to thank you for the Celtic design penny whistle I purchased from you. The instrument is beautiful. The sound is amazing and precise.
Much louder than my other whistles and much more forgiving. I have several whistles; Generation, Feado'g, Cooperman persimmon, and a Waltons all in d.
Your whistle is now my favorite. I will order another in the future.
Thank you, Jason E Duffy in East Bethany N.Y. October 2009
Pennywhistle from you arrived yesterday. Sound is amazing, so I want to thank you very much. :)

The Penny-Whistle Just arrived and I want to thank you so much! First of all it looks so beautiful!
But, most important, it has such a beautiful, soft sound, while being the most precise whistle I have ever played. Even Fast Irish Reels are easy to play with it. It is so much better than Feadog, Generation and even Mollenhauer!
Thank you once again,
Lennard in Germany
Hello Erik, I've gotta tell you I love your instruments. My grandparents bought me one of your penny whistles for my birthday and
I love everything about it. It has such a nice tone to it, and I love the smoked wood smell that it gives off when you play it. I've started a Celtic/folk band with one of my friends thanks to your wonderful instrument.Thank you so much for your amazing craftmanship.
God bless! Bryn Martin, Winchester VA. February 20, 2007
Dear Erik,Your flutes are wonderful!
When I encountered your booth at the 2005 Texas Renaissance Festival and bought a pennywhistle in C I felt like I got a part of my old musical self back. At the same festival in 2006 I bought a pennywhistle in Bb harmonic minor and a Kiowa Love Flute and am immensely pleased with the quality of your work. Being able to make music on the instruments that I've bought from you has given my soul back some of the light that I lost when my hands gave out on me and my dreams to play professionally were crushed, so I cannot thank you enough for doing what you do. I look forward to buying more of your flutes in the future! Thank you and God bless. Stevie Carter,

My pennywhistle arrived a week ago and I am absolutely speechless. I have fallen in love with it and I am having fun with it everyday.
It is such a great work, and now I am gaining back my melodious touch that I had lost for 10 years since I somehow stopped playing recorder.
I could not be happier.
I am positive I will get another instrument from you very soon.

Erik, I have had one of your pennywhistles in C for about a week and am totally delighted. What a sweet sounding little thing! I can't seem to put it down for long. I find myself playing it during TV commercials or even while waiting for web pages to load. One of thebuildings I work in is a very large warehouse with metal walls. I get the most incredible sound when playing there. I've had several people ask me where I found such a pretty song maker. Hopefully, a few of them have already contacted you to get one of their very own.
I want to thank you so much for calling and playing both the regular and concert tuned whistles for me over the phone. I was trying to be frugal but decided the mere pittance for the difference in sound was worth it. You've made my days a little brighter.
May the good Lord watch over you.

Dear Erik, I got my Starry Night PennyWhistle in the mail today! What a treat! I was so excited i felt like a little kid on christmas morning!
The craftsmanship is absolutely exquisite and i love that smokey bamboo smell! Thank you so much for being so kind and patient with me over the phone I really do appreciate that. God has truly bless you with a special talent and we are so fortunate that you choose toshare it with us. I pray that you continue to receive blessings, good health and prosperity. I definitely will be ordering more flutes from you very soon!
Music makes life a symphony when God is the conductor.
Peace be with you, God Bless!

Thanks for the Penny Whistle. I don't think i ever wrote to tell you how much I have enjoyed it. It is so easy to play, and has such a sweet sound. I have several inexpensive whistles: Clarks, Feadog, Sweetone, Walton etc.. I even have a whistle from Michael Burke. None of them play like this one. It has become my favorite. It goes with me in my briefcase everywhere. Thanks again. Another superb instrument from Erik.
Tim Hackler, Brookesville Florida. Sept. 20th 2005
Erik-Hi! The penny-whistle looks and sounds so beautiful! I don't know how else to explain this other than this is the sound that God has written in my heart eversince I can remember. Playing this beautiful instrument has awakened a new joy in my heart!!!
God Bless-Judy McAdams Dec 27th 2005
I just got your Penny Whistle, it was outside in the box hidden by the snow that had fallen from my roof. It sounds great! Plays very easy and much better than my metal Generation one. Thanks for doing such a good job. I will hopefully order from you again.
Adam English, Gilford, New Hampshire Feb. 2003
Thanks, Erik -- received the two pennywhistles today. Love the decorative work on both. And these sound far superior and are much easierto play than any of the factory-made whistles I've played before.
Mark Landau April 30 2004
You are a great flute maker, and player and I have purchased a penny whistle from you and it has absolutely brought me endless joy, it is wonderful. The Penny whistle has received vast complements from fellow flutists and they say it has a very harmonious and rich sound.
God Bless you and your family
