Susato Kildare LX-Series Whistle (complete whistle, separate head, or separate body)

$57.77$188.99

The LX-series (“LX” stands for “extra large bore”) includes just two whistles, in low C-sharp and low C, slightly lower than the low D whistle. (High D is the key of the standard Irish session whistle. A low D whistle plays an octave lower, in the same register as the Irish flute.)

On this page you can buy complete LX-Series whistles, head pieces without bodies, or bodies without heads.

The LX-Series whistles, being very long, are only offered with 3 comfort keys installed, on holes 1, 3 and 6. See below for details.

Description

Longer whistles, such as those in the M, L and LX Series, can be more comfortably played with one or more Susato Comfort Keys placed over tone holes that are too far apart for smaller or compromised hands. The LX-Series whistles, being very long, are only offered with 3 comfort keys installed, on holes 1, 3 and 6. Holes 1 and 3 are operated, respectively, by the index and ring fingers of the upper hand (the hand nearest the mouthpiece), while hole 6 is operated by the ring finger of the lower hand (the hand nearest the bottom of the whistle).
