deQuelery Irish Whistles

At deQuelery we have three different Irish Whistles; Standard Series, Artist Series and Pro Series. The Standard Series is available as Low D, while both Artist and Pro Series are available as Low or High Whistle (and Alto on special order). The Pro Series whistles carry the Celtic name ‘Beannú, which means ‘Greeting’, or ‘Blessing’. Come visit our workshop, check out Facebook or send us an email via [email protected].
In 2016, we launched a special Trinity version of our Whistles. Elbert Smelt plays our Pro line Irish Whistles, completely made out of aluminium.
All of our whistles are completely hand made, except for the flute head. The flute head is our own design and 3D printed. This makes it an excellent flute for both beginning as well as advanced players. Both Pro- and Artist flutes have a tuneable body.
The Irish Whistles Standard and Artist Series we usually have in stock. The Pro Series are made to order because of the fact that manufacturing takes longer. Average delivery time is about two weeks. These Whistles are known for their deep and warm sound (see and hear soundbites at the bottom of this page). Come visit our workshop or visit a Trinity  concert and check them out!
