deQuelery Irish Whistles

At deQuelery we have two different Irish Whistles; Pro Series and Artist Series, both available as Low or High Whistle (and Alto on special order). These whistles carry the Celtic name ‘Beannú, which means ‘Greeting’, or ‘Blessing’. Come visit our workshop, check out Facebook or send us an email via
In  addition to this, we have just launched a special Trinity version of our Whistles. Elbert Smelt plays our Pro line Irish Whistles, completely made out of aluminium.
The Artist Series is alo completely hand made, except for the flute head. Here, the flute head is a special design 3D printed brass piece. This makes it an excellent flute for both beginning as well as advanced players. Both Pro- and Artist flutes have a tuneable body.
Te Irish Whistles from the Artist Series we have in stock, also because Trinity decided to sell them after their concerts! The Pro Series we only accept back orders because of the fact that manufactering takes a lot longer. Delivery time is about two weeks. These Whistles are known for their deep and warm sound (see and hear soundbites below). Come visit our workshop or visit a Trinity  concert and check them out!
