About Cillian Ó Briain
Cillian Ó Briain of Dingle, County Kerry is one of the most respected uilleann pipe makers in Ireland. His current waiting list for a set of pipes spans about 6-8 years and once they’re ready you’ll need to shell out about $10,000! If you’ve heard his pipes you know that they are well worth the investment. The same is true of his tweaked whistles but you’ll pay a whole lot less! Somehow, even with his full schedule, he with the help of his wife Bríd manages to supply us with these lovely little gems, for which the tin whistling world rejoices!

HappySoulon 10/8/13I have not been playing whistle for very long, but have already invested in several whistles in order to find the one that was just right for me. I have a Clarke Sweetone (a great beginner whistle; Clarke Original (requires too much breath to my liking) and a nickel plated brass Oak (but I just can't get the right sound out of it). The O'Briain was recommended to me by an instructor and I can't say how happy I am with this whistle. It has great response, bright sound, and is a good fit to my breath control (as a former clarinet/sax player I tend to use too much for the whistle and make it "shriek").
