I received my bodhrán yesterday — wow, that was fast service. It is very well made and sounds beautiful. The tippers are also very, very nice, I love them all!
Ana Mitchell - Chapel Hill, North Carolina
WOW WOW WOW!!! It is here and it is one BEAUTIFUL BODHRÁN. The finish is so professional — the workmanship is superb — the quality overall is at the height of artistic craftsmanship — the sound is total tone. My thanks to Blayne and you and all at Whistle and Drum, and if anyone talks with Christian, please convey my excitement and that I will honor it by playing it well.

The drum came today. What a great little drum! Just as full of character as my GPS. Christian certainly knows how to treat a skin. The Light Line skin is different, by far, but the tone is just as satisfying. It simply blows my other 14 inch drum away, a Vignoles I bought from you guys way back when. I have not played it much since I got the GPS since there was no comparison in tone or tonality, but this little Light Line, given its size, can hold its head up in any company. I like it. Maybe you could tell. The internal tuners work great! And I won't have to worry about TSA confiscating my tuning tool, or arresting me. So, I have my travel drum. Thank you, and my thanks to Christian.

I want to shout out a huge thanks for shipping my order today. You said you did not ship routinely on Fridays .. and I see it shipped today. THANK YOU! The help I received on the phone yesterday was awesome and refreshingly deep and genuine. Keep up the good work .. and keep it sane through the Holidays ... eh? P.S. I am like a 7 year old trapped in the body of a 56 year old .. waiting for my new drum.
David Keeffe - Wausau, Wisconsin
We were so pleased with the prompt delivery of our 3 tin whistles. We did our research, and the Clarke Celtic tin whistle you offer is perfect for our 3 little beginners...and we love the low price. Thanks for the speedy delivery.

I just wanted to drop you an email to let you guys know that you do a great job! I got my new 37 cm Tineo drum in yesterday and it sings! You and Christian Hedwitschak were very patient with me and I thank you all.
Jim McDermott - Pennsylvania
Thanks for shipping the order so fast. And I can't believe the Generation whistle you sent me. Clear as a bird from the very bottom to the very top! Unbelievable! The Susato is nice as well and I'll be playing all my C tunes on it at our session on Sunday.

Ordered my ME12 Tipper & it arrived today. 2 days in the mail ! I want to tell everyone that I have ordered my share of "custom" tippers in the past, but the quality of Whistle & Drum's tippers are second to none. Perfectly turned, perfectly finished, and not a single tiny flaw. Also, a very friendly staff. What more could a person ask for? I'm a new customer and like it or not, I'll never go away. A very big thanks to all of you!
THANKS so much for your extremely prompt service the bodhran, tippers, case and book arrived today. Only two days from Colorado to an island off the coast of Virginia! The drum is marvelous to play, to hear and see. Thanks for providing such high quality gear in such a timely, hassle-free way!
Bill Troxler - Chincoteague Island, VA
I received the bodhran two days after it was shipped. I'm very pleased with the drum and thank you for remembering me. The packing in the box was done very nice also. Nice doing business with you and thanks again. I will try to get you more orders with some of my friends.

Thank you Blayne for being so helpful. I'm impressed by your supply of whistles on hand. I have browsed your site and like it. I will be using you in the future not only for my whistle needs but also sheet music for the tin whistle tunes.
John O., USA
I had ordered a handful of penny whistles from Lark. Waited a month and they did not arrive. I was told it would be another month. After that month, they told me is could be at least several weeks or longer ..... I canceled the Lark order and immediately came to Whistle & Drum online. In less than a week I had the exact whistles my daughter needed without any further hassels, waits, excuses nor missed performances! No more tears -- Whistle & Drum to the rescue! We are now loyal Whistle & Drum supporters! Thank you for the quick service and reasonably priced instruments.
Thank you, Blayne. It's a pleasure do deal with someone as courteous as you are.
I have to say that I'm incredibly impressed both with the quality of the products I've ordered, and particularly with the quick delivery for a low shipping price. Thanks for the great service!
I just wanted to let you know that I received my Irish Tin Whistle set today and to tell you thank you very much. I have been learning to play on a cheap tin whistle that I bought at a tourist attraction here in town and am thrilled to finally have a real one. The difference in tone is beautiful. Thank you again.
Patricia L., USA
I received my drum yesterday and it was worth the wait. It's a beautiful instrument and sounds great. Thanks again for all your assistance. It was a good shopping experience and I hope I can be your customer again soon. I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
Neil H., Canada
I am directing my bodhr?students your way in hopes they will purchase Christian's drums. Please encourage them if possible, they seem to find drums from other makers which are very difficult to get to play well.
Richard S., USA
I got my whistle today! Thanks for checking for me, I was just too excited to wait! Got my whistle, love it, great product, great price...thanks a million!!! :) You guys are a great site and don't deserve any complaints! Happy Wednesday and whistling to you! :)
DJ H., USA
Greetings from Prince George, BC. Thank you for the bodhran you sent back in February. It has an excellent tone and plays very well! May you have a blessed spring.
Joe G., Canada
The wonderful whistle arrived this morning...it? just what I wanted, indeed! And above all it arrived well in time...Thank you so much!
Gandalf A., Sweden
I wanted to send you this email to let you know that I really enjoy the Feadog whistle that my wife purchased from you about two weeks ago. I figured I would ask for something rather inexpensive for Father's day. So I showed her the Feadog 3 piece combo set. I really like the tone and the tutor is good too. Thanks again.
They arrived!! WOW that was quick. I live in northern B.C. and it was here in under 2 weeks! My new feadog play great and i am having loads of fun. I will be ordering again and telling all my friends about you guys. Many Thanks
Steve Bishop, Canada
Received the bones and LOVE them. The Percy Danforth tape is GREAT. Not only does he teach you how to get going, but the musicians he preforms with and the music they play is worth the tape even if you don't play the bones. It blew me away. The Clarke's, as always, are great. I love the c whistle. I might be playing it more then the d--I like the way it responds. Once more, thank you for the great customer service. In this day and age of lets mass market it and make money and who gives a flip about the customer, you, sir, are one of a kind. Thank you and have a blessed day.
Jason Foster, USA
I just wanted to tell you again how much I appreciate the help you gave me in choosing and purchasing my whistles. The counsel you provided, line of top quality products and "extra mile" service is unbeatable! Your company deserves a five star rating.
Caleb Scarbrough, USA
My custom Hedwitschak made its big public debut at the KC Irish festival. Those in the know just smiled. those who weren't said "Wow!I never heard a drum sound that good!" Incredible tone, and the Dragonskin plays like a dream. Christian's the man . . .
Tom Schultz, USA
My coworker is a musician who has developed an interested in Irish music. I told him I played the tin whistle, (I also play mandolin and recorder), he asked me to get him a 'nice' tin whistle. I recently purchased two Feadog Tin Whistles in D, a black one for him and a green one for me, from your website. These whistles are just what I expected, fine Irish instruments. We are both very pleased with these whistles. I own two other whistles, a Walton and a Tipperary. This will be a nice addition to the collection. I am interested in learning to play the Low Whistle in D. I am considering the Tony Dixon Irish Whistle & Flute Duo. I told my wife "you can never have too many whistles". Thank you for providing great instruments at great prices. There's now one more whistle player in the world. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. This Irishman looks forward to purchasing more whistles for you in the future. Sláinte
I received my Feadog Pro D and Dixon Trad (which you highly recommended). The Pro D plays as I have read about - a little less sensitive than the standard brass. The Trad is just as you described, Blayne. It sounds good and is smooth to play - I am truly enjoying it. Thank you so much for your time and advice. It was above and beyond and I will buy from Whistle & Drum again!
I received my whistles last March 8 and it's really cool...I loved how it sound...Im planning to order whistles in a different key some time soon... =)

Quick delivery of the best whistle I've ever bought!
