    Me, too, no idea why, as like yourself, I don't like the high ones normally.

    My main whistles are now my aluminiuns in C, A, & low F, with my low D (brass) as back up.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Never tried a low D, but I dabble with the high D. Actually, I have discovered the Native American Flute. They multiply, just like guitars and ukes (I have 7).

    My friend Steafan has co-written a book on Low Whistle. Steafan's wife Saskia plays fiddle in our jug band, but often plays Irish Trad with their family band, Clan Hannigan. Steafan also plays bodhran, uilleann pipes, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and anything else he gets his hands on.

    Yes, I have a low D and have played many. Mine is a WD Sweet, Onyx. It’s an absolutely lovely instrument. I’ve played whistle for over 20 years and it is my main instrument. I own whistles in every key from low C to high Eb. I play them at church with some of our worship teams. I’ve found it to be a very versatile instrument that can play all styles of music and can be quite expressive. Have fun! If you have specific questions shoot me a message....meanwhile the suggestion of chiff and whistle is excellent.
