Tony Dixon Low D Polymer Whistle/Flute Duo
TDLW3. Tapered-bore D whistle/flute set. This is a combination set of polymer flute and whistle in key of D. You get three pieces: a main body piece with six holes, a flute head and a whistle head as well (see below for pictures of the separate heads and bodies). The flute and whistle heads are interchangeable, which means that you get both a flute and a tenor whistle in this set. $120.
Separate Pieces for Polymer Whistle and Flute
Separate pieces: Individual pieces of the above Tony Dixon instruments can be bought separately (e.g., if you bought a whistle and want to add the flute head). All black polymer low D Tony Dixon pieces fit each other at any given time. Over the years, Dixon has made some minor design changes, and it is possible that the current pieces may not fit or be in tune with older ones. We check with you on this if you order additional pieces for the instrument you have.
TDWH. Revoiced whistle head. $50
TDFH. Flute head. $41
TDBD. Tapered-bore low D body. $54

Tony Dixon Aluminum Low D Whistle/Flute Duo
TDLW6. Low D tunable aluminum set. Three pieces -- aluminum body plus both whistle and flute polymer heads. You effectively get both a whistle and a flute. Tunable, of course. $155
Tony Dixon Solid Polymer Low D Whistle
TDLW10A: The Tony Dixon solid black polymer whistle, key of D. This is a fine, three-piece whistle that is carved from solid blocks of black polymer. It is heavy in weight, with a conical bore, and bears no resemblance to the inexpensive polymer ones above. Cork joints. This whistle has a nice, heavy feel to it; professional musicians have found this whistle to be especially useful for performing under difficult weather conditions. About 23 1/2" long. Comes in a black cloth case, shown at left. $199.
Tony Dixon Solid Polymer Four-Piece Whistle/Flute Combo
TDLW10B. Four-piece D combo: whistle head, flute head, and two-piece body. This is the same whistle as the TDL10 above, plus a flute head made of the same material. You get both a very good low whistle and flute out of this. $250.
The four-piece combo comes in a four-section cloth case shown at left.
TDLW10C. Whistle head only. For those who bought the solid polymer flute but would now like the whistle head. $57
TDLW10D. Flute head only. For those who bought the solid polymer whistle but would now like the whistle head. $57
Case for Low and Alto Whistles
These also fit Irish flutes.
LW3. This padded case will hold both a low D whistle, and a penny whistle or a flute head. We show it below folded over (the penny whistle or flute head goes in the short section); a piece of velcro holds this folded part in place. When opened up completely, the whole thing is 38" long overall. $15
For other cases that fit low whistles, see our page of practice chanter cases.
