Chieftain Low D Whistle, V4 - New V4 model. Alloy instrument with rounded mouthpiece. Superb clear sound. A market leading alloy low D whistle with rounded mouthpiece and a warm, rich tone. These are very popular, as they are appeal to low whistle players of all standards. They are easy to play, ideal for those new to low whistles, but they are professional-grade instruments and are used on stage by many leading players. Hieftain is the brand name of a line of whistles manufactured by Phil Hardy of Kerry Whistles. They are easy to finger as the bottom hole is designed at a comfortable stretch. This whistle is very easy to blow in the first octave and has good back pressure, they produce a superb clear sound comparable to more expensive low whistles. Made by Chieftain Whistles.

I will not go in details, I will just say that this is not the fault of the manufacturer (Phil Hardy). I got one directly from them and it was PERFECT, and keep a note here, I first bought and then told them my experience here.
Anyway, this is a whistle from heaven. The build and sound can only be better what you expect. I have had whistles from other major brands and I would say anything else compared to a Chieftain looks like they went out in the world half done.
Invest your money, you will not regret it.
Honestly at this point, i like the Dixon MUCH better. It has an incredible warm tone - very flute-like. it can be played quite softly. it reaches the second octave easily except the high B ... and that's probably just because of my inexperience. And it's physically warm. it never feels cold and hard.
The Chieftan, as i heard in one of the reviews, does need to be physically warmed up. with the Dixon i can just pick it up and start playing. With the chieftan, i need to hold it in my hands, sit on it, put it next to the fire or prepare it in some manner before using it.
I also know why some metal whistles come with plastic/composite fipples (mouthpiece). the aluminum mouthpiece always feels cold.
However, i have a feeling that i will get to like it as i use it. i've managed to get some very nice sounds from it and certainly it's received very good reviews in other sites, and there are a number of very good youtube demonstrations. the construction is also very nice. it looks good and has a nice solid feel(but cold!).
These are my initial reactions. I'm by no means an experienced player. But i think i would have appreciated seeing something like this before i bought it ... especially the bit about how cold it always feels.
