Welcome to Merlin Music

Welcome to the Merlin Music website

From a happy customer: “Got my new Soprano D7 today.  Wow, it is amazing!

Have a look around our site and check out our range of handmade whistles. As ever we also continue to compile and publish our self-standing books of session tunes. We are always developing new products to complement our expanding range of quality items for the discerning folk musician, and have recently significantly extended our array with ranges of tuneable polymer, aluminium and brass whistles. Check back here for new additions, and feel free to drop us a line with your comments and suggestions.

Session Books

Four Session Books are now available, each containing one hundred great session tunes. Designed especially to make learning and playing easy, the books are spiral-bound and hard-backed in A5 landscape format with one tune per page. There’s no need for a music stand, just select your tune, flip over the front cover, and Merlin’s Session Books will stand upright, leaving your hands free for playing music and drinking the beverage of your choice.

Handmade Whistles

Every Merlin whistle is hand-made here in our workshop on Easdale Island. No part is machine-made or moulded, so the whistle that you buy from us will be unique to you. Your whistle will be delivered to you in a neat black carrying case, with a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by our Master Whistlemaker. All our whistles are tuneable, allowing the instruments to be flattened or sharpened if required. Gently ease the body out of the tuning section to lengthen the body and flatten the sound, or ease it into the tuning section to shorten the body and sharpen the sound. (Do be aware that ambient temperature can affect tuning.) We hope that you enjoy playing your own music with your Merlin Music whistle! Browse our range here.
