Tony Dixon one-piece
polymer D flute
TDLF1. One-piece black polymer D Irish flute with tapered-bore body (shown above). Has embouchure plate, although this does not show well in the photo. 23 1/2 inches long. $45.
Tony Dixon low D polymer tunable (two-piece) whistle
TDLW2. Two-piece (tunable) low (tenor) whistle in key of D, tapered bore. Overall length is 22 3/4", head only is 6 1/8". Black polymer. $98
Tony Dixon polymer tunable (two-piece) D flute
Two-piece black polymer Irish flute
in key of D, tapered bore. Lightweight, tunable by moving the pieces
at the join, with embouchure plate (this is a piece that fits over the
blowhole). Some flute players like to turn the flute
head so that the blowhole is not in line with the finger holes, because
they find it easier to reach the holes that way. 23 inches long. $77
Tony Dixon low D polymer whistle/flute duo
TDLWF3. Tapered-bore low D whistle/flute set. This is a combination set of the polymer flute and whistle shown above in key of D. You get three pieces: a main body piece with six holes, a flute head, and a whistle head (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 the polymer whistle and flute shown above
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; however, 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. Whistle head. $50
TDFH. Flute head. $41
TDBD. Tapered-bore low D body. $54
