The Eb whistle has for many years been available in the high pitch variety. mainly by our friends at the Generation Whistle company. The low version has a crisper sound and the span is much easier for those who find the span difficult on a low D.
The C# whistle is the same pitch as the old baroc pitch, about a semi-tone flat on modern pitch. It is a good key for slow airs.
This is why the the old uilleann chanters were pitched flat. The C# and B chanters in modern pitch were actualy D and C on the old pitch
