A proper whistle is essential for sports coaches and referees alike to help players run drills in practice, command their attention, or stop a play during a game. Do you want to repeat essential etc… It is as personal as your approach to the game. For a premium selection of sports referee whistles and sports coach whistles, The Music House has you covered.

From our brick-and-mortar beginnings in 1965, we supplied only the best quality brands of orchestral and band musical instruments — including orchestral whistles such as the Acme Nightingale and the Cuckoo used in symphonic works. That led to local requests to stock premium sports whistles.
