the birth of the Bamboo Multi Drone didgeridoo! "What really excites
me", says Mob-man Will, "is these instruments enable me to craft solid multi
drone instruments that are more affordable. After months of
brainstorming it took some time to find a material that could achieve
the specific shape necessary for this type of instrument and still
maintain a natural and powerful sound. The idea of assembling multiple
diameters of high quality bamboo struck me like lightning as the perfect
option. I dropped all wood projects at the time and dove head-first
into making these meet my quality standards. The new material and
construction techniques make for an amazingly well balanced instrument
that is excellent for playing complex modern styles. The thicker bamboo
used for the middle and bell section is amazingly hard and up to 2 cm thick.These
new creations feature the same hand carved mouthpieces that I craft on
my wood instruments. For me a good mouthpiece is the most important part
of a didgeridoo. Give me a good mouthpiece on a milk carton and I’ll
still be able to make it sound funky! The point is, when treated like
wood in regards to shape, design and selection of the right bamboo, this
stuff is incredible! As a player who likes to play many notes - and
play them fast - the density of the bamboo offers a very solid clear
projection of whatever power I throw into it. Each one is an all around
dream for learning the multi drone technique and each one ripples with
energy as you play it. Prepare to be amazed by the transformation of a
material widely considered to be of very limited use for didgeridoos.
Let the limitless EXPLODE!!!" Whether
you're just starting out or you are a master seeking the expanded range
of the multi drone, this instrument will be an accelerating amplifier
to your sonic expression. The concave mouthpiece conforms to your face
for a perfect fit and a comfortable, superior seal. This makes a larger
mouthpiece easily manageable to provide the maximum amount of subtle lip
control that is unattainable on flat small mouthpieces. This subtle lip
control is what makes hitting lower drone frequencies possible. This
didgeridoo has been balanced so that it’s concave mouth piece aligns
perfectly with your mouth in a naturally held position. This type of
mouthpiece is recommended for playing out of the front of the mouth to
achieve the drop octave technique (for more on this see the video Side vs Front on www.wetdidgeridoo.com)."
is a handsome didgeridoo with a solid, gorgeous finish. Double resin
coated inside and out for enhanced sound quality, luster and durability.
Features a smooth and comfortable mouthpiece that's been sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). This didgeridoo is waterproof, unaffected by hot or cold weather conditions, and very easy to care for, no worries.
Soundwise: Concert Quality
says, "This open bore Drop Octave didge has a very rich drone quality in both the fundamental and the drop octave note. Its high key makes it most suited for fast, powerful styles and heavy wobble based styles like the player Zalem's from France. The drop octave will be easier to find on this because of the high key. This is a wonderful introductory stick to drop octave playing, not because of ease but because it behaves almost as if the drop octave is the fundamental. This means that harmonics, wobble and all normal techniques can come across with powerful energy in the low range. The energetic low range my leave you using the the fundamental drone more like an accent and sticking with the octave below as the root of your rhythms. If you are completely new to the Drop Octave and Multidrone techniques check out www.wetdidgeridoo.com
to learn what they are and learn the lingo. The video samples should
give a better idea of the range and character of the sound of each
instrument and I try to jump around to several styles with each to
simply show the range. If you are adventurous enough and eager to learn
you may want to simply snatch up what looks or sounds good to you, if
the instrument inspires you in some way you will figure it out as I
did––without the information :-) If you’re having difficulty choosing, Click Here for Useful Tips that will help you decide." Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
