Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below!

This is one of the most interesting didgeridoos we've ever had on offer. Acquired from a private collection and in near perfect condition, this didgeridoo is a true showpiece. Painted entirely in natural ochers (earth pigments) with the addition of feathers, spinifex resin, wooden beads, and a carved animal spirit. The feathers, beads and carving are attached to the didgeridoo with ochre-dyed bush string threaded through small holes on the exterior of the didge. The holes do not leak any air as they've been punched through the thickest part of the sapwood. Many hours went into this piece and we've never seen anything quite like it before.

The interior bore is sealed with a grittly textured finish. There is no finish to the exterior, so be careful to keep it from getting rained on (even though this is not the kind of instrument that you travel around with). This is a SHOWPIECE DIDGERIDOO that you'll want up front and center in your collection, or to display entirely on its own. Whilst it has the hallmarks of a yidaki from N.E. Arnhem Land, I have no provenance for this piece. If anyone reading this has seen one similar to it or has an idea who the crafter may be I would greatly appreciate your contacting me. There are a few very fine cracks in the ochre paint on the bell and lower portion of this didge. That said, I don't believe they affect the sound as they are too far down. I didn't want to repair and refinish them because I love the overall look and feel of this instrument just the way it is. Fitted with an organic beeswax mouthpiece sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). The mouthpiece can easily be adjusted to fit you perfectly. Instructions included, no worries.

Soundwise: High Quality

This didgeridoo offers a smoky, evocative acoustic in the DEEPLY HAUNTING key of B and in perfect pitch. Perfect for someone wanting a very low pitched didgeridoo that's easy to play. You get nice clear vocals and warm acoustics which are great for gritty growls and dingo howls. Good bass frequencies radiate from the core. Dramatic pitch bend (by dropping your jaw a bit as you play) and good response to tongued beats and trill. It's not super loud so it would be great for an apartment dweller. Three easy horn tones, one warm and two bright against the drone. Optimal strong-medium backpressure for its size and pitch make the circular breathing technique easier. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Watch the video below to see Nick demo this didgeridoo for you. We don't rehearse these videos so this is virtually you picking it up playing it for the first time!  Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
