Concert Quality Didgeridoo
Our sound quality ratings:
Crafted by Nicola MainvilleListen to the AUDIO demo of this didgeridoo above! This hand blown glass didgeridoo includes a custom fit padded carry bag (see photo below). It ships from Nicola's workshop in Canada, and the cost of UPS Worldship and insurance is already included in the price (within the continental U.S. only. Foreign destinations will have an additional $40 - $75 which will need to be added separately. We will contact you with a quote).
Nicola says, "Hand blown glass is a wonderful material visually, and with a great potential of resonance. With a high density (2-6 time heavier than water) glass vibrates easily, resonating without muting. The multiple possibilities of texture, transparency, opacity and
coloration, give me the opportunity to create pieces with an excellent
acoustic and visual appeal. And contrary to what
we may think, it is quite difficult to break these objects unless you
give them a violent shock that would break most musical instruments (violin, guitar, flute, etc.)"
After studying woodworking and glass at the College of Old Montreal, Nicola focused his work on the creation of sculptural and functional glass
didgeridoos and percussion. After completing his studies in the craft, he
deepened his knowledge of glass blowing, cast glass, and woodworking, as well as his ability to tune glass.
Since 2004 he's worked as an autonomous creator of glass
musical instruments. Nicola has received three grants of research of the
Quebec Art Council that have allowed him to significantly develop glass musical instruments. He has been part of many collective
exhibitions including SOFA Chicago, Palm-Beach, New-York, and Choengju International Craft of South Korea. He also presents musical
performances on his hand made instruments. This hand blown glass didgeridoo features an oak mouthpiece, no beeswax is needed. The bell end is protected by a ring of cork fused to the glass. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
PLEASE NOTE: This didgeridoo ships via UPS from Nicola's workshop in Canada. The UPS Worldship cost of $137 to any address in the continental U.S. is already added to the price of this didgeridoo.
