Concert Quality Mago from Australia
Crafted by Billy Yallawonga
Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below!
Billy is from the Manyallaluk aboriginal community near Katherine in Australia's western Arnhem Land region. Years ago we were able to find instruments by Billy on a regular basis. But today, with Billy in his 70s, he no longer makes or paints didgeridoos. This handsome old mago, circa 1996, was acquired from a private collection.
This is a collector's piece made by
of the Roper River region of the Northern Territory of Australia. It features handsome ochre artwork with a turtle and snake motif, and the patina from years of loving use. There is no evidence of patches or repairs of any kind. This is not a stick to drag out to the beach or leave in your hot car. It's a piece that feels like it belongs in a museum. This is a serious investment in a very fine example of traditional Aboriginal art. The interior bore is clear and open which increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. The bell end has been expertly chiseled clean beyond what the termites had eaten, which really opens up the sound even further. Fitted with an organic beeswax mouthpiece sanitized with
(tea tree and lavender oil). The mouthpiece can easily be adjusted to fit you perfectly. Instructions included, no worries.
The interior is nice and open for excellent vocal projection. Quite
C. Most of Billy's sticks I believe were
and so were crafted to optimize that Western Arnhem Land style utilizing lots of animal calls and such. The weight is 8 pounds 4 ounces which represents the density of the wood not the thickness as this instrument was lovingly whittled down by an absolute master. Billy is getting old and he no longer makes didgeridoos. This instrument is bound to uptick in value in the coming years, especially as a huge segment of the U.S. population is becoming aware of didgeridoo and want their own connection to appreciate and preserve a shrinking supply of authentic vintage instruments. Optimal
for its size and pitch (making the
technique easier). Fine instruments of this ilk only come around every so often, so if you've been dreaming of owning a serious, well seasoned mago then take it away quickly or it'll be gone. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like a demo over the phone
