Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below!

This vintage, age seasoned mago (didgeridoo) was acquired by Ben Hicks in 2008. It's in very fine condition and offers a phat sonic pulse with perfectly balanced acoustics. Very easy to play. Bob Burduwal (Rembarrnga aboriginal) crafted and painted this seasoned mago style didgeridoo from yellow box eucalyptus. Bob is from Maningrida in far north Arnhem Land. This remote area is located in Australia's Northern Territory about 300km east of Jabiru. Bob painted this rugged didgeridoo with his own handprints using natural earth pigments and gypsum clay. Truly old school, and instruments like these are getting harder to find these days. Hand prints have been used as signatures in rock art all over the world, but nowhere more prevalent than Australia, especially in the ancient caves of the Northern Territory.

This CONCERT QUALITY mago was crafted from termite hollowed eucalyptus. Suitable for any player from the beginner to advanced level. The bore is very clear which increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. Fitted with a traditional sugarbag 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: Concert Quality

Ben Hicks says, "A light resonant mago purchased from Maningrida in 2008, it came smudged and worn like it received a fair bit of playing before being brought to market. The warm resonance really feels good to me, and it has balanced response to western retroflex Dit-m-rlo phrasing and "passive vocal response". When played regularly with more moisture retained in the wood, it kicks out a stronger range of churningly high harmonics." This handsome mago responds well to any tempo so you can play it fast or slow depending upon your mood or what moves you. It's rumbly and grumbly with a full spectrum drone that sonically transports you on a vision quest from the comfort of your armchair. Wordless vocals, animal calls, and light harmonic overtones blend perfectly within its vibrant acoustics. It has three easy horn toots, and optimal strong-medium backpressure makes the circular breathing technique easeful. Simply a brilliant player. Highly collectable. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like a demo over the phone. This one's a beauty and it may not last long around here so call straight away if you see your name on it. Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
