There's some story in this big stick... Pictured below right is famous aboriginal didgeridoo player David Hudson standing with this "forked" double-didge. David borrowed it from us and played it to a sold-out crowd of over 6,000 people at the Gibson amphitheater in Los Angeles. He was a special guest of famous Armenian singer Armen Gondrachyan and his orchestra of 22 musicians. This rare forked didgeridoo was not only in the pitch David needed, but it had such an exotic look––great for the stage. Everything worked out perfectly and the performance was a huge success.
That said, David can make just about any didgeridoo sound terrific. He can certainly play this one better than I can. Forked didgeridoos are hard to find, and when you find a good one it takes time to get the best out of them. Now, you would think that 2 people could play this didge at the same time, but actually that doesn't work––you simply cancel each other out. Instead, 1 player gets 4 drones and multiple horn toots. You change the pitch by covering and uncovering the mouthpiece you're not playing into with the palm of your hand. This didgeridoo was made and decorated by the Peckham family (Tubbah Gah aboriginal) from Dubbo in western New South Wales, Australia. The artwork is both carved into the wood and painted with acrylics, depicting an aerial perspective of Wanapi the Rainbow Serpent winding its way through the rugged bushland country. I named it Perenti Tongue! because it looks like a giant lizard tongue. This is an incredible showpiece instrument that deserves a special place to be displayed in your home or office. Crafted
from termite hollowed eucalyptus. This didgeridoo is well over 6 feet tall and the mouthpieces are separated by a span of 22". The interior
bore is very clear and open which increases volume, harmonics, and
clarity of tone. A semi-gloss finish protects the wood and artwork from
elements. Both mouthpieces are fitted with organic beeswax and sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). The mouthpieces can easily be adjusted to fit you perfectly.
Instructions included, no worries.Soundwise: High Quality
Super deep in pitch! This didgeridoo sounds as earthy and handsome as it looks. Perfect for someone wanting a very low pitched didgeridoo that offers beauty, challenge and intrigue. You get nice clear vocals and warm acoustics which are great for gritty growls and dingo howls. Good bass frequencies radiate from the core, balanced with a slight metallic edge in the high end. Dramatic pitch bend (by dropping your jaw a bit as you play) and crisp response to tongued beats and trill. It's not super loud so it would be great for an apartment or condo dweller. Multiple horn toots sing warmly against the
fundamental drone. Medium backpressure. As a showpiece alone we don't
expect it to last long around here very long. Please don't hesitate to contact us
