"Voice of Ancients"
Concert Quality Didgeridoo from Australia

Eddie Ryan didgeridooCrafted by Eddie Ryan

Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below!

Eddie Ryan is from the Beswick and Katherine aboriginal communities in Australia's Arnhem Land region. Years ago we were able to find instruments by Eddie on a regular basis. This handsome didgeridoo, circa 2002, was acquired from a fellow didgeridoo importer and has never been privately owned or played regularly. The timber is well age-seasoned with no signs of repair ever needed. It shows just a small bit of wear, but certainly nothing of note in my opinion. It has a BIG 4" bell on the bottom end.

This is a collector's piece featuring handsome artwork with a freshwater fish and serpent motif –– a fine example of traditional Aboriginal art from Arnhem Land. The interior bore is clear and open which increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. The bell end has been expertly chiseled clean by its crafter beyond what the termites had eaten, which really opens up the sound even further. 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: Concert Quality

The medium-sized bore delivers VIBRANT TONEWAVES. It's sparky and responsive with a live acoustic (bit of a metallic edge in the high end frequencies). The radiant drone is balanced with articulate vocal effects and resonant harmonic overtones that calm the storm whilst warming the heart. Versatile pitch in E with a snappy first horn toot in G. Easy to play and to get the best out of it straight away. This is truly a wonderful player offering heaps of tonal luminosity and whip snapping response to tongued rhythms.

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 finer quality didgeridoos and want their own connection to appreciate and preserve a shrinking supply of authentic vintage instruments. It's unknown how many more instruments like this one will appear for sale over the coming years, but it's safe to say that there won't be very many. And remember, this particular one has never been owned privately or played regularly - such a find. Optimal strong backpressure for its size and pitch (making the circular breathing 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 didgeridoo 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. Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Includes Certificate of Authenticity, care guide, and playing guide.
