Concert Quality Yidaki

This is an EXQUISITE
yidaki that belongs in the hands of a serious player/collector.
Burrngupurrngu a.k.a. Bruce (pictured at right), is one of the foremost yidaki makers and a
senior lawman for the Dhalwangu clan. Whilst busy with ceremonial
responsibilities for months at a time, Burrngupurrngu demands of himself
a consistent standard. He is well respected amongst Yolngu
communities for his knowledge of yidaki making and playing. Even as a
young man he was sought after to play in ceremony. The artwork represents Dhalwangu clan designs that are very significant to his tribe.
Acquired from the Ben Hicks collection, circa 2006. This is an "old school" instrument in excellent
condition, much more collectable than your average didgeridoo, and we
honor that by using the proper Yolngu word for didgeridoo, "yidaki",
here. The interior bore is very clear and open which
increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. Features a natural mouthpiece sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). No beeswax needed, but a very small amount (original to the instrument) is on there purely for a bit of extra comfort.Soundwise: Concert Quality
Ben Hicks says of this instrument, "A lovely all around sweet balanced yidaki for me since 2006, easy to play, sweet backpressure, great easy response to traditional tongue technique, nicely balanced acoustics, warm drone with a lot of harmonic complexity and easy toot." When a yidaki sounds and responds this well you're almost at a loss for words ro describe it, but let me add: Gravel-voiced
distortion effects. Blunt diaphragmatic response with perfectly balanced
acoustics. Polished harmonics atop a deeply earthy vibe. It has strong backpressure for its size and pitch making the circular breathing technique very easeful. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Watch
