Concert Quality Multi Drone Didgeridoo
Crafted by Will Thoren
Watch a VIDEO demo of this didgeridoo below!
This STUNNING multi-drone didgeridoo is OVER 7 FEET LONG and crafted from an Arizona cypress tree. It has a black walnut mouthpiece and a BIG 6" BELL end made of purple heart. This
didge is customized for a new technique that Will, the Wet Yeti,
developed to play MULTIPLE and SUPER LOW drone notes. The basic technique involves
dropping the fundamental drone or pitch of a didge an exact octave below
what it normally is, whilst keeping the didgeridoo normal sized rather
than 8 to 12 feet long. The concave mouthpiece conforms to your face
for a perfect fit, and is slightly larger than most didge players are
accustomed too, enabling better lip movement and control for advanced
says, "The Arizona Cypress used to make this was found after being cleared from land under development and aged for 2 years. The shape was carved from something much thicker. I carved down to the Ideal multidrone shape, but kept and enhanced some of the natural epicness of the original tree. I named this big white whale of a didge "Whale Bone" as a tribute to my brother who's researching blue whales off the coast of Sri Lanka. This thing probably drops low enough in tone to speak to blue whales. The concave mouthpiece conforms to your face for a perfect fit
and a comfortable, superior seal. This makes a larger mouthpiece easily
manageable to provide the maximum amount of subtle lip control that is
unattainable on flat small mouthpieces. This subtle lip control is what
makes hitting lower drone frequencies possible. This didgeridoo has been
balanced so that its concave mouth piece aligns perfectly with your
mouth in a naturally held position. This type of mouthpiece is
recommended for playing out of the front of the mouth to achieve the
Drop Octave and Multi Drone techniques (for more on this see the video
on Side vs Front on www.wetdidgeridoo.com)."
a handsome didgeridoo this is, not to mention eco-friendly (being
recycled from a dead tree limb). The bell or distal end is very clear
and open which increases volume, harmonics, and clarity of tone. Solid,
gorgeous finish. The outside is coated with two coats of epoxy that have
been buffed out and rubbed down with a satin wipe on polyurethane. The
interior is coated with a single coat of epoxy resin. Features a smooth and comfortable mouthpiece made from black walnut that's been sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). This didgeridoo is waterproof, unaffected by hot or cold weather conditions, and very easy to care for, no worries.
Soundwise: Concert Quality
Will says, "Like stated above, this thing is a whale whisperer. That means is LOW. The drop octave and multidrone notes are on the bottom of the audible spectrum but are still loud and powerful enough to play well. The backpressure is very high and because if its length, it's possible to play many trumpet notes and drone notes with ease. The fundamental drone has a beautiful quality which translates down to the drop octave as well. This didgeridoo is very well balanced in its dynamics and transitions. Well suited for a strong, intricate and versatile contemporary soloist. For those experienced didge players who are new to Multi Drone, it will still comfortably play the styles of normal didgeridoos." Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
