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 wood used to make this was a eucalyptus log that cured for
over 5 years giving the exposed heartwood on the neck a beautiful red
grain. 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: Performance Quality
sound and playability. Will says, "This is a great songwriting and recording instrument. It has very smooth and dynamic transitions between its many notes which make it easy to get super soft and build into loud strong rhythms. The tuning of this instrument is perfect for those looking to work with other western instruments as the first trumpet sits very close to a perfect interval from the drone. The balance of volume throughout its tonal range is perfect for recording complex contemporary styles. With a relatively small bell opening its volume does not make it a good busking stick but makes it a strong contender when played through a microphone. The harmonics are very clear with the overall sound rooted in a warm tone that is characteristic of eucalyptus. The Multi Drone note is very controllable and clear which opens up the possibilities of creating bass-line type grooves." Read our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
