Invented by Charlie McMahon in 1981, this amazing didgeridoo came from his desire to expand the potential for didgeridoo in music. Different materials were tried. Metals were found to be unsuitable as they corrode from breath moisture and sound cold. Wood pipes tended to jam as wood absorbs moisture and the inner pipe expands more than the outer one. Polyresin had none of these problems, and it makes the instrument light in weight for easy transport.

The Original 10-Tone Sliding Didgeridoo Proudly made in Australia. The most versatile didgeridoo you'll ever own!
IN STOCK and READY TO SHIP with a FREE CARRY BAG!
SMOOTH SLIDE ACTION
Custom made extrusion dies ensure a minimum clearance between the two pipes, so the Didjeribone slides effortlessly between the ten keys, but does not allow air to escape when fully extended.
PERMANENT & CLEAR KEY MARKS
The highest being G when closed, then there are seven keys etched into the yellow inner pipe. Running from F# down to Bb. What a range!
SOFT, PERMANENT MOUTHPIECE
Makes for easy contact with the lips and as the circumference is the optimum size it is easy to play, and does not require the wax often used with eucalyptus didgeridoos.
FLARED BELL END Gives the Didjeribone a brighter and louder sound than linear shaped didgeridoos. LIGHT WEIGHT & DURABLE
Weighing 1 pound (less than 0.5 kilograms) the Didjeribone uses a minimum of materials so it can be played in a variety of positions, and is unlikely to break or cause damage if it is dropped.
