I was hesitant to order this didgeridoo as my ""first"" wooden piece. I bought a small plastic starter didge for a few bucks before and now I wanted something nicer. I wasn't sure how much time I could spend didging with my busy schedule or if Id even stick with it.
The price along with the many great reviews were really attractive. I called LaOutback to ask some questions and Barry was super cool and helpful.
It looks AWESOME in person and easy to work on your circular breathing. Also, the craftsmanship is excellent. It feels high quality and solidly made. I brought it to a friend who's been playing for years and makes didgeridoos now. He was impressed and loved the walnut mouthpiece. He ripped into it and it sounded amazing.
If you're on the fence about this I promise you wont be disappointed. Both new and old players can appreciate this Didge.
Couldn't be happier with my decision to buy this. I will most likely be buying again from LA Outback in the future.

The package arrived promptly and in great condition with a hand signed thank you from the owner of the company. The artistry in the piece is outstanding and it produces a low, clear drone. My eight year old picked it up as soon as it arrived and was able to play different rythms on it immediately.

This is my first didgeridoo and my first attempt at any wind instrument. The didgeridoo has incredible craftsmanship and was very easy to play. shipping was quick as it traveled across the entire United States. I will definitely be doing business with LAoutback in the future.

This is the best bang for your buck. This extremely high quality bamboo is perfect. Before I only played cheap knockoffs and couldn't get them to play right.... The guys at LA Outback set me up with the best didge very easy to play as they said. I love it and take it everywhere. ill be back to get a new one soon.

This was second didge, my first was a cheap fiberglass creation. I purchased this piece to learn circular breathing. The backpressure is great, I caught on the first couple of days I had it. The quality of the didge really makes a huge difference, especially the mouthpiece.

I am a beginner, and tried the Black Bamboo didgeridoo. It was beautiful, well packed and sounded awesome, but I decided to return it for an upgrade to something upstream of it. I found the back pressure to be substantially below what I was used to is my cheap PVC ones, but the tone was much better. I just didn't want to make it any harder to learn than I had to, so I am going with something else. However, once I learn to play better I may buy one of these then. The depth of tone was way better than anything else I have at the moment.

I am very pleased with my new bamboo didge. Barry and all involved with my order were very helpful . I tend to ask many questions before I purchase an instrument without seeing an trying it first. Barry was very patient and the didge is beautiful. Thank you
