This STUNNING multidrone didgeridoo is crafted from a Chinese elm tree. It has a maple wood mouthpiece and a WIDE 6" BELL end with a layered band of maple and mahogany wood. Multidrone didgeridoos open up the possibility of playing three or more distinct drone notes instead of one. This is made possible with a new mouthpiece design and an instrument shaped to emphasize a broader spectrum of playable frequencies. 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 styles.
 
Will says, "I found this eucalyptus log already dried out and dead in a field last year. This shape and design is my all around favorite for the hip hop/electronic style I like to play. Of course you can play any musical style on it you want but it is best suited for percussive, rhythmic playing. Almost every instrument I perform with in Gorangutang has a similar design to this. It's a well suited powerhouse for playing with other musicians. The tuning interval between the drone and first trumpet provide a lot of possibility for playing with melodic instruments. 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."
 
What 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 maple wood that's been sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). This didgeridoo is waterproof, less affected by hot or cold weather conditions than standard didgeridoos, and very easy to care for, no worries.
 
Soundwise: Concert Quality
 
Will says this didgeridoo is "Fast, loud, responsive and powerful with lots of drone range maneuverability. The notes on this instrument can be bent very easily because it has a tight neck with a lot of backpressure. This type of multidrone is my favorite for beat box style with bass lines added in. The high backpressure and easy trumpets make this didge a speed demon. It will respond to every small intricacy your mouth can create." Tuned at 70°F, 300 ft above sea level. Tuning will vary with different environmental temperatures, players, and playing styles. Watch the video below to see Will demo this didgeridoo for you.

About WET Didgeridoos

William Edwards Thoren is a Los Angeles based didgeridoo crafter, performer and professional photographer best known for inventing the Multidrone Didgeridoo. WET Didgeridoo is his name-sake brand of instruments.They are hand made specifically for the Multidrone Technique.

William performs with Gorangutang, Parliament Funkadelic and as a solo musician. “My crafting design has co-evolved with my playing style and I believe the only way to push the boundaries of instrument design, is to push the boundaries of what you can play. My first priority in crafting is to make something I would want for myself. Sticking true to my own personal preferences has allowed my crafting to evolve to the point where I am now making an entirely new breed of instruments.”

Early mentors of William include William Barton, Djalu Gurruwiwi, Chad Butler and Ondrej Smeykal.

 

wet didgeridoos by will thorenWilliam conceived two new groundbreaking didgeridoo techniques he calls the Drop Octave and the Multi Drone that dramatically expand the sonic range of the instrument. In 2008 He took a break from selling instruments to the public to develop a new type of didgeridoo specifically for the Drop Octave technique which allows one to play an octave below the regular drone note of a didgeridoo. During this time he focused heavily on tuning the overtones or trumpet notes to make didgeridoo more suitable for playing dynamically in western music. This lead him to discover the Multiple Drone technique which enables one to play 3-8 separate drone notes on a single bore instrument. “The Multi Drone came about as a result of an experiment to lower the first trumpet as close to the drone as possible. When this was done several more drone notes between the regular drone and the drop octave became playable” (similar to a pedal tones on a tuba). Beyond the shapes and range of his instruments William has developed a new mouthpiece design which makes these new techniques more accessible and comfortable to play.

MOB & WET Didgeridoos


In 2011 William founded Mob Didgeridoo, a crafting collective in Los Angeles that produces various forms of contemporary didgeridoos. The collective was formed as a means of accelerating the exploration of new Multidrone designs using bamboo. This new way of using bamboo for didgeridoo crafting was developed by William as a way to test new shapes before they were constructed out of wood. “I needed a way to explore these new Multidrone designs faster. After making twenty of these bamboo instruments myself I realized the possibility there would be in working as a team. Shapes that I personally would not be inclined to make would be made by others and the evolution could accelerate beyond my own mind.
The birth of the Mob Didgeridoo Collective took me away from crafting very many WET Didgeridoos for several years. My understanding of Multidrone design has gotten much deeper as a result. I only make a few Wet Didgeridoos a year now as I put most of my time into crafting with the Mob. I have a lot of pots in the fire and love collaborating with others on projects but WET Didgeridoo remains one of my most personal creative outlets" - William Thoren
