Introducing the birth of the Bamboo Multi Drone didgeridoo! "What really excites me", says Mob-man Will, "is these instruments enable me to craft solid multi drone instruments that are more affordable. After months of brainstorming it took some time to find a material that could achieve the specific shape necessary for this type of instrument and still maintain a natural and powerful sound. The idea of assembling multiple diameters of high quality bamboo struck me like lightning as the perfect option. I dropped all wood projects at the time and dove head-first into making these meet my quality standards. The new material and construction techniques make for an amazingly well balanced instrument that is excellent for playing complex modern styles. The thicker bamboo used for the middle and bell section is amazingly hard and up to 2 cm thick.
These new creations feature the same hand carved mouthpieces that I craft on my wood instruments. For me a good mouthpiece is the most important part of a didgeridoo. Give me a good mouthpiece on a milk carton and I’ll still be able to make it sound funky! The point is, when treated like wood in regards to shape, design and selection of the right bamboo, this stuff is incredible! As a player who likes to play many notes - and play them fast - the density of the bamboo offers a very solid clear projection of whatever power I throw into it. Each one is an all around dream for learning the multi drone technique and each one ripples with energy as you play it. Prepare to be amazed by the transformation of a material widely considered to be of very limited use for didgeridoos. Let the limitless EXPLODE!!!
Whether you're just starting out or you are a master seeking the expanded range of the multi drone, this instrument will be an accelerating amplifier to your sonic expression. 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 it’s 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 technique.
This is a handsome didgeridoo with a solid, gorgeous finish. Double resin coated inside and out for enhanced sound quality, luster and durability. Features a smooth and comfortable mouthpiece 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.
About MOB Didgeridoo
“I believe they are some of the best didges in the world for contemporary playing. I’ve been keeping many for my own personal recording and performing, even replacing favored wood didges I have played for years. We are constantly exploring new materials and designs. Together we can test as a group, and explore didge crafting and ways that really push boundaries. Even though multidrone is a very new concept and we have had to create the demand for it, we have gotten enough support to make it all work and continue to grow. We are hugely grateful for the support the didgeridoo community has given us to make this dream a reality.” - William Thoren
