This didgeridoo is SUPER LOUD and pumps out fast riddims with remarakble ease! That said, I find that this particular didge, whilst being high in pitch, also delivers a warm and hypnotic drone when played slowly. This is rare, and while most didge players buy high pitched instruments to play fast, others are looking out for high keys to play slowly, especially for use in vibrational therapy, sound healing and yoga studio work. So if you've been waiting for high pitch that can rip you want it to but also beam like a Tesla coil when slowed down, then here's your new axe.
This didgeridoo tapers from a natural wood mouthpiece down to a BIG 5.5" bell at the bottom end. James is serious about his didges, and whilst he may be fairly new on the scene as a young crafter, he's making waves both sonic and aesthetic. This CONCERT QUALITY didgeridoo features a very comfortable mouthpiece made from beautiful cocobolo, maple and padauk woods. You will not need any beeswax to create a seal for your lips (see photo at left).
Crafted from a sumac tree and left completely unpainted, the natural lustre in the wood grain offers many hues and shifting "fire". All of the checks in the wood are sealed up tight. Double resin coated inside and out for enhanced sound quality, luster and durability. A beautiful satin polyurethane finish tones down the glossiness of the resin and further protects the wood from the elements. Features a smooth and comfortable natural mouthpiece sanitized with Didgeri-Clean (tea tree and lavender oil). No beeswax needed. This didgeridoo is waterproof, less affected by hot or cold weather conditions than non resin-coated didges, and very easy to care for, no worries.

Soundwise: Concert Quality

Performance grade sound and playability with a RICH SONIC FULLNESS and LOUD, POWERFUL volume. It has perfectly balanced acoustics with a sweetly hot harmonic luminosity. Play it fast or slow, no dramas. Sensitive in the midrange and high frequencies giving wings to your tongued rhythms and vocal wails. Awesome drum circle didge! The high pitch wails above the bass of the drums better than a low pitched didgeridoo. You will absolutely marvel at the diversity, range and power of this awesome player. Super clean bell. Four easy horn toots. Optimal strong backpressure which makes the circular breathing technique easier. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
