About this instrument:
With a fundamental drone note tuned to C#, this didgeridoo has a tuning that’s neither too high or too low. A great tuning to learn on. Some also believe the earth rotates in the key of C# which adds an interesting connection to the sound of this didgeridoo. It has a nice tapered shape, clear and balanced overall tone and playability. A comfortable yet durable walnut, mahogany and bass wood mouthpiece. I also inlayed chrysocolla in the mid section of the didgeridoo. Chyrsocolla is first and foremost a stone of communication. Its very essence is devoted to expression, empowerment and teaching.
I harvested this agave stalk in the south west region of the U.S.. When I harvest Agave, its a very important time and experience for me. It not only gives me the opportunity to explore the desert in search of prime Didgeridoo stalks, but also allows for personal spiritual connectedness throughout the entire crafting process. I only harvest Agave that is finished with its cycle and spent. I also spread any seeds left in the pods to help with the regeneration of the plant. I carefully hollow out the didge with a bore and burn technique. I use some home made tools, chisels, rasps, drill bits and fire..
I finish all of my instruments inside and out with a high quality, zero VOC epoxy resin. This finish is non toxic when cured and has virtually no out gassing. This is the most durable, longest lasting finish to use. Its waterproof too. After the finish cures, I fine sand the exterior and hand polish the instrument using either oils and polishing compounds or a wipe on poly.
I personally tune all of the didgeridoos I make and always attempt to tune them as close to “perfect” pitch as possible. However, there are many variables that can effect the tuning even after the didge is finished, such as ambient temperature, humidity, climate and the players technique. Therefore I cannot guarantee the didgeridoo I sell will remain in its advertised tuning when its received.
