About this instrument:
This didge has a deep, resonate sound. Its ideal for healing and meditative style playing. Although it can be played rhythmically as well (listen to the full audio sample for an example). It has medium/strong back pressure and has a rich, bass driven sound. Its resonance is so present that the listener will feel it as much as the player. Beautiful craftsmanship and intention into every detail. The mouthpiece is made from black locust, wenge and bass wood. The black locust wood was harvested from my uncles farm. Its tuned to the key of C which relates to the root chakra which supports us in growing and feeling safe into exploring all the aspects of life.The root chakra is where we ground ourselves into the earth and anchor our energy with strength and security.
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.
