About this instrument:
One of my favorite playing didges in my current collection. This didge just feels “right” when I play it. Strong backpressure with a clear and precise sound. A resonant sound that reverberates the entire instrument when played, ideal for vibrational sound therapy and healing. I really like the size and shape too, not to big or small and very light weight. Tuned to C# which is attributed to the root chakra (Muladhara), a very grounding note.The energy of this note allows us to harness courage, resourcefulness and the will to live during trying times. It connects us with spiritual energies of our ancestors, their challenges and their triumphs. I also inlayed some chrysocolla near the mouthpiece. Chyrsocolla is 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.
