About this instrument:
A beautiful, compact and full sounding didge. This didge has a relatively “open” internal bore diameter. This gives the didge a great harmonic range and allows for clear vocalizations and higher frequency effects. Some of the upper harmonics are very audible even when playing a basic drone. The bass frequencies are very present as well. Overall it has a balanced feel to it when playing. Strong back pressure and great for beginner to advanced level playing. I inlayed three quartz crystals in the lower section of the didge which can be seen on the inside too. In the right light, the quartz illuminates the inside of the instrument adding another level beauty. This didge is tuned to F and resonates with the heart chakra. The three inlayed crystals pay homage to the three chakras that come before the heart, helping align the progression upwards. I also inlayed chrysocolla near the mouthpiece. Chryscolla is a mineral devoted to expression and empowerment..
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.
