Listen to an audio sample of this instrument:
A beautiful, compact agave didjeridu. This didge sounds great too. It has a warm resonate feel when playing, and is easy to play due to its strong back pressure. It has a strong harmonic presence with overtones gently ringing above the fundamental drone. I inlayed four quartz crystals and our dear friend Michelle highlighted them with some painting. The crystals are inlayed completely through the wall of the instrument. I feel this allows the crystals to resonate with the body of the instrument when played, giving it a unique overall resonance to the instrument. The crystals bring a holistic and healing feel to it too.
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 Didjeridu 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.
