About this instrument:
A beautiful didge in both sound and aesthetics. This didge has an open, medium sized internal bore diameter that accentuates a deep, clear tone. Vocalizations also pronounce clearly and powerfully with this didge and there’s a great balance between the lower and higher frequencies. A great didge for beginner or advance players. Its tuned to C# which is related to the root chakra and helps establish connections with your physical body, your environment and with the Earth. The C# frequency can also help to harness courage, resourcefulness and the will to rise above trying times. I inlayed a quartz crystal 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 of beauty and uniqueness..
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.
