About this didge:
This didge is best described as having a warm, resonate and full sound. The drone has a bass dominate feel but still maintains clarity in the higher frequencies range, this helps articulate vocals and rhythms nicely. Super light weight and an ideal overall shape. The mouthpiece is made from paduk, wenge and zebra, beautiful but very functional and durable . I also inlayed some chrysocolla in the lower section of this didge for a nice artistic accent. The chrysocolla is a gift from a dear friend who harvested the mineral in the south west.
Listen to a sound sample of this instrument:
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.
I personally tune all of the didjeridus 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 didjeridu I sell will remain in its advertised tuning when its received.
