About this instrument:
A deep, resonant sound. this didge has a medium/large bore diameter that gives it a resonant, bass driven sound. A great didge for sound healing and sound scape style playing. Excellent vocal amplification and clear, articulate sound qualities. Strong back pressure. I inlayed quartz crystal towards the end of the didge and there’s some chrysocolla inlayed for character and accent as well. This didge is tuned to the key of C which relates to the root chakra. The root chakra is the first chakra. Its energy is based on the earth element. It’s associated with the feeling of safety and grounding.
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.
