About this instrument:
This didge is a beauty. The natural colors and grain patterns really stand out upon first glance, but the sound is what really shines and brings this didge to life. Strong backpressure and balanced overall playing characteristics make this didge ideal for any playing level. The paduk, zebra and bass wood mouthpiece are durable, strong and a perfect artistic compliment to the colors and patterns of the Agave. Flawless finish and the chrysocolla inlay adds a nice final touch.
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.
