About this instrument:
A powerful, percussive player, yet with the warmth and bass that agave presents so well. It has strong back pressure making it very easy to play. The first trumpet is an octave above the drone making it very accessible and effortless to transition into from the drone. The drone is tune to E which resonates with the solar plexus chakra, which is characterized by the expression of will, personal power, and mental strength..
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.
