About this instrument:
This didge has outstanding harmonics and tone. If you listen to the audio sample closely, you can hear the upper harmonics “ringing” above the drone note. This didge also accentuates vocalizations nicely. A wonderful healing heart didge. Strong back pressure and strong, resonate feel. I inlayed petrified wood and quartz crystal towards the bell end (see photos). The crystal is inlayed into the agave so that is visible on the inside. A nice sight when the light passes through just right. Beautiful Myrtle wood mouthpiece. This didge is tune to the key of F, which represents the heart chakra. The heart (fourth) chakra connects the lower and upper chakras. In other words, the heart chakra acts as a center of integration of earthly matters and higher aspirations. Far from seeing these energies as separate, the experience of the heart integrates them effortlessly and harmoniously.
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.
