About this instrument:
This didge is made from Red Alder. I scavenged the wood from our family farm after a wind storm. I carved and tuned this didgeridoo so that maximum resonance could be achieved in the key of F which relates to the heart chakra. Walnut, wenge and bass wood mouthpiece. Agave carbon bell cap for added strength. This didge has great back pressure and a wonderful tone. Some of the upper harmonics compliment the drone and add a nice “ring” to overall sound . I also inlayed chrysocolla throughout the instrument where I felt it “fit”. Chyrsocolla is a stone of communication. Its essence is devoted to expression, empowerment and teaching..
All of the hardwood didjeridus I make is made from scavenged wood or drift wood. Any exotic wood I use either scavenged remnants from other wood workers or scraps I purchase and mill myself. All of the wood I collect is age cured until it is ready to work.
I use the split and hollow technique on most of the hardwood didjeridu’s I craft. The short description of this technique: shaping the cured log with a variety of hand and power tools, carefully splitting the log with an industrial band saw and carving each half to specific bore dimensions and geometry using carving wheels, sanding drums, blood, sweat and the occasional tear:) Many hours goes into this process. Quality craftsmanship and making the best sounding/playing instrument as possible is always my goal!
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.
