Troubadour Series Travel Didjeridu: An original modular instrument design with a tunable slide mouthpiece. The ideal didge for traveling musicians, beginning prodigies or compact situations. This instrument is basically the culmination of every thing I desire in a didjeridu, its also my favorite to make! It features functional designs that have taken me many years of experimentation to create and be satisfied with.

Joint: My lace joint is the most important design feature of this instrument and allows it to be assembled easily. Besides its functionality, its also an aesthetically pleasing design. The “Lace joint” is technically what I call a compression slip joint and relies on o-rings and the laced cord to compress and seal the joint. This is an advantage over a threaded, screw together joint because it creates less stress on the joint by eliminating any need to twist and torque the instrument.

Tuning Slide: My tuning slide design allows for multiple drone notes, (Four typically, but more can be achieved depending on design and tuning requests). The tuning slide is made from aluminum and has my signature slide lock that allows you to easily slide and lock it into position. Being able to tune your didge on the fly is very valuable, especially in performance or when playing along with other instruments. A tuning slide also eliminates the need to travel with multiple Didjeridus. I use a variety of wood types with this design and will layer and finish the woods to compliment the overall look and feel of the instrument. I also offer custom tuning.

Here’s a sound sample of a troubadour with a tuning slide range of C, B, Bb, A:

Mouthpiece size and options: My standard mouthpiece size is 30mm I.D. (1 3/16), with about a 44mm O.D.. I feel this is the most versatile size mouthpiece for most playing styles and mouth sizes. But I also can accompany personal requests and custom sizes if needed.

Wood Types. I typically use locally harvested hardwood, but I offer Agave as an option as well. I prefer to work with Alder because of its abundance in our area, sound quality, grain, color and I like its carving characteristics. But I usually have a variety of wood types to choose from, please contact me if you’d like to find out what I have available. Agave will typically save weight compared to the hardwood (about 3lbs vs. about 5lbs), and is known to have have a warm, bass driven sound. Hardwood typically has more attack (responsiveness) than agave. But it really depends on how I shape and tune them.

A bell cap not only adds aesthetic beauty, but rigidity and strength as well..

A bell rest option is also available to protect the end of your didge and keep it stable while playing:

Custom hard case: I include a soft case with every troubadour series purchase, but I also offer custom hard cases if you want to take your instruments protection (and presentation) to the next level. I personally make each one by hand to custom fit the instrument.

I also include a telescoping slide swab to help keep your tuning slide clean:

Playability: I tune each instrument with versatility in mind. I prefer a didgeridoo to have the capability of playing many different techniques, styles and playing levels. Backpressure, tonal clarity, balanced low to high frequencies, accessible trumpet notes and overall playable range are all important characteristics to me and I do my best to achieve this with every instrument I craft.
