Didgeridoo #231


I rarely collect agaves in town but this one had such a cool shape and presence to it.  I walked past in nearly every day and finally ran into the neighbors and they agreed to save it. So sweet! I am not sure the species but it has such a nice shape and interesting coloration that almost looks like red leopard spots throughout. To accent these I wanted to add purpleheart and bubinga which are a close match in color. The sweet neighbor kept it standing for two years and then finally got the call it was ready to come down. This seems to be a very sensitive didge with a punch as well. There is a different wisdom in it, perhaps partly being a city didge, and has a really nice solid deep drone. Extremely responsive to everything, It’s a listener for sure. The overtones really easy with its shape and on this less is more as well. This seems to happen with most of the deeper notes. There is also a bit of a different contour instead of a mostly perfect circe in the actual wood which is hard to see in the pics but has a nice look to it. This would be great as a teacher for every didge player. Brings me to an instant peaceful place!
