I had a friend in town recently from New York who loves to hike. The hills where I get my Agaves can be extremely steep and rugged and I have seen some off in far distance that I had always wanted to check out. We ended up hiking to the very top of one of these hills I have waned to explore and  found some amazing agaves. This is the one however that stood out above the rest. I love thick, old agaves and this one is one of the densest stalks I have found. I love the way it plays and has so much depth and character to its drone. I couldn’t be happier with how it came out and you really can play explosive, fiery rhythms. Clear easy overtones and tremendous vocals. This is just the tip of the iceberg on what this one can do.  If you are a guitar player you are probably aware of the woods in the mouthpiece. I ordered this Swamp Ash specifically for this didge. A prized wood for its extreme resonance and has some beautiful grain that is accented nicely by the Mahogany. I used two different Shellacs for the french polish as I wanted to enhance the darks and lights. I used a clear on the ash and a dark shellac to bring out the the agave stalk. As you can see I love this didge and think you will too!
