This is one beast of a didge. This is one of the thickest, heaviest, most impressive agaves I have worked on. The thick dense wood tapers to medium thickness in the unusually long bell that acts almost like a resonator. This would be a great didge to reach other levels in playing and also would be great for a beginner. I love its response and the power it plays with. Lots of volume with the size and the vocals are extremely loud and clear. Overtones are bright and easy to reach once you find them in there. It is extremely rare to find agaves like this and might have to end up keeping it if it stays on here for a bit.
At 6 ft with a 9 inch bell this is one monster didge! Agave wood is so amazing in that even at this size it probably only weighs about 4 lbs. This has SO much volume and power it is hard to describe in words. It plays with such ease and punch with amazing response to every little manipulation in sound. Playing a didge with this much size and power is quite an experience. You can feel the whole didge shaking when playing it and the sound fills a room with its balanced and beautifully bassy drone. Vocals explode out the bell and chanting with it takes you to another meditative place instantly. With its shape it is able to play with such speed with ease as well. This registered in at perfect C at 440 for those playing in bands where tuning is important. This didge will take you to another level and create so many new sonic journeys!
I built this one for speed and percussive style of playing. One great thing about fusions is that you create a piece that would be hard to replicate in nature. For the top half I found a really nice smaller agave stalk that would have been to small for a didge on its own but matched perfectly with a the bottom half which is a really nice old portion with tons of bug activity throughout. The two fit perfectly together joined by both cherry and maple pieces and create such an explosive and responsive didge. This one takes hardly any breath because of its shape and would be great for those that are performing and also looking to play in a faster more beat oriented style and overtones. As with all didges it also is so responsive to an ambient style. Been having a blast playing this one!
Calling all sound healers and those using didgeridoo for more meditative purposes. At 6.5 ft this didge packs a real punch. It registered in B at 432hz which is one of the most popular tunings for sound healers. B is the crown chakra and this one can take you to an other worldly place. Such an amazing key and if you haven’t tried one of these really deep notes you are in for a treat. At such a great length and long narrow neck this one takes so little breath and is so responsive. Easy overtones, amazing traveling vocals, and nice bass in the drone make this one a special didgeridoo. Playing in an ambient, meditative style has become more important to me now. Maybe it is reaching 40 where I just appreciate where it takes me and is so soothing to the soul. It becomes almost like a natural synth. I have my eye on this one and if its on here at the end of March it might be joining my collection. A really special didge!
I have more C#’s than any other note in my collection. I have always loved the grounding feel you get playing and listening to the key. Noticing those feeling and what rhythms come to your mind with each note is so interesting. This one is a beast at 6′ in length and that big 7″ bell. It plays with an explosive ability with lots of volume and incredible response and resonation. With these longer didges I love how you can travel sounds down it to create such movement within the drone. Vocals are loud and clear and the overtones are a cinch with its length and taper. A great note to begin on and also one for those of you advanced players that want to add another to the collection!
I love the key of F and if you have been playing for a while and haven’t tried a higher pitch didge you are in for a treat. It can open up new worlds in your playing and this one has so much energy and response. It loves to go fast with explosive abilities and vocals. It also know how to slow you down and pushes you to create amazing ambient landscapes with lots of diaphragm work. For its size this one also has a really nice bass tone to it that fits the drone beautifully. I would suggest the higher notes to those that are more comfortable playing as they take a bit more control. If you are there you should check out a higher pitch key and see where it takes you!
