If you are just starting out on didge this one would be perfect! I designed this one for really strong back pressure with its narrow bore to its flared bell. The thin walls and shape of this one allows the player to learn circular breathing much easier. This one takes so little breath to get the drone going. The smaller bore also allows for really easy overtones and has awesome clear vocals. If you are an advanced player this one will be so incredible with all the capabilities it has. It can play with such speed and response and has a great presence for ambient meditative style of play. A tremendous didge ready to assist in learning for the beginning player or reaching another level for the advanced!
We all need a little bit of heart chakra healing these days. I recently played at a Reiki circle and F was by far their favorite key. I have always loved F and F# and this one falls right in the middle. It plays with such amazing speed and has tremendous ambient capabilities. The overtones come so easy with the shape and wall thickness. The taper on this allows for some amazing response and would be great to play with drums as well as well other instruments as it will really stand out. While sanding this one I really loved all the coloration in the grain. One of the reasons I love the older stalks and the turquoise inlays really add a nice touch to the overall beauty of the stalk. If you are looking for some new inspiration in a higher key this would be a great addition!!
I was so excited to start working on this one. The shape, bell, thickness of wood, and resonance are just tremendous. I love these Old Souls and this one definitely has some stories to tell. It is a rhythm machine and is so responsive to the player. It plays with ease and power and inspires so many new ideas. This would be so great to accompany other instruments with its volume and also it would be a great performance didge. I love the coloration throughout and in person you will see so many more pigments and the pics don’t do it justice . Along with this, the mouthpiece and turquoise inlays throughout add so much beauty to the stalk. With the ease of playability, power, and beauty of this stalk it is sure to inspire new rhythms and sounds!
I had one customer compare his agave in E to a racing motorcycle. It seems these higher pitched fast tapered didges are just made to be played fast and have an extra gear that a lot of didges don’t have. This would be a great instrument to accompany drums as its drone will cut right through and can be played in such a quick rhythmic style with ease. E is such an important chakra being our solar plexus where our second intuitive brain resides. I also love its vocal and overtone ability with the thinner neck and fast taper to the big bell. Also can play great in a more ambient style and can be a singer as well. This was a really old stalk that had a ton of bug holes throughout. In these bug holes there are over 30 turquoise inlays which add so much to the beautiful coloration in the wood. Such a fun didge to play especially for those who like to play in a more rhythmic style!
These giant agaves are such a challenge to make but so worth it. They play with incredible response and for the serious player these can take you to a place you may have not yet visited playing the instrument . The small amount of air necessary to play these is astounding. So much back pressure allows the player to really relax and focus on all the sounds you can create. B is one of the most soothing notes and would be great for those playing for meditation and also would be great for sound healing with the extreme resonation these have. You can feel this one shake as well as the walls of the room you are playing in. The overtones are crystal clear and especially with the thick wood on this agave have such a soothing quality to them. Vocals will blow your mind on this one as you can travel the 6 plus feet of didge creating amazing sound landscapes. This one that has so much power and can really help both the player and listener reach different worlds. Not only is it impressive in sound it is amazing to play a flower this large and the visuals alone capture the imagination of the player.
