A# is one of the most popular keys especially with those that like to use the didgeridoo for meditation and sound healing. These big agaves are so responsive and easy to play and require such a little amount of breath it’s crazy. While recording this one I realized the tremendous bass that is so soothing to listen to. It practically plays itself and love the vocal and overtone capabilities it has in addition to its calming deep drone. For such a deep note it likes to also play some fast rhythms in addition to ambient style of play. This can be so unique to hear such a deep instrument play at such speeds and really mesmerizing to player and listener. Not only is this a great player the stalk has such beautiful wood grain with evidence of the leaves that were once attached to the stalk. This one has so much power and beauty and will be a great addition to the serious didge players collection!
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.
