Old Soul Didgeridoos

These didgeridoos are the oldest strongest agaves that have survived many years in the desert through extreme conditions. My personal collection is comprised mainly of these didges. They have great character with  many small cracks and bug holes which are filled from the inside but retain their character on the outside.

Didgeridoo #134

didge#126a

  • Key: A#
  • Length: 77″
  • Bell: 7.25″
  • Mouthpiece: Walnut, Satinwood, African Mahogany
  • Backpressure: Strong
  • Wall Thickness: Thin

As you can see from the dimensions this is a monster didgeridoo! This didge has so many amazing qualities. First off , the note of  deep A#,  which is hard to come by. It’s big bore and thin walls give it great bass tones and clear loud vocals. You can really feel this didge shake when you play it. For such a deep note it seems to also want to play fast rhythms interspersed with slow ambient soundscapes. The mouthpiece has lots of great tone woods that give it  added beauty as well as the inlaid turquoise throughout. For those of you looking for a deep, meditative, rhythmically inclined didgeridoo this would be a great addition to your collection.

Didgeridoo #133

didge#133a

  • Key: C
  • Length: 58″
  • Bell: 3.25″
  • Mouthpiece: Walnut
  • Backpressure: Very Strong
  • Wall thickness: Medium

A friend recently played this one and said ” All those sounds came out of this!” Although this one isn’t as big and flashy as some of the others its has some great depth to it. This would be an awesome starter didgeridoo or one for traveling and hiking around as the summer months are approaching! Unusual for an agave this size to be a C and all the better as this deep grounding  note can travel along with you with ease. Its mesmerizing bassy drone, vocal ability , strong backpressure,  and ease of play , and turquoise inlays throughout make this one quite a catch.

Didgeridoo #132

didge#132a

  • Key: D#
  • Length: 61″
  • Bell: 7.5″
  • Mouthpiece: Wenge, Satinwood, Beli, Walnut
  • Backpressure: Strong
  • Wall thickness: Thick to thin at bell

When I first played this one it felt electrified. With the really dense thick wood that tapers to a thinner bell it  acts almost as a built in amplifier.  It is always a treat to find these dense agaves that taper this way.  This one can play explosive and loud rhythms and seems to want to race right out of the gate. Its is sprinter that also needs to rest and play some laid back soundscapes too but then wants to race pretty quickly there after. Wobblers out there will love this one. The wood has so much variation and the mouthpiece adds a nice touch to this beautiful piece.  A really fascinating didge that I haven’t explored enough and whoever it goes to will find some amazing capabilities that I haven’t touched on yet.

Didgeridoo #130

  • Key: C#
  • Length: 62″
  • Bell: 4.5″
  • Mouthpiece: Wenge, Satinwood
  • Backpressure: Strong
  • Wall thickness: Thick to medium

This has  dense thick tone wood and a great well balanced drone. I really love the way it plays and although haven’t gotten to play it enough to see it really warm up , what I do know  is that is has a ton of  power and you can feel it immediately. I love these old thick stalks and they have so much variation in wood grain as well as a complexity to their drone and so many capabilities. Easy overtones with the thicker wood and vocals that really project. You can feel the wisdom in these old souls and the stories they  contain with all the years surviving in the desert.  I know this will bring much joy to your didge playing!

Didgeridoo #129

didge#129a

  • Key: D#
  • Length: 60″
  • Bell: 7″
  • Mouthpiece: Walnut, African Mahogany
  • Backpressure: Strong
  • Wall Thickness: Very Thin

You can’t tell from the photos but this one has an incredible bend  that makes this such a unique and visually stunning didgeridoo. The walls on this one are extremely thin.  This in conjunction with the big bell makes for some really loud and clear vocals. The overtones  come with ease and  the taper makes for great backpressure and ease of play.  Great rhythmic abilities with a nice full  ambient drone..  A beautiful piece that is sure to inspire!

Didgeridoo #125

didge125a

  • Key: D#
  • Length: 59″
  • Bell: 6.75″
  • Mouthpiece: Padauk
  • Wall Thickness: Medium
  • Backpressure: Strong

One of the most unique stalks that I have found over the 15 years of making didges. That’s saying a lot seeing that I have worked on close to 500 over that time period. I found this stalk growing between two rocks which caused the unique bulb and angle the stalk grew. Not only does it have a nice big bell but it also has really great dense wood that tapers to a very small opening with extremely easy overtones and hardly any breath to get droning. Lots of percussive capabilities and can play with extreme pace. For those of you who enjoy wobbling this should fit you perfectly. Another really unique feature is the fact that this didge can stand all by itself. The unique shape has it balance perfectly on its bell of a foot. Quite a piece of art with lots of turquoise inlaid throughout to add to this special piece.

Didgeridoo #123

didge#123a

  • Key: B
  • Length: 62″
  • Bell: 3.75″
  • Mouthpiece: Padauk, Walnut- 1.35″
  • Wall thickness: Thick
  • Backpressure: Strong

I found this stalk and instantly new I wanted to make a big bore deep didgeridoo. It is quite a thick old stalk with really dense wood. One thing I love about Old Souls is all the character in the wood. This one has some nice deeper browns and I filled some of the cracks with some red ochre pigment to add some flash to it. I was really feeling red on this stalk I guess as I finished it off with Walnut and Padauk which is one of my favorite combinations of woods. I really opened up the mouthpiece on this one so those that prefer smaller mouthpieces might want to look at others on the site. There was so much pressure that I had to open it up to allow for different styles of playing. I have always preferred bigger mouthpieces for my style and this one is so great to play on. For a B this is shorter than average because of its big bore and thicker wood. the richness is evident right aways and so responsive. B has always been one of my favorite notes and if you don’t have one yet in your collection you should try one out.
