These didgeridoos have good volume and have a nice condensed sound. Don’t be fooled by their size as many of these have as much volume as bell didgeridoos. I really like these for recording and also in performances when using a mic. They are also great for someone who travels and hikes a lot.

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.
