I am so excited about this didgeridoo. This one stood out from the beginning in my summer line. A huge agave that I found already fallen. This Old Soul I estimate at three years surviving out in the desert before I found it. Most other agaves would not have made it through these extreme conditions. It has nice dense thicker wood with tons of cracks that are all filled from the inside but give it such a weathered look on the outside. The sun really bleached the wood over the years so I thought spalted sycamore and walnut would compliment it well. At over 6 feet in length and its big bore this agave has some great volume and the drone is so crisp and mesmerizing with an almost singing bowl overtone in the background. A# is such an incredible note and harder to find out there. If you like to play in a meditative style this one is definitely for you. Would be amazing for sound healers. With its open bore and responsiveness you can play some really fast explosive rhythms with ease and it has so much pop. Really nice clear and loud overtones. Such nice back pressure for easy circular breathing. This is one of my favorites I have made over all these years that will inspire new sounds and rhythms. Excited to see who the lucky person is that ends up with it!
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!
LOVE this didgeridoo! I have really been enjoying these extremely deep notes and they are very hard to find as they take a lot more effort and time because of their length. This one is over 6 feet in length and you can feel an instant calm as the drone begins. Not only is this great for meditative playing but can play with great rhythmic ability. Perfect backpressure and takes hardly any air. Nice dense wood with great vocals and so responsive to every little alteration. Not only is it a great player but the mouthpiece on this one is really eye catching. Found some beautiful Beli wood to pair with Walnut and Mahogany. So many lines and great to look down the pipe as you play. This one definitely won’t disappoint!
This one is a powerhouse. A 9″ bell is pretty hard to come by and still be able to have a didge form. This one has an enormous bore size as you can reach your whole arm up to your shoulder and flap your hand around in it. This bore creates some insane bass tones that completely shake my old airstream studio. If you like vocals this is like a megaphone projecting them far out in space. The drone has such a crisp tone and the bass doesn’t over shadow it. Volume wise this is one of the loudest didges I have heard. Such responsiveness and the ability to play with incredible speed and power as well as it really feels comfortable in a slower ambient rhythms as well. Despite its large size it takes so little breath and plays with ease. In addition to all of its amazing sound capabilities it is also just a beautiful stalk. Great dense wood, nice coloration, and lots of turquoise inlays throughout. This would be a great performance didge and will surely draw a crowd. You won’t see many agaves out there like this!
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.
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.
This is one tough stalk. It actually took me two separate occasions to this location to return home with it to remove all the stubborn tough leaves. Was an exhausting yet rewarding experience. This toughness translates well into the character of this didge. I love the deep mesmerizing drone and the long neck and mouthpiece allow for such easy overtones that mix beautifully with the C note. Amazing vocal abilities that love to travel throughout the length of this stalk. As you can imagine with the neck shape it has great backpressure and would make learning circular breathing that much easier. Advanced players will be in awe of all the sounds and abilities hidden deep in this stalk. An incredibly beautiful and powerful Old Soul!
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.
One of my all time favorites! I remember finding this stalk after a rugged mountain hike and was instantly blown away. Not many stalks do you find with a huge nine inch bell and a perfect taper. It is almost as if an ideal 6″ bell stalk was put under an enlarger. The volume on this one is insane. the first time I played it in the airstream all the walls instantly shook. The insane bass tones mixed with its accent abilites make this one so special. Incredible overtones and vocals. Perfect backpressure and so little breath required for this monster didge. Incredibly rhythmic and excels at ambient performance. With its great length at over 6 foot you can travel sounds for awesome effects. Can’t say enough about this didge and the most experienced player’s didges could be collecting dust and would be incredible for live performance and recording. If this would be your first didge or as a beginner player it would sure help in your exploration and a hell of a didge to learn on. I have this one the site for now but come mid April and it is still here it is going to my collection.
This one is dedicated to those players that really like to go fast! This one with thin walls and quick taper and good sized bell can be extremely explosive. So many gears in this one for those who also like to play a slower more ambient style. One can shift from slow to warp speed in no time. Light as a feather these thin walls contain such responsive vocal ability and and almost overtone present in the drone. F is a great energetic higher note and also the note of the heart chakra which is an area we could all use a little love.
