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.
Some didges are just hard to put into words as there is just a feeling you have when you play it that just resonates with you. This one is so balanced and seems to do everything well. It has nice volume with the beautiful drone it contains. Great explosive ability, vocals, overtones, and responsiveness. This is one of my favorites of the recently completed didges. I picked it up and played it so many times while working on it as I just love it. This would be great to start on and grow with or for the serious player that wants to add a great D to their collection.
Here is another one of my lovely deep note didgeridoos. Very rare to find didges in A# this one is so easy to play and takes very little breath. At close to six feet in length this allows the player to really travel sounds up and down the didge and the thinner walls on this one adds very crisp vocals with lots of bass present. When there is the opportunity I love to leave parts of the old flower nubs on these bigger stalks. It really adds a unique appearance to the didge. This one is so responsive and highly recommended if you don’t have an A# yet. this is your chance to explore a very powerful note.
This is a gnarly stalk full of stories. At least 3 years after blooming this stalk was still surviving the harsh desert climate. Most agaves wouldn’t make it this far and defines an old soul. So many bug holes and cracks in this very dense thick wood. I have left the cracks visible in my old soul style and many of the bug holes I have inlaid with turquoise throughout. A ton of inlays in this one. The deep cracks in this one are completely sealed so don’t worry as they just add character to the stalk. It plays with great power and my friend who recently visited just loved this didge. Easy toots, nice vocals, great response are all characters of this stalk. If you like an instrument that could tell stories this is the one.
