Tired of not being heard in a jam session? Drummers drowning you out again? This one is a percussive machine and has so much volume! The sound sample really doesn’t do this one justice as it is hard to capture its capabilities. It is one of the quickest didges you will play and can achieve some amazing speeds with ease. The bell is so unique and adds such an interesting sound effect to the drone. It almost acts like an amplifier and the sounds get moved around in it in such a cool way. The overtones are so easy to transition to and creates so many rhythmic possibilities. As you can see from its incredible taper this one just wants you to speed up and is such an energizing didge. A perfect didge for those that like to beat box and play in a more percussive style. What a blast to play!

On a recent camping trip I was collecting wood for fire when I found some beautiful alligator juniper that I wanted to turn into a mouthpiece for one of the stalks I had found. It seemed to fit this stalk just right and love the contrast it has to the agave coloration. I just love C# and has been one of my favorite keys since I began. It is such a grounding earthy note and always a great one to play and relax to. This one plays so easily and has such a rich and calming drone. It also has a lot of spunk and really excels not only in meditative style of play but has tremendous rhythmic and percussive abilities. The overtones are so easy to reach and add to rhythms. This also has such amazing vocals and back pressure. This would be great for someone who has never picked up a didge as this one will be a great teacher and also teach a thing or two and inspire new rhythms for the most advanced. A gem especially at this price!!

This is like the Swiss army knife of didges:) It is incredible how many capabilities this one has. It is one of the easiest didges you will ever play for one. This has the perfect amount of back pressure and takes so little breath to to play with tremendous power and volume. Such incredibly easy toots that are so easy to transition back and forth from drone to overtone. It has such clear and poppy vocals and the drone has such a beautiful subtle bass tone. I have already played this one a bunch and will make you a rhythm machine or a calm and ambient player as well as it excels in this area as well. This would be perfect for every level player in any style. on top of it I think this is one of the the coolest stalks with the very old wood that has whites and dark cracks. It has a ton of turquoise inlaid that accents this light wood so beautifully and this didge feels like an ancient magic stick. I can’t wait to see where it ends up and a little jealous too!

I just love how grounding this didge is. These big open bore agaves have such soothing bass tones and even with this open bore they have a great back pressure and take very little breath. This one just feels so good to play and feel so relaxed and present while playing it. This is another really nice thick old soul and would be great for sound healers with its size or for traveling and hiking during these nicer weather months. The overtones are really easy as well and vocals are incredible. I have many big bore agaves in my collection as they are so great to play in an ambient style but you can also play in any style you wish as they can go really fast and play percussively as well.

This is one incredible didge! I just love finding these really thick old soul agaves. An ancient stalk that took over a month to work on. This one has so much power but plays with so little effort. This is such a mesmerizing didge to play and already did a recording with it for a friend who is having trouble sleeping at the moment. The calming effect is immediate and would so great for someone using didge for sound healing or meditation and relaxation during these stressful times. It has so many strengths and just such a balanced didge. The drone has a perfect amount of bass to it and the vocals are so strong over the deep drone and the overtones so easy to transition to and sustain. This takes so little breath and makes circular breathing a cinch. These older agaves have such beautiful grain as many turn darker and have more pigments which accent the turquoise inlays so well. In addition just love all the grain in the mouthpiece and adds such a nice accent to the stalk. An amazing didge that I have had so much fun playing over the past month while working on it and can’t wait for it to find a great new home!

This is such a unique and incredible didge! You can’t tell from the photos very well how amazing the curve that it has is. You it is almost snake like when you look down the mouthpiece to the impressive bell. This one had a ton of bug activity as you can tell from the big turquoise inlays. I just love how the turquoise accents the varied agave grain and adds so much character to a stalk already brimming with it. This plays with so little effort and is so explosive. It loves to play fast and has a ton of percussion abilities but also really excels at ambient soothing soundscapes. This one has amazing overtones that are so easy to transition to and are crystal clear and take so little breath to sustain. This would be incredible for any style and any situation and if I didn’t already have two E’s I would be thinking of keeping it. Can’t wait to see who the lucky person is to get this one!

Upon approaching this agave I new I had a duty to have it live on as a didgeridoo. This one never got to fully shoot up its flower as some natural force decided to twist and break the stalk before ever being able to spread its seeds, after a lifetime of living for that sole purpose. It is hard to know how many years it took this agave to become the size it did. As you can see this has such amazing pigments throughout and you can see the evidence of the break with the twists in the wood grain. This one also attracted a ton of bug activity and there are so many turquoise inlays throughout. It takes so little breath and is incredibly responsive. Strong overtones and vocal ability and such a peaceful drone. I felt a special connection thinking of its path and helping it live on in a different way and can’t wait to see where it ends up!

This didge is explosive! When I worked at Gibson Guitar my favorite model was the smaller Robert Johnson style. I also just love these smaller agaves and this one has so much going for it. It plays with such power with a ton of volume. Such a balanced drone that is effortless to play requiring so little breath. The response is incredible and plays amazingly at any speed you want from slow and ambient soundscapes to fast percussive style rhythms. The vocals are incredible and overtones are so clear and easy to transition quickly from the drone and back. Perfect for every level player and any style. A beautiful player that also has such unique wood with some amazing contrast in its pigments. Such a lovely didge!

This one may look simple and un assuming but it packs a serious punch. It is incredible how resonant agaves are and just ring when you knock on them. This one would be the ultimate beginner didge but so fun for the most advanced as well.  I considered keeping this one as a travel didge which tells you how highly I think of it. Despite its size it has great volume and takes hardly any air with its back pressure to get its sweet drone going. Amazing overtone and percussive capabilities and being in the key of C such a grounding soothing drone. This would be great for any level player and any style of play.  Also would be perfect for sound healing as it is light as a feather and easy to move around with while holding. I just love this didge and can’t wait to see where it lands!

I just love these shorter, straight, thick Old Soul didges. This one plays with such ease and and power despite its smaller size. Such a solid drone, great vocals, and overtones. Would be great for any level player and also such a nice size for traveling and outdoor adventures.  Hard to tell from the pics but this one has a ton of holes where birds feasted on the insects living inside. I inlaid turquoise in some and left others open to have a more textured weathered look to it. Such a strong player that can play with tremendous pace and so strong in ambient meditative style as well.
