Didgeridoo #285


As you can see from the photos there is a ton of turquoise inlaid throughout this beautiful Old Soul. My friend described it as a galaxy of turquoise:) I love the challenge and how time consuming these older stalks are to make. I am sure most agave makers would look at it and see too much work but I love the process of turning all the bug holes into inlays and see the old wood transform with all its cracks and weathered wood end up being a polished instrument. There are over 70 inlays in this one! It must have been a very popular hub for bugs as I haven’t seen that much activity in many stalks. I love working stone into the wood and reminds me of the short time I did silversmithing. C# is such an amazing key and my first key I really felt resonated with me when I first started playing. This one has such a beautiful balanced drone with awesome vocals and overtones. It has such a calming presence when played and such nice back pressure and and takes hardly any breath and responsive to any slight manipulation. I just recorded a new sample for this one as I hadn’t played it in a while. It is even more special than I initially realized and really think this would be great for someone using didge for sound therapy for ones self or others. One aspect I really like about its drone is that you can reach overtones within the drone with ease and also harmonizing vocals sound so cool. This would be a great didge for anyone and it really sings when you play it!
