This is one beast of a didge! I have really enjoyed making these extremely deep keys as they are both a challenge and love how other worldly they are to play. This is a very thick old soul agave full of cracks and bug holes inlayed with turquoise. I leave the cracks to show its age and although some worry about them, don’t, as they are all sealed and have never had one open up. This drone has quite an impact with its bass tones and deep note. This has a bigger note and was a huge agave which creates these tremendous bass tones. This would be such a great didge for a more experienced player and would be great for meditation and sound healing. It also has great rhythmic capabilities despite its size and key which can be a surprise if you’ve ever played some in this deep a key. The overtones are so calming and easy to find and the vocals are such a blast. A one of a kind! Such a trip to play and so excited to see where it’s new home is!
