A short, highly-charged mako from Maningrida. Due to the high backpressure and the short length, this instruments needs a player with good lung-capacity. What I love about this little, lightweight stick is its electric sound and superb acoustics.
Alex Brown is a carver who makes wood sculptures and work as an artist under the Mningrida Art Centre. This is the first mako we have seen from Alex, so we hope he will create more instruments that we can promote in the future.
Mouthpiece internal diameter: 2.7-3cm
