Bambararr Marawili yiḏaki F#/F (HLY-333) SOLD

$550

Out of stock

A high-pitched yiḏaki with confined internal chamber, and ‘murky’ sound (that I always appreciate). Due to its high backpressure I found slower-rhythms more suitable to play on this stick, and once you spend some time with this excellent instrument, you can find many beautiful harmonics in its sound. I recommend it for traditional-followers only.

Key: F#
Length: 138cm
Mouthpiece internal diameter: 2.5-3cm
