Bob Burruwal mago (HLM-36) SOLD

$900

Out of stock

This mago is a great opportunity for collectors who wish to have an original Bob Burruwal mago in their collection, since Old Man is not making many instruments anymore. It is a lightweight and tiny stick, with natural curved shape. The internal aperture is confined, and the medium backpressure is well balanced; the air flows through easy and effortless. The sound is rich in overtones and has a surprising depth to it. I recommend this instrument for traditional players only.
