Here is a unique opportunity for players and collectors who are searching for a low-pitched yiḏaki. This instrument plays in low B with F toot, low backpressure and slow resonance. The walls are quite solid, the mouthpiece left natural, the bell is chiseled out to slightly open up the aperture. Since the sound is rich in bass and overtones, this stick is great for relaxed, meditative playing styles.
The maker of the instrument is unknown, the artwork painted by a senior Yolŋu lady.
