David Brian mago (HLM-34)

$900

1 in stock

A top-player instrument for those who wish to practice the kunborrk style of Central and West Arnhem Land. This instrument has a characteristic sound and resonance with medium backpressure, plenty of acoustics and solid, but resonant body. I highly recommend this excellent mago for traditional players, who want to sharpen their skills on West Arnhem style.
