David Brian mago (HLM-35) SOLD

$700

Out of stock

A high-resonant stick with thin walls and large internal chamber. The backpressure is low, therefore this instrument is quite relaxed and easy to play; the sound is rich in acoustics, deep and warm. The mouthpiece does not have wax at the moment, although it will be required since the opening is quite large. A great mago for kunborrk style!
