An excellent instrument, a good example of mako played in the Central-Arnhem Land region to accompany kun-borrk songs: the spacious internal chamber and large bell produces exceptional volume, resonance and acoustics, the backpressure is medium and supports the player to create the characteristic ‘pulling-sound’. The artwork is detailed and beautiful, painted with natural pigments. I recommend this superb instrument for those, who are looking for a mako of the lifetime.
Mouthpiece internal diameter: 4.3cm, the mouthpiece is waxed
Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping
