David Brian mako C# (HLM-44)


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 resonant body with thin walls. I highly recommend this excellent mako for those players, who want to sharpen their skills on West Arnhem style.
