Dhapa Ganambarr yiḏaki C#/F (HLY-466)

$1100

1 in stock

A yiḏaki in the deeper key range with medium backpressure and full-bodied sound. The chamber is open all the way through and opens up in a tapered bell. The wall is even and gradually gets thinner towards the bell – beautiful craftsmanship, just look at the photos! Even though the instrument feels like a slow player at first, it is capable for faster rhythms after warmed up. I recommend this excellent stick for both traditional and contemporary players.

Key: C#
