Another top-quality work from Dhapa, just look at the photos and listen to its sound below: amazing work and finish on the body, tapered walls, great finish (look at the mouthpiece and the bell), balanced backpressure, easy transition between drone and toot, straight, rich sound. The instrument plays between Eb and E when played dry, the key slightly moves up once its warmed up. If you are looking for a perfect yiḏaki, go no further.
