Dhapa Ganambarr yiḏaki E/G (HLY-482) SOLD

$1000

Out of stock

A nice yiḏaki in the medium key range with medium backpressure and full-bodied sound. The chamber is quite open all the way through and opens up in a tapered bell. The instrument is capable to deliver both slower and faster rhythms, really fun to play. I recommend this excellent stick for both traditional and contemporary players.
