I usually do not prefer to use words like ‘simple’ or ‘classic’ when I describe yiḏaki because I am worried that the dear customer might misunderstand what I am trying to say here…however sometimes I run out of words. So, this is a great instrument with simple design, a classic work from Dhapa with open chamber and sound. The mouthpiece is quite big, so you might need some wax to reduce its size. The backpressure is medium, and the instrument is easy to play. Due to its playing characteristics, I recommend this instrument for both traditional fans and those players, who are practicing contemporary didgeridoo playing styles.
Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3.3cm
