$950

A top-player yiḏaki, highly recommended for those, who are keen to sharpen their tongue movements and better understand the Northeast Arnhem Land playing styles. The instrument is super-responsive to tongue movements and pressure changes through the diaphragm, the backpressure is quite high but very well balanced; the drone plays easy, the dups are easy to hit, and due to the convenient mouthpiece and pressure, the transition between the two is effortless. A perfect fit for yiḏaki nerds.
