Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki (HLY-221)

$750

1 in stock

A slow-player instrument with a nice growl to its sound; even though the backpressure is quite low, the instrument is surprisingly responsive and easy to play. the walls are thick, the chamber is somewhat confined at the top-section of the body. I recommend this great didgeridoo for those, who wish to try an old-style yiḏaki.
