Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki (HLY-254)

$1200

1 in stock

A solid yiḏaki with tick walls, open bell and superb playing qualities and excellent acoustics. The dups are very easy to hit and sound great, the backpressure is quite high – exactly what you expect from an F# pitched stick. This didgeridoo is suitable for both slow and fast rhythms, although you will need to be prepared to have enough lung capacity to pump adequate air into its chamber. I recommend this instrument for players who wish to improve their traditional playing style.
