Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yiḏaki (HLY-271) SOLD


Out of stock

A thunderous, large stick with great playing qualities and superb sound. The drone has plenty of bass and overtones, the transition to the toot is easy and effortless. The instrument is responsive to tongue movements, the backpressure is well-balanced and makes this huge tube effortless to play.

I recommend this yiḏaki for those, who are looking for a big resonator from Djalu’. Collector’s item!
