Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki Eb/F (HLY-306)


1 in stock

Another great catch for those who would like to own a yiḏaki from Djalu’ – or would like to get another good stick in their collection. Due to the spacious internal chamber and the open bell the backpressure is medium to low, you can feel the resonant warm sound throughout your body – both as the player and the listener. The drone is easy to hit and sounds great. The mouthpiece might require some wax, however I have managed to play it easily.
A great instrument for slower, meditative rhythms and playing styles.
