Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki C#/F (HLY-315)

$900

1 in stock

A nice instrument from Djalu released from our reserves for those players, who are looking for a slow-player stick with medium to low backpressure. The transition between the drone and toot is easy and sound really great – this is the reason I picked up this stick from the local art centre in Yirrkala. My tuner shows the key between C and C# at 440Hz depending on how hard I blow the instrument.

A great stick from Old Man on a reasonable price .
