Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yidaki E/G (HLY-329)

$900

1 in stock

An easy to play instrument with warm resonant sound and medium backpressure. Since the drone is quite hight (plays in G) I needed a few minutes to learn how to hit the ‘dup’. I recommend this great instrument for both who follow traditional and contemporary playing styles.
