Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yiḏaki G/F# (HLY-346) SOLD

$1000

Out of stock

A fast, high-pitched and versatile yiḏaki from Djalu’ with solid walls. The instrument has high backpressure and ‘poppy’ toots, responsive to tongue and lip movements, so I recommend this instrument for those, who are looking for a great stick to practice fast rhythms and want to train their diaphragm.
