Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yiḏaki C/E (HLY-379) SOLD


Out of stock

Some of our long-term, returning customers might have noticed that during the recent months there were a few low-keyed instruments offered on this website. The reason for this is that I felt in love with these acoustics, low-tone-resonance and unique playability. I was lucky enough to be able to spend quite a lot of time in the the Yirrkala art centre and pull out these amazing instruments from the older stock there (watch out, more to come!).
Here is another one: lovely deep tone, warm and powerful resonance, medium to low backpressure, easy to play, good sounding dups and toot and open aperture. Amazing instrument, recommended for players who wish to slow down their playing style and descend to a deeper level.

Key: C
Length: 166.5cm
