Gawaratj #2 Munuŋgurr yiḏaki D#/F# (HLY-349) SOLD

$500

Out of stock

A nice natural, slim yiḏaki from Yilpara outstation in the Blue Mud Bay. The sound is clear and rich in acoustics, the backpressure is in the medium-range and makes this excellent instrument an easy-player. The transition between the drone and toot is effortless. The photos might not reflect the actual size of this instrument, its body is slim, long and lightweight. The mouthpiece is quite small (shaped with a knife) and can be opened up further if the future owner wishes so.
Due to its shape, sound and playing characteristics, this is a classic old-style yiḏaki, therefore I recommend it to serious collectors.
