Harry Malibirr yiḏaki E/F# (HLY-425)

$750

1 in stock

A superb instrument with excellent acoustics, playability and sound: the drone is rich in overtones and has a unique depth to it, the backpressure is well balanced and the ‘dup’ is easy to hit (also sound amazing), and the warm drone is in the mid-range and has a nice resonant-feel. The instrument has re-painted that suggest it has been used in ceremonial context before. I recommend this stick for players who are looking for a unique addition to their collection.
