This instrument has been sitting in my unreleased stock for a few years, made in 2016. After warm and moist inside, it has surprisingly good playing qualities: sharp sound, full of overtones, responsive to tongue movements, the backpressure is medium and the transition from drone to toot is easy. A great yiḏaki on a great price!
