Marikuku Wirrpanda yiḏaki Eb/G (HLY-475) SOLD


Out of stock

A great instrument from Marikuku for all, traditional and contemporary players. Due to the wide, open bore, this stick has lots of potentials, and the medium backpressure gives lots of ‘space’ for the player to apply different playing styles. The sound has a strong bass and fills up space around you. The mouth is open, so you might want to put some wax on.
I found lots of fun in playing this instrument, a great catch.
