Ŋutjapuy Marawili yidaki F/G (HLY-361) SOLD

$450

Out of stock

A nice natural yiḏaki from Yilpara outstation in the Blue Mud Bay. The sound has nice growl and ‘busy’ or ‘dirty’ feel to it. The backpressure is quite high and the transition between the drone ant the toot is easy, the dups sound great. I recommend this instrument for players who look for a natural traditional stick on a great price.
