$400

A super-lightweight stick with thin walls, resonant body and open aperture. This instrument is easy to play, comes with medium to low backpressure and warm, clear sound. I recommend this instrument for contemporary didgeridoo players who are looking for a traditional stick that is easy to carry around.
