Ŋoŋu Ganambarr yidaki G/G (HLY-355) SOLD

$1150

Out of stock

Top-quality yiḏaki recommended for serious players and collectors. If you are familiar with traditional instruments, we do not need to introduce Ŋoŋu, one of the most productive yiḏaki makers of our time.
As  you can see, it is a high-pitched yiḏaki with high backpressure and due to its tapered trumpet-like shape, its sound is highly-resonant and powerful. The transition between the drone and the toot is easy (both in the same key!), the instrument is super responsive for tongue and lip movements.
This yiḏaki gets high scores from us!
