$1150

Out of stock

Another great work from Ŋoŋu, recommended for collectors and yiḏaki fans. The playing characteristics as we got used to from this maker: medium to high backpressure, easy transition between the drone and toot and superb craftsmanship and artwork. Another extra thing I love about this instrument is the overtones that are a little shadowed and compressed, that gives the sound some ‘dirty’ or ‘murky’ feel. I did get lost listening to these unique harmonics while playing.
