$1200

Even though I have not appreciated high-pitched instruments lately, I need to admit instruments created by Ŋoŋu during the past few months changed my appetite for these instruments – and this one is one of the highlights. A beautiful stick with stunning painting, rich, full-bodied sound and superb playing characteristics: high backpressure, highly-responsive and fun-to play. One of those instruments that is truly hard to sell. Congratulations for the future owner in-advance.
