Wapurrpurr is delivering top-quality yiḏaki for some time, his works are highlights of our stock updates recently – this instrument is another example of that. Open bore, warm, full-bodied sound with rich acoustics and medium backpressure. You can find a patch on the neck of the instrument that is a type of repair often used by the maker. We recommend this instrument for players and collectors who want to buy a good quality instrument from a popular maker.
