Wapurpurr Wunuŋmurra yidaki (HLY-236) SOLD


Out of stock

Another great instrument by Wapurrpurr warm sound with rich acoustics and easy playability. The open bore gives a bigger than usual mouthpiece (4cm), so I had to use wax to reduce the size to be able to play it comfortably. The walls are quite thin, therefore it is a lightweight and highly resonant instrument. A great pick for someone who is looking for an ‘unusual’ yiḏaki.
