A simple looking instrument from Larry with great acoustics and playing characteristics, solid walls and conical body. The backpressure is well-balanced, the instrument is responsive for tongue and lip movements that makes this great yiḏaki a versatile player suitable to practice proper North-east Arnhem Land style techniques. The sound is warm, rich in overtones, the transition between the drone and toot is effortless.
A great catch for yiḏaki-fans.
