This instrument might be a challenging one for many players due to its extremely high backpressure. Although yiḏaki with high pressure is not popular amongst the (non-Indigenous) players, I often recommend these instruments to challenge skills and muscles. It also helps you to understand the dynamics of the didgeridoo in general. So if you do not have one, here is one for you from a master maker on a good price!Listen to this yiḏaki here:
Another 'top gun' from Dhapa: wide and natural internal aperture all the way along the body, tapered bell, open and crisp sound with excellent acoustics, medium and well balanced backpressure, easy-to-play drone and easy-to-hit dups, and finally, superb craftsmanship. If you know Dhapa's work, you may have a good idea what it feels like to play this stick; if you don’t know what kind of instruments he creates, have a good look and listen.Key: F# Length: 130cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3.5cm Available from Sydney, Australia with worldwide shipping For details and specifications see the 'Additional information' tab below.
