Many of our customers are interested in buying a natural instrument from Master Djalu’ – here it is one! The aperture along the top of the instrument is confined, therefore the backpressure is quite high, that can be challenging for many players. I always encourage customers to challenge their skills, and purchase an instrument like this, since it will help to understand the dynamics of a highly-charged yiḏaki – instead of playing fast, try slow rhythms and melodic beats. This instrument is very responsive, the ‘dups’ are easy to hit, the sound has a very high resonance with plenty of overtones. This yiḏaki is a good deal for those, who are looking for something different to update their stock.Listen to this yiḏaki here:

A fast, high-pitched and versatile yiḏaki from Djalu' with solid walls. The instrument has high backpressure and 'poppy' toots, responsive to tongue and lip movements, so I recommend this instrument for those, who are looking for a great stick to practice fast rhythms and want to train their diaphragm.Key: G Length: 156.5cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3cm Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping For details and specifications see the 'Additional information' tab below.

Here is a good opportunity for yiḏaki-nerds: a used ceremonial instrument from Marikuku with great playing characteristics. The chamber is tight at the top and opens up towards the bell (look at the shape of this instrument!), the dups are really easy to hit and sound amazing; the volume is high, the instrument responds well and does whatever the players wishes to hear. It is a heavily used stick, the timber had to cope with a lot and washed through many times. The sound currently is quite dry, that lights up with some water inside. The instrument is cracked at the bell, that is held together with silver duct tape. This yiḏaki is a great example of didgeridoos favoured by Yolŋu ceremonial players nowadays, so we recommend it for collectors who want to get a hold of a unique instrument.Key: G/G# Lenght: 134.5cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 2.8cm Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping For details and specifications see 'Additional information' tab below.

Top-quality yiḏaki recommended for serious players and collectors. If you are familiar with traditional instruments, we do not need to introduce Ŋoŋu, one of the most productive yiḏaki makers of our time. As you can see, it is a high-pitched yiḏaki with high backpressure and due to its tapered trumpet-like shape, its sound is highly-resonant and powerful. The transition between the drone and the toot is easy (both in the same key!), the instrument is super responsive for tongue and lip movements. This yiḏaki gets high scores from us!Key: G Length: 135.5cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3cm Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping For details and specifications see 'Additional information' tab below.
