NEW STOCK IS COMING, SO CHECK IN AGAIN SOON!

  • Another great work from Ŋoŋu, recommended for collectors and yiḏaki fans. The playing characteristics as we got used to from this maker: medium to high backpressure, easy transition between the drone and toot and superb craftsmanship and artwork. Another extra thing I love about this instrument is the overtones that are a little shadowed and compressed, that gives the sound some 'dirty' or 'murky' feel. I did get lost listening to these unique harmonics while playing.

  • This instrument is a great statement of the high level of craftsmanship and precision of Dhapa, just look at the photos: perfectly shaped body, attention to detail, nicely formed mouthpiece and bell, all the reasons why his works are favoured by ŋäpaki (non-Indigenous) players and yiḏaki collectors. Apart from the look, it is also a great didgeridoo: the drone is easy to play, the transition to the toot is effortless and the backpressure is well-balanced. I recommend this superb instrument for serious players and collectors.

  • A nice natural, slim yiḏaki from Yilpara outstation in the Blue Mud Bay. The sound is clear and rich in acoustics, the backpressure is in the medium-range and makes this excellent instrument an easy-player. The transition between the drone and toot is effortless. The photos might not reflect the actual size of this instrument, its body is slim, long and lightweight. The mouthpiece is quite small (shaped with a knife) and can be opened up further if the future owner wishes so. Due to its shape, sound and playing characteristics, this is a classic old-style yiḏaki, therefore I recommend it to serious collectors.

  • A high-pitched yiḏaki with confined internal chamber, and 'murky' sound (that I always appreciate). Due to its high backpressure I found slower-rhythms more suitable to play on this stick, and once you spend some time with this excellent instrument, you can find many beautiful harmonics in its sound. I recommend it for traditional-followers only.

  • Even though I have not appreciated high-pitched instruments lately, I need to admit instruments created by Ŋoŋu during the past few months changed my appetite for these instruments - and this one is one of the highlights. A beautiful stick with stunning painting, rich, full-bodied sound and superb playing characteristics: high backpressure, highly-responsive and fun-to play. One of those instruments that is truly hard to sell. Congratulations for the future owner in-advance.

  • This instrument is a good catch for someone who is looking for a low-pitched, big resonator trumpet; I did immediately fall in love with this amazing instrument when I recently going through the stock in the Yirrkala art centre, its sound has a warmth and unique characteristic. The backpressure is quite low, and despite its wide open chambers and length, this instrument is surprisingly easy to play and quite responsive.  I recommend for both contemporary and traditional players, however it will most likely find home with someone who is looking for a meditative instrument for their own pleasures.

  • An ex-ceremonial yiḏaki for collectors and traditional didgeridoo fans, wrapped with electrical tape that is a common practice amongst Yolŋu nowadays to protect heavily used instruments. The tape provides an easy-to-fix and replace solution for cracks and over-usage. This instrument is a lightweight stick with thin walls. The sound is warn, resonant, the instrument has medium backpressure and responsive to tongue movements. The internal chamber is spacious and clear. A perfect, fun-to-play yiḏaki.

  • I classic 'rocket', highly charged Northeast Arnhem Land-style didgeridoo for those, who are looking for a proper yiḏaki with a big bell and volume. Even though the backpressure is quite high, due to the open bore the airflow is not restricted, therefore the instrument is easy to play. The transition between the drone ant the toot is effortless and sound great when you hit the 'dups'. An amazing catch for yiḏaki-fans.

  • 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!

  • Another top-quality Dhaḻwaŋu clan yiḏaki from Balku; the backpressure is well balanced, the transition between the drone and the toot is easy, the sound is direct and rich. I recommend this yiḏaki for those, who are looking for a traditional instrument with high cultural integrity to practice the traditional playing techniques of East Arnhem.

  • An easy to play instrument, versatile with warm resonant sound and medium, well-balanced backpressure. At the first sight this stick does not look like a seriously good player from Djalu', but don't be confused: what you hear and see is a top-yiḏaki with excellent acoustics and playability.

  • I usually do not prefer to use words like 'simple' or 'classic' when I describe yiḏaki because I am worried that the dear customer might misunderstand what I am trying to say here...however sometimes I run out of words. So, this is a great instrument with simple design, a classic work from Dhapa with open chamber and sound. The mouthpiece is quite big, so you might need some wax to reduce its size. The backpressure is medium, and the instrument is easy to play. Due to its playing characteristics, I recommend this instrument for both traditional fans and those players, who are practicing contemporary didgeridoo playing styles.
