  • A top-quality traditional instrument from a master maker. Due to the size of the instrument, the thin walls, the spacious internal chamber and bell, this yiḏaki has superb sound and playing characteristics. The medium backpressure is balanced, the transition between the drone and the toot is easy and effortless, the sound is rich in acoustics and has quite high volume and warm resonance. I recommend this instrument for traditional players.

  • I classic 'rocket' Northeast Arnhem Land-style didgeridoo for those, who are looking for a highly-charged 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 easy and sound great when you hit the 'dups'. An amazing catch for yiḏaki-fans.

  • Another great catch for those who would like to own a yiḏaki from Djalu' - or would like to get another good stick in their collection. Due to the spacious internal chamber and the open bell the backpressure is medium to low, you can feel the resonant warm sound throughout your body - both as the player and the listener. The drone is easy to hit and sounds great. The mouthpiece might require some wax, however I have managed to play it easily. A great instrument for slower, meditative rhythms and playing styles.

  • A high-pitched yiḏaki from Djalu; the body of the instrument is quite short compared to the larger sticks favoured by Old Man. The backpressure is in the higher range, well balanced and urges the player to play fast rhythms. The instrument is responsive to tongue and lip movements, and the transition to the 'dups' is easy. A great catch to practice traditional style!

  • 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.

  • A simple but great yiḏaki from Djarrkpi outstation, about 3 hours drive from Yirrkala. The humble size and shape of the instrument do not give us a hint what is inside: surprisingly clear sound with medium backpressure and easy transition between the drone and toot. We recommend this didgeridoo for both contemporary and traditional players, however someone who would like to tap into the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land would be grateful to own this stick.

  • Here is a classic traditional Northeast Arnhem Land style yiḏaki for those, who are looking for a unique instrument for their collection. The instrument has medium to low backpressure, responsive for tongue movements and plays very well. A lightweight didgeridoo with thin walls.

    This little gem was sitting in the Yirrkala art centre for a number of years until I noticed, I consider it one of the best catches of this year so far. Do not miss it!

  • A heavy-weight yiḏaki with tapered, nicely shaped body, big bell and volume. Due to the confined internal chamber along the top section of the instrument the backpressure is quite high, therefore I recommend this instrument for experienced players - but once you learn how to 'handle' it, this didgeridoo is a master-blaster. The sound is somewhat 'dirty' that I like very much, the transition between the drone and the trumpet sound and the dups is easy. I recommend this great huge stick for traditional players who are looking for an instrument to practice and learn how to control a high-pitched yiḏaki.

  • A unique opportunity for those, who are looking for a high-pitched super-fast yiḏaki. Since the backpressure is high, I do recommend this instrument for experienced players. A light stick with thin walls, the internal aperture is open and tapered; the dup's are easy to hit - but then again, you need experience to reach the full potential of this great instrument. Here is another beautiful artwork from one of the best yiḏaki makers of our time.

  • A good opportunity for collectors to get an old mago-style traditional instrument that we obtained from an art collector in 2010, who purchased it from a local maker in Batchelor community sometimes in the late '80s. Even though it was sitting in a wardrobe for a few decades, the marks on its body suggest it used to be played. Due to the length of the instrument and the natural internal chamber, the backpressure is quite low. The sound is somewhat dry - that is mainly due to the few decades while it was sitting in a wardrobe. Once it is watered through, the depth of the sound opens up and makes it enjoyable to play. A great old-style didgeridoo for those, who are practicing the West Arnhem traditional playing styles.

  • A great and affordable didgeridoo from a well-known yiḏaki maker who is residing between Dhälinybuy homeland and Nhulunbuy township. The top section of the instrument is quite thin including the wall and internal chambers, however the backpressure is lower than you would expect: it is in the mid-range. It is an easy to play yiḏaki with full-bodied sound and great acoustics, responsive for tongue movements and suitable to play even fast rhythms. I recommend this instrument for traditional players who are looking for a top-quality stick.

  • A classic Yali yiḏaki with high backpresure, thick walls, tapered shape and easy-to-handle playing characteristics. The sound is loud and rich in high overtones; as you are blowing the air into the mouthpiece, you can literally feel the backpressure on your lips and inside your cheek - great controlled-playing exercise.  I recommend this didgeridoo for those experienced players, who are following the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land, and looking for a great instrument to play fast rhythms.
