  • A great little, highly-charged yiḏaki with superb playing qualities. The backpressure is high but well-balanced, therefore it allows the player to play fast while getting down in the 'rabbit hole' with tongue movements and and double breathing. The sound has lots of bass and lacks the higher tones. As you can see on the photos, the maker finished off the surface with a machette, a classic solid bush yiḏaki. Recommended for traditional players, fans and collectors.

  • Returning customers might find this instrument a little unusual from Larry, and they are right: this is not the tapered, 'rocket' sticks we got used to from him, instead it is a slim, long stick that plays in the medium key-range. The backpressure is medium, and almost forces the player to play slower rhythms. The transition between the drone and toot is easy. The sound has great harmonics, warm and has plenty of higher overtones. The body is surprisingly light, the wall is thin and internal chamber is natural. Due to its playing characteristics, I recommend this great instrument for both traditional and contemporary players. Key: D/F# Length: 151cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3cm

  • Djul'djul is a senior artist, the wife of the legendary yiḏaki maker B.Wunuŋmurra who passed a few years ago. Djul'djul was heavily involved in the yiḏaki business, painting the instruments made by her late husband, so probably many of you are familiar with her work. I do not have information on who made the instrument, usually Djul'djul's grandsons are involved in the process. The instrument has medium backpressure, it is responsive and easy to play. The too is easy to hit, the wall is solid therefore the sound is straight-forward. I recommend this excellent yiḏaki for traditional fans.

  • A unique yiḏaki in the deeper key range with medium to low backpressure and full-bodied sound. The chamber is quite open all the way through - I even had to use some wax on you mouthpiece since the opening was a little wide for me - and opens up in a tapered bell. Even though the instrument feels like a slow player at first, it is capable for faster rhythms after warmed up. I recommend this excellent stick for both traditional and contemporary players.

  • A pretty instrument with slim body, medium to high backpressure and lots of high tones in the sound. The internal chamber is quite thin all the way through, that gives an interesting feel to this mako: if you push the air in with the support of your lower stomach, you can hear crisp, higher tones. This stick sings in C#. I recommend this excellent mako for traditional players.
