See below the selection of didgeridoos made in West Arnhem Land

  • A slow-player mako in the lower key-range. Due to its low backpressure and resonance, it is a quite meditative instrument. Once I poured water through the inside, the sound got rich in overtones, so I would recommend for the future owner to oil the timber in order to reach its real potential.

    Key: C# Length: 126cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 4-4.5cm, the mouthpiece is waxed Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping Listen to this mako here:
  • A top-player instrument for those who wish to practice the kunborrk style of Central and West Arnhem Land. This instrument has a characteristic sound and resonance with medium backpressure, plenty of acoustics and solid, but resonant body. I highly recommend this excellent mako for traditional players, who want to sharpen their skills on West Arnhem style.

  • A unique opportunity for collectors to own a rustic, old-school mako made by senior songman and didgeridoo maker Jack Nawilil. As you can see on the photos, the outside of the instrument is course, the mouthpiece and the bell are natural. The backpressure is quite low, therefore the player needs to acquire control over the airflow. The sound has an interesting echoey taste, that you might be able to hear in the sound sample. The timber is dry, naturally I would recommend oil in the inside, however it might change the unique acoustics of this instrument. I recommend this great mako for those players, who are looking for something unique to update their collection.

    Key: C Lenght: 133.5cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 4.3cm, the mouthpiece is waxed Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping Listen to this mako here:
  • 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.

    Key: B Lenght: 153cm Mouthpiece internal diameter: 3.5cm (waxed) Available from Yirrkala, NT Australia with worldwide shipping For details and specifications see the 'Additional information' tab below. Listen to this mago here:
