• Here is a unique opportunity for yiḏaki players and collectors to own an original B. Wunuŋmurra. I do not think I need to introduce Old Man for those who are interested in yiḏaki; for those who are new to the yiḏaki-art: Mr B. Wunuŋmurra is one of the most known and most influential yiḏaki makers of our age, passed away a few years ago (see more in his bio by clicking on his name).

    This stick is quite short, the internal aperture is open and spacious all the way along the instrument - therefore the backpressure is medium, and the sound has plenty of bass and overtones. The player needs to experiment and practice how to hit the dups, however once he got it right, it is effortless and comes easy. A great stick to upgrade the collection with something unique! Listen to this yiḏaki here:
  • A great Dhaḻwaŋu yiḏaki from one of the most productive makers; the backpressure is balanced, therefore the instruments plays effortless with a good power, volume and transition between the drone and the toot. 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.

  • A great a versatile stick from one of the most famous makers of Northeast Arnhem Land. Since Mr B. Wunuŋmurra  passed away recently, this is one of the last opportunities to purchase an instrument made by him. After the instrument and its player warmed up, its sound is full of life, rich in low and high overtones; easy to play, responsive to every movements of the lips and tongue, the toot is easy to hit, suitable for fast playing. Beautiful shape and painting, I recommend this yiḏaki for traditional players and/or collectors.

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.

  • A simple looking, but top-quality player traditional instrument - as we got used to it from Bibibak (that is the reason why he is one of my favourite makers). A solid yiḏaki with a little bit 'dirty' sound, balanced medium backpressure, and easy transition between the drone and toot. I recommend this instrument for players who are following the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land.

    Listen to this yiḏaki here:
  • Bibibak Munuŋgurr is a well known yiḏaki maker nowadays. When I come across with his work, I am always sure, that the good sound quality of his instruments is guaranteed. Bibibak is a ceremonial player, so he exactly knows what the good yiḏaki is. This instrument is a nice bush-yiḏaki with natural bore – that is, in my opinion, ideal – and sharp edges at both ends of the stick. The instrument plays easy, the rich and ‘bassy’ drone comes effortless, the back pressure is medium, the transition between the drone and the toot is easy. It is a really fun-to-play yiḏaki! The painting is not the best quality, the instrument had been repainted, that doesn’t add to its value for many players, that’s why I dropped the price – it shouldn’t confuse you though, the playing qualities comes first!

  • Another great eye-catching instrument from Bibibak! It has a surprisingly high backpressure compared to its mid-range key, that needs to be handled by an experienced player – once you learn it, this yiḏaki becomes a powerful tool! It is a very responsive, fast-player yiḏaki, the toots are easy to hit, and as soon as it warmed up, the sound becomes rich in overtones. I recommend this instrument for those, who are practising the traditional playing styles of Northeast Arnhem Land.

Since the sound is rich in bass and overtones, this stick is great for relaxed, meditative playing styles. The maker of the instrument is unknown, the artwork painted by a senior Yolŋu lady.

  • A very ‘slow-player’ instrument with deep, relaxed sound from Maningrida, North-Central Arnhem Land. The walls are quite thick all the way along the body, that’s why it’s a heavy stick. I had to spend some time to find the sound I was looking for in this instrument, since the play-ability is unbalanced and the backpressure is low. A very slow-moving stick with good bass and overtones after a few minutes of playing. The painting depicts ceremonial body pendants.

    Listen to this mago here:
  • 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.

    Listen to this mago here:
  • Dhapa is constantly delivering top-quality didgeridoos for the last few years, it is not surprising, that he is one of the most popular makers of the Northeast Arnhem Land region. His instruments are sought not only by ŋäpaki (non-Indigenous people), but I also often see his instruments played by Yolŋu players during performances or public ceremonies. This instrument is a great example of Dhapa’s work, the plain timber highlights his attention to detail and effort to give fine finish to his works. The mouthpiece and the bell are perfectly shaped, as you run your hands through the surface you can feel the maker’s refined vision and intention to provide high-quality artwork. Its sound is rich in overtones and bass; the switch between the drone and the trumpet-sound is effortless, the ‘dups’ are very easy to hit. We recommend this instrument for both contemporary and traditional players.
