Troubadour Series Travel Didjeridu: An original modular instrument design with a tunable slide mouthpiece. The ideal didge for traveling musicians, beginning prodigies or compact situations. This instrument is basically the culmination of every thing I desire in a didjeridu, its also my favorite to make! It features functional designs that have taken me many years of experimentation to be satisfied with.

My lace slip joint design is the most important feature of this instrument and allows it to be assembled easily. Besides its functionality, its also an aesthetically pleasing design. The "Lace joint" is technically what I call a compression slip joint and relies on the threaded lace pattern to compress and secure the joint, rather than threads that screw together. This design creates less stress on the joint by eliminating any need to twist and torque the instrument.

Tuning Slide: My tuning slide design allows four standard drone notes (E, D#, D, C#). having the ability to tune your didge on the fly is very valuable, especially in performance or when playing with other instruments. A tuning slide also eliminates the need to travel with multiple Didjeridus. I use a variety of wood types with this design and will layer and finish the woods to compliment the overall look and feel of the instrument. The inner and outer slide tubing is made from aluminum. I also offer custom tuning.

Wood Types. I typically use locally harvested hardwood, but I offer Agave as an option as well. Alder, myrtle wood or ash are wood types I usually have available but it varies, please contact me if you'd like to find out what wood types I have available. Agave will typically save weight compared to the hardwood (about 3lbs vs. about 5lbs), and is known to have have a warm, bass driven sound. Hardwood typically has more attack (responsiveness) than agave. But it really depends on how I shape and tune them.

Bell end: My bell end sizes are typically about 5" in diameter, but I offer larger custom sizes too. I also offer a bell cap option to add more strength and aesthetics.

Custom hard case: I include a soft case with every troubadour series purchase, but I also offer custom hard cases if you want to take your instruments protection (and presentation) to the next level. I personally make each one by hand to custom fit the instrument. The cost for a custom hard case is generally about $300. Please contact me for a quote.

Accessories and customization: Each Troubadour didge includes a tuning slide lock for static tuning, a slide cleaner, and a soft case made in house by my wife. I also offer custom tuning.

Playability: I tune each instrument with versatility in mind. I prefer a didgeridoo to have the capability of playing many different techniques, styles and playing levels. Backpressure, tonal clarity, balanced low to high frequencies, accessible trumpet notes and overall playable range are all important characteristics to me and I do my best to achieve this with every instrument I craft.

THIS DIDGE IS CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE BY CUSTOM ORDER AND WILL TAKE ME 8-12 MONTHS TO COMPLETE.

Absolutely chuffed! I had contacted Tyler with concerns the bag may have been a bit too large for the didgeridoo. He responded quickly and was immensely kind and accommodating. He custom made a bag that fits perfectly, at no extra cost! Such a pleasure working with this amazing seller. Definitely highly recommend! Thank you Tyler!

Tyler and his wife are amazing. I ordered this bag online and when it arrived it was too large for my didge. After writing, I returned the didge and he re-made the bag based on my didge size. Super happy with the service and the final product. Thank you Tyler!

I got Tyler's concert quality bamboo didg in D key. It is a rich and dark brown color with a beautiful sheen to it. It has a powerful and deep sound, and I immediately noticed the back pressure. The sound has a deep bass and it an echo quality to it - like you're at a concert! Tooting is much easier on this as well. Impressive craftsmanship! This is the real deal, I highly recommend.
