About:

This style of bamboo Didgeridoo is crafted using the same technique as my “Concert Quality Bamboo Didgeridoos”. This results in a didgeridoo with more playable range, stronger back pressure and trumpet notes that are easier to play. Then I incorporate my tuning slide design to allow the didge to play a range of notes. My tuning slide design is made using aluminum inner and outer sections that can easily slide into tune. The tuning slide also features my signature slide lock to easily lock the slide into position simply by twisting it.

My current slide design allows for a four note standard drone range, but many more notes can be achieve depending on which technique you play (trumpet notes, pitch bends, multi-drone, suto toots, and pop tones for example). The didgeridoo shown in the pictures and in the audio sample of this listing has a drone range of D#, D, C#, C but I offer other tuning ranges.

I have two color options available: "light burned color" and "dark burned color" (see photos). The dark burned color has a high gloss finish and the light burned has a semi-gloss finish (both finish styles are equally as durable).

A great Didgeridoo to learn on or keep you inspired at advanced levels. Average length when the slide is closed is about 65″ inches and about 78″ when the slide is extended to its lowest note. The outside diameter is usually 1 1/4″ on the tuning slide and 3-3 1/2″ inches on the bell end. This didj generally has strong back pressure depending on the slide position.. A versatile didgeridoo for playing mellow and ambient but fully capable of playing rhythmic and percussive styles also. The main advantage of this didgeridoo is note range.

I CURRENTLY MAKE THESE TO ORDER. PLEASE ALLOW 4-6 WEEKS TO FINISH AND SHIP. THANKS!

The bamboo is age and fire cured to prevent checking and cracking. Sealed and finished inside and out with a quality resin finish that is non toxic when cured, waterproof, and very durable. Polished to a nice satin finish. Fitted with a beautiful layered wood mouthpiece. No beeswax needed. High quality craftsmanship. Bamboo naturally has slight variations in color, diameter and length, so each one I make is very similar but slightly different from the one in the photos..

Tuning:

I personally tune all of the didgeridoos I make and always attempt to tune them as close to “perfect” pitch as possible. However, there are many variables that can effect the tuning even after the didge is finished, such as ambient temperature, humidity, climate and the players technique. Therefore I cannot guarantee the didgeridoo I sell will remain in its advertised tuning when its received.

Specifications:

Tuning: The didgeridoo displayed in the photos of this listing and in the audio demo has a tuning slide drone range of: D#, D, C#, C. But other tuning ranges are available.

Just received my new didge from Tyler and I'm totally blown away! It arrived right on time and it sounds and looks better than I could have imagined! Deep, rich resonance, stunning finish and the walnut mouthpiece is the cherry on top. Such amazing craftsmanship- I'd give it ten stars if I could!

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!
