I bought this for my teenage Son, and he is enjoying it. It is basically a section of bamboo, with one end narrower then the other. It came with a fabric drawstring cover with a carrying strap, and a cool, textural paint job. You will need to watch on-line videos to figure out how to play this, because the sounds depend mostly on the player. My son, who also plays the trombone, fairly quickly got some interesting sounds going. It is quite the conversation starter when people ask what he got for Christmas.
Such a fun and crazy gift to give my boyfriend for his birthday! This item is huge and intricately decorated, cool sound too! We have it decorating our living room with other interesting pieces- loved this purchase!

This is a fun instrument except my daughter and I are totally incapable of making sounds from it. Not that we haven't had loads of fun trying. Guess we will need to wander around on the internet and find out just how to make this make sounds.......well...the sounds it is supposed to make and not our fun making sounds......LOL

Despite that I saw comments from at least one person that this same product had arrived broken, my gift recipient seemed very pleased with the gift and it arrived intact and just as advertised. Thanks for offering these different kind of musical instruments through Overstock!

Package arrived within a few days and was very well wrapped - protected in bubble wrap and a cloth cover. The design and decoration was very vivid and pretty and felt very authentic. I was also pleased with the sizing. I have seen larger digeridoos but this one was right sized for my 11 year old son. The only thing that would have made this better was if there had been an instructions booklet about caring for and using this nice instrument. Yes...we can find information online but it would have been fun if he had been able to have some information about the instrument and how to use it included with the packaging.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Actual product is a bit darker than pictured

This is a great piece! I bought it for my son for his birthday because we had discovered digeridoos while visiting Hawaii and fell in love with the sound and the shape of them. He was very happy with this present, and so was I.

I received this in the mail and the mouthpiece is cracked and falling to pieces. Granted it is wax but still...... I am deciding if it worth sending back for a new one or suck it up and buy a mouthpiece. Don't know how it plays, it is a gift for Christmas for my son. I checked that I would recommend this product to a friend only because the price is so good.
I bought this for my husband as he has always wanted one. This is very nicely decorated, hand painted with various dots and what looks like the "heavens", stars, about 4' long, and a lot of fun to play with. He plans to learn Christmas songs this year! it was very pretty and fits into our eclectic decor. i believe it was a great value for the money and he was very excited.
We ordered Digeridoos in order for my boyfriend to strenghten his throat muscles, so he can depend less on his CPAP machine. We have been trying to learn the circular breathing. This Didgeridoo is awesome, has a great sound, and even children love it. Have nothing but good things to say about it.
I bought this as a gift for my brother who collects musical instruments from around the world. With over twenty people in the room, I had him open the package, and try to guess what it was. His very newly wed daughter-in-law knew what it was immediately, and even knew how to play it! We've had a lot of fun. Beautiful piece. Lovely tone (when played by the lovely daughter-in-law) and perfect. Thanks, Overstock. You rock. (or in this case, you didgeridoo...)
