Story Behind the Art: The artisans of Bali, Indonesia are skilled masters in the art of carving wood and ceramics. Both are unique talents that have been handed down through the generations. They're perfectionists at what they do and love to share their gift for all to enjoy! The artisans that have created these instruments are specialists in both the design detail and musicality. Each one is hand crafted with intricate designs and patterns to give each instrument a unique look and feel.
Believed to be world's oldest instrument, the didgeridoo appeals to all types of musicians around the world. The extended length of the instrument creates an incredible low, bellowing horn tone. The instrument is played by placing your lips around the top, creating an airlock. The didgeridoo resembles the tuba in this aspect. Blow smoothly and evenly while vibrating your lips to make the droning sound using a special breathing technique called circular breathing. This requires a person to breathe in through the nose while expelling air out of the mouth using the tongue and cheeks. By using circular breathing, a skilled didgeridoo player can fill up his lungs and hold a note for a very long time and create melodies with various tongue and mouth techniques.
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
A gift for my son-in-law ---looks authentic and could be from Australia although it isn't. He is excited and is trying to find out how to play it. A fun, inexpensive gift for one who has almost everything and is interested in musical instruments.
I did not know what I was getting into when I ordered this instrument. It is huge, and a bit hard for me to handle because I am short. I have managed to play it both standing, sitting in a chair, on a stool and on the floor. My main problem is that I don;t have the lungs to sustain this instrument. An admitted smoker, we are working on quitting and in the midst of a fitness program that should give me more wind. I working on circular breathing, the method used to play the Didgeridoo, but don't look for many instructions on how to play or learn the technique ot circular breathing.
Hello shawn3131, This didgeridoo has received excellent reviews! This didgeridoo is not pitched to play in specific keys. Some manufacturers do make these to play in specific keys, however, this one is not. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 14, 2013
