"Why did you choose this product?"
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...)...

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!
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 touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

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.Read More
