Description
 
Listen to sounds from the didgeridoo:
Hand crafted, all natural solid Teak Didgeridoo. This didgeridoo is heavier than bamboo models, approximately 51 inches in length and 3 1/2 inches in diameter, with a 1/4 inch shell thickness. Comes with a fitted heavy duty black nylon bag.

Recommended for beginners and advanced players this hand crafted didgeridoo is made from teak wood taken from government certified, sustainable wood plantations.

Each didgeridoo is kiln dried to protect and preserve the wood from weather damage. Hand bored, the solid teak wood instrument has incredible durability, longevity and beautiful, warm tones.

Because each didgeridoo is hand painted, no two will be the same.

  • 51" long with wax mouth piece
  • Handcrafted with protective clear matte finish

How to Play the Didgeridoo

The didgeridoo is played with lips that continuously vibrate 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. There are recordings of some didgeridoo players playing for as long as forty minutes!

There are many different ways to play the didgeridoo to produce different musical tones. To produce the basic drone, you puff out your cheeks and push out your lips to blow air through your lips and allow them to vibrate and make a low pitched buzzing sound.

To create rhythms on the didgeridoo, you can bounce air through your buzzing lips, using your stomach muscles like you were expelling a belly laugh. You can also use your tongue to produce the same rhythm by putting the tip of your tongue just behind your upper front teeth and snap downward to mouth the word, "ta-ta-ta-ta." Another interesting rhythm can be produced on the didgeridoo by letting your cheeks puff out, squeezing them together slowly, and then allowing them to puff out again.

Lip shaping can produce various harmonies on the didgeridoo. Changing the shape of the opening between your two buzzing lips like you are whistling will produce a higher pitched sound. By mouthing vowels, you can produce various harmonies while droning.

Aztec Painted Teak Wood Didgeridoo 51" w/bag December 29, 2012
Reviewer: Tracey from Davenport, IA United States  
This was the main Christmas present for my daughter and she was EXTREMELY happy when she saw the box.

I ordered the didgeridoo online then, the next day, had a question. I called and the gentleman was very nice and very helpful.

I have no idea the going rate for didgeridoos, but the one I ordered not expensive and it seems to be of good quality.  

When my daughter emptied the box the invoice fell out.  There was even a hand written thank-you on the invoice.  Nice touch.

Thank you for excellent service and a quality item at a very good price.  I will recommend you to others.
