Didgeridoo 185, Silver Birch in D#.
Long and slim at just under 2m, this didgeridoo is keyed at D# with C then A overtones.

It is comfortable to play, with a mouthpiece shaped to 29mm, gradually widening over its 196.5cm length to a bell 11x15cm in diameter. The shape of the bell retains much of its original shape with some bark being left on making it into a feature (I have tried this with other silver birch didgeridoos but not been successful until now – as it has a tendency to peel during the making process). I have made the walls thicker than normal to accommodate the shape and feature of the bark on the bell, so the didge weighs in at 4.2kg.

An instrument for all levels of playing as it is responsive and has good balance. The toots come easy whether playing slow or fast and vocals, passive or active, sound great. As the bore is slim the instrument can be played percussively with fast rhythms yet sounds good when playing slower, softer rhythms.

Gathered near Arundel, West Sussex, on the South Downs, this Silver Birch didgeridoo has been sealed and finished with a combination of Tung oil, Danish oil and wax. The bore has been coated with several layers of Tung Oil to help protect, preserve and enhance the wood and maintain a clear sound. The exterior has been coated with several layers of Danish Oil then topped with wax giving a soft finish both to touch and visually. This will also help to enhance and protect the finish to the wood around the bell where the bark remains.
