The didgeridoo is a wind instrument. It was originally made from Eucalyptus trees naturally hollowed out by termites in Australia. The didgeridoo was developed by Aboriginal peoples of northern Australia, likely within the last 1,000 years, and is now in use around the world. The name for the Yolngu instrument is the yiḏaki, or more recently by some, mandapul; in west Arnhem Land it is known as a mago. The Didgeridoo was most used in Ceremonies and other social gatherings.
A didgeridoo is usually cylindrical or conical, and can measure anywhere from 1 to 3 m (3 to 10 ft) long. Most are around 1.2 m (4 ft) long. Generally, the longer the instrument, the lower its pitch or key. However, flared instruments play a higher pitch than unflared instruments of the same length.
The Airdidge is a collapsible carbon fiber didgeridoo. Weighing only 1.2lbs and folding down to 14” makes this the easiest didgeridoo to travel with. Fully extended, it folds out to 73” and plays in the key of Bb. Push the mouth piece in one notch and it plays in the key of C#. Remove the bottom end while in the C# position and it plays in the key of E.
The back pressure and tone of this didgeridoo is absolutely mind-blowing. Whether you are recording music in your studio or taking a trip around the world, the Airdidge is your most affordable and travel friendly didgeridoo option.
