|Didgeridoo Crafters: Naiuwa Didgeridoos from Australia|
|Price Range: $297 & Up|
|Attributes: The traditional choice with warm and rich tones. Our eucalyptus didgeridoos from Australia are purchased at fair trade prices and are naturally termite hollowed in the Australian Outback. Eucalyptus is a dense wood that creates a clean sound while having more warmth than modern materials. We purchase our didges straight from Naiuwa in Queensland Australia. They are good friends of ours. Ordering direct allows us to make sure the didges we purchase are at a fair trade price that is set by them. Feel good knowing your purchase helps support their Aboriginal owned family business.|
|The didgeridoo originates as a musical instrument of the North Australian Aborigine. It is traditionally made from one of many species of Eucalyptus saplings. The Eucalyptus is naturally hollowed out by termites whose nests abound in the millions.|
|Didgeridoo Crafters: Tribal Earth, India
|Price Range: $29.99 & Up|
|Attributes: A great value and affordable way to learn how to play. Our Modern Didgeridoos are made from high density, custom extruded polyresin. This durable material has a very clear, crisp sound with innovative designs.|

|Didgeridoo Crafters: Jack Reeder, AJ Reeder, Marko Johnson, Travis Zumwalt, Geoff Frost, Karl Kalbaugh, Chad Butler|
|Made in the USA. Price Range: $300 & Up
|Materials: Didgeridoos made from Yucca, Agave, Gourd, Leather, Hardwood|
|Attributes: Typically loud, responsive, and well balanced players. Our USA crafters make didgeridoos out of domestic woods. Domestic wood didgeridoos are crafted out of soft or hard woods. The inner bore shape is hand carved allowing the crafter a lot of control over the playing characteristics. They also craft from yucca, agave, gourd and leather. Yucca and agave didgeridoos are lightweight, thin walled, and very resonant. Gourd didgeridoos are pieced together using many gourds. The organic material of leather creates a big bold sound.|
|This is recycling at its best! Each one is a unique piece of playable art! Each crafter spends a lot of time searching out prime materials that produce top quality instruments. The finished product is always a didge that has been carefully crafted with much time and patience that shows!|
|Didgeridoo Artist: Sara Johnson from Michigan
|Price Range: starts at $100|
|Materials: Sara paints all types of didgeridoos with custom designed artwork|
|Attributes: Varies, depending on the didgeridoo you choose.|
|Order your didge, in the key that you want, and have Sara Johnson custom paint it for you. We will find you the perfect didge and ship it directly to Sara. She will work with you on your very own design. Sara paints didges on a more personal level, perhaps to represent something very sacred or meaningful to you, or just done in particular colors with a particular motif. Each one that she does is a unique work of art and will never be duplicated. Sara is a wonderful soul who has amazing artistic talent that she loves to share.|
|What key is right for me?|
|For beginner players we recommend the key of C, D, or E. This is the mid range. Higher keys like F and G take tighter lip pressure and lots of diaphragm pushing. These higher keys are great for fast rhythmical playing. Lower keys like A and B take really loose lip pressure and more air. They work great for slow meditative playing styles. The keys of C, D, and E fall somewhere in between and are easier for beginners to learn on. Most didge players have a collection of didges (some have one in every key). We suggest you listen to our sound clips of the different keys to see which one you like the best.|
