Didgeridoos are amplifier and modifier to the sound you're making and yelling into the didgeridoo,
# It has spirituality: a distinct and unique sound emanating from the delicate inside configuration brought about by the termites' taste for good quality hardwood and the knowledgeable effort of a good didgeridoo craftsman,
# It is a medium for aboriginal artwork, which should reflect the spirit of the didgeridoo and its value as an aboriginal musical instrument.
How to buy didgeridoos
When buying a didgeridoo in a store or on the net look for the one that appeals to you visually.
* Look for individual artistic style with deep roots in the traditional aboriginal culture of the area of origin.
* Then look at the taper, the elongated cone shape of the didgeridoo tells about the back pressure and somewhat about the overtones. A flaring out in a bell or a chiseled out base acts like an amplifier.
* The bore makes all the difference: it is the spirit of the didgeridoo, and as with men, it is hardly distinguishable from outside.
* Test the didgeridoo: play or listen to it.
If you not (yet) a skilled player use these simple tests:
* Tap on the mouthpiece with your open palm. If the sound you hear is a clear ringing sound than the didgeridoo has a good resonance. If the sound is cushioned out, muffled than it is not a good buy.
* Put the mouthpiece to your ears and you will hear the resonant frequencies of the background noise amplified in the didgeridoo, compare it to other didgeridoos and make your choice.
