In Duende Didgeridoo workshop, we finally have a new tool, a new bandsaw! Here’s what we know about it! (0. It is beautiful! We love it as a functional sculpture!) 1. It is old. Older than 60 years, but more than that we don’t know. 2. It is heavy. Probably a bit less than a […]

We have a special story for you today. At Duende Didgeridoo we meet many people who have very strong connection to the didgeridoo. We meet people who look for something special, something good beyond words, beyond marketing, beyond superficial, the real deal. In short, we are blessed to meet people who have deep connection with […]

Unlike many modern objects we can buy, and here I especially mean phones, computers, cars and even houses… instruments you can buy for a lifetime. Especially didgeridoos. Especially some of them. Didgeridoos are actually very robust instruments. Specially if they are made of artificial materials or metal (which I don’t know how to classify as […]

Changes come… We have decided to change our logo on the instruments, to make it smaller and cuter :-) I hope you will agree. Our old logo was burned with a metal stamp into the wood. And since the didgeridoo is curved, we needed to make a small straight surface on it to be able […]

We are often told, since early age, not to compare with others. And I love that. For obvious reasons this practice will keep us in balance. But I want to speak about another practice of comparison, which may not keep us in balance, but will definitely keep us in the learning process. I often, very […]

For a long time in short modern didgeridoo history, there was a hype about big bells. But we never said out loud why the hype came to be in the first place. So I will say it. Because didgeridoo world is mostly men’s world and men are funny big boys with toys, so we all […]

During the years of dealing with didgeridoos I learned to listen to its sound and I learned to hear many more nuances of sound and layers that I am now able to perceive individually and at the same time. I can enjoy the differences of all the instruments and find more or less beauty in certain aspects of them. Sometimes it is like having a sound massage inside…

You may have noticed that I like to test our didgeridoos a lot. The aim and consequence of which is that I feel I have a relatively realistic point of view towards didgeridoos. If you read my texts about didgeridoos they are very rarely full of superlatives and there is almost always some bad aspect […]

Hello Didgeridoo Players of the World! On our travels, meeting thousands and thousands of didgeridoo players we noticed one thing- most didgeridoo players cannot point into the sound of the didgeridoo. In other words, this means that most didgeridoo players cannot speak in terms of frequencies when referring to the sound of the didgeridoo.  This […]

We have been working on some new instruments for the last months and some of them are approaching the finishing phase. I took my time to carve and, even more, do new stone inlays. There are always new ideas present around here, so I am already thinking about different materials and techniques. We will see […]
