This is probably the most characteristic and charismatic Duende didgeridoo made up to the year 2010. It is the first to leave the house, and accidentally we do not have all the specifications and a proper recording. However we will try to describe the extraordinarity of this didgeridoo.

Sound of this didgeridoo can be compared to the highest quality ribbon microphones. It is balanced, juicy, velvety, greasy, fat, big, huge, with a tint of some strong cheese or beer, drinkable, charismatic, easy, heavy, marble hard, nicely polished.

To play it is an honour. It gives you big reward for your breath in terms of huge amount of sound. It spends a bit more air than his Duende companions like “B Fantastique” and “C Fantastique”, due to his more open air channel at the mouthpiece. This same openness gives more relaxed drone, and a bit more distinguished. This instrument is heavy so it takes great majority of vibrations and is extremely calm to play and never dead in any way.

The appearance matches the sound in this dance of forms. Instrument is assembled of pieces of very old and big eucalyptus tree. The old outer parts are left outside, and are partly untouched, so carvings of creatures once living in it are at exhibition when the instrument is played. Oil gave this old wood black colour. Other colours of wood vary from light red to dark red and violet. Brown, gold and yellow in forms of spots, surfaces and stripes over red wood are contributing to the amazing appearance. Green fuchsite fills every hole from little ones forming stellar constellations in dark red sky, to big green lakes in the middle of instrument.

This didgeridoo was made for Zdenko Bašić, the illustrator of “Kosmopterix” (my solo didgeridoo album). For more of Zdenko’s beautiful work visit http://www.bellundertree.com/

This instrument is not for sale. It is possible to make a new instrument in this way on demand. Price on request. Contact us if you are a fantastic fantasizer.
