Mike Parker from USA

I thought that the sound of the didgeridoo was a powerful haunting and beautiful sound. It made me want to get in touch with the tribal side of my soul.

Nelson Solorzano from USA

It felt wonderful!! surprisingly different and I was amazed to realize the significance and extent of cultural conceptions (ethnomusicology in this case). In the following years I've rationalized my impression by identifying the didgeridoo as the "call to the gods". To me it represents the reproduction of ancient sounds that I don't identify with nature (as is usual with other ancient cultures) but with the thunder of powerful engines in their sound and vibrations. These must be similar to those of ancient visitors from outer space with space vessels (similar to Von Danicken's "chariots of the Gods" resembled in the Bible and the grave/tomb slab of stone representing something similar in the Mayas' culture too) that came and through their cultural (they taught everyone many things) and biological (they screwed every/any female they could lay) influence transformed a bunch of semi-monkeys like the Australopithecus Pithecanthropus homo erectus and other pre-homo species into a breed of homo habilis homo sapiens etc. with the use of a conscience intelligence culture reason and spirit that didn't exist before them. This is why the search for/of a "missing link" between apes and humans is useless it doesn't exist as a result of a "natural selection" process (Darwinian theory about the evolution of species or the "survival of the strongest or more apt to adapt to a specific environment") this magnificent change in the destiny and evolution of the (this world's) endemic species was a result of the influence of an alien culture from outer space. The ancient culture of Australian origin (the only one in the world that had remained untouched for thousands of years) remembered these visitors and created the sounds of the didgeridoo to represent the sounds made by the space ships in an effort to call them back as the "Gods from outer space" and benefactors of their ancient culture and by extension of today's humanity. This inspirational interpretation is why I want to play a didgeridoo I must have one to participate in this emotional and inspirational process of a "call to the Gods".

Nick from New Zealand

Freaky stuff! and there was a puddle of spit at the end of it which being an 8-year-old boy I thought was pretty cool


Awkward but unique sound.....

Pat Litke from USA

At first I thought it sounded weird but then as I got to listening I was awe-stricken and from then on I was in love with it. I ended up making one buying two and am in the process of making a wooden one.

The sound of this instrument is unbelievable

Thomas from France

C' est un instrument fantastique créé par mégarde par nos ancêtres les aborigènes...merci pour eux car aujourd'hui je joue tout le temps pour calmer les nerfs grâce à leur son profond ou simplement me faire très plaisir. Cela me fait travailler mon souffle et j'adore "voir" cette vibration se propager dans toutes les directions autour de moi. Le mieux reste de jouer à plusieurs avec des didgeridoos à la même note de base pour pouvoir progresser et faire monter toujours plus le plaisir avec en prime une convivialité extraordinaire!

One of the best sounding instruments I have ever heard and knew that I wanted to play it right away.

I felt this was a sound I had heard before but not in this life time. It was and still is a sound that speaks too my heart and soul.

Tomi from Finland

Because I'm a percussionist and interested specially in native instruments and music I was fascinated by the sound. I remember I had heard that sound before but didn't know then what was the source. The rhythmic pulse the drone and accents like syllables made it clear that there was a story behind playing very much like in santeria music or in sami joik.

Tommaso Pilla from Italy

It's sound is one of the most tribal and "prehistoric" I have never heard before.
