Mike Stute from USA

Well to tell you the truth I first thought of it as very primitive but it had an interesting sound that was very unique. However being any instrument that can't change pitch I assumed it must be a simple instrument for simple use. Fast forward about 3 years ago. I'm in a "Natural Wonders" store in Minneapolis . Minnesota and they are playing this CD over the store speakers and it has the didj in it. It sounds cool so I buy it. It turns out it is Adam Plack and Johnny Soames ("Winds of Warning") and I get to hear the didj played well for first time and I am in awe at the range of sounds it can produce. Being a guitarist for many years I'm shocked that I find an instrument that is as able to express emotion as well as I can on the 6-strings in fact maybe more so. Then I realize that it's the simplicity of the instrument that allows the player to be themselves. Here I am trying to express my soul through wood plastic metal magnetic coils and amplifiers and here's this guy with a hollow tube with nothing to hide behind. I'm hearing him -- his emotions -- his soul. It was at that moment I understood the didgeridoo and from then on decided I need to play. Having played PVC now for about 18 months I finally am a circular breathing fool (practiced for more than a year and then suddenly one day it just snapped in place a few months ago and I've never thought about it again). I'm ready for a real didj. Only then did I learn how difficult such a "simple" can be to reach that level and expression. And I still haven't but I concede I probably never will.

Mikko from Finland

It was awesome!

Mrs Bernard from USA


Nancy from USA

Resonating in a way no other sound has
