Name and Country

First Experience with a Didj

Aaron from USA

I was amazed by the raw primitive sound it made. The music was so "basic" and natural sounding. I was captivated by the vibrations that just penetrate your mind and body.


Primal shamanic sound the Om

Alex from USA

I remember seeing a didjeridu played on national geographic when I was around 11 or 12 this was when I was first becoming interested in music and I was instantly in LOVE. The sound was amazing I loved how soothing it was and knew I needed to get my hands on one. It took me quite awhile but about five years later I have actually found somebody that had one for decoration purposes and was able to borrow it from them. I am currently learning how to play and love every minute of it. Some friends and I make music collectively and independently and would love to include the unique sound of the didjeridu in our music. We have worked very hard and set up a decent quality recording environment and a didj of the caliber you are giving away would be fully utilized within it I believe it would set us far apart from any other local or regional artists and would add an amazing quality to our music.

Alexis Vivas Mu

I though was an amazing sound perfect to combine with percussion

Ami from USA

Tranquil but moved

Amy from USA

I had to have one. It possessed me.

Anders Nilsson from Sweden

I couldn't believe that those sounds were made just by blowing in a the didj. It sounded almost like electronic sounds. I was amazed.

Andrew from USA

The low tones are smooth and cool to hear. Since the first time I heard one I have wanted to play one.


This is awesome.

Anthony Molloy from Sweden

I was in awe just plain blown away by the sound!


I felt like I was in another state of existence.No mind no body no soul just sound.Like in the beginning of the Universe.The Universe is a great didgeridoo that plays the rhythm of life. Didgeridoo remember me the beginning of all.

Anonymous from Iceland

It made me feel like no other instrument. Having played both the piano and the guitar I finally came upon an instrument that has it's own raw rhythm. And instead of feeling like it was me playing the didj it felt more like it was playing through me.

Axel from Belgium

And I'm still thinking it most beautiful sound in the world. I never had one and it's my second biggest dream have a didgeridoo after swimming with dolphins

Barbara from USA

I was excited and yet a little apprehensive. Was not sure what I had gotten myself (and my friends) into! It was a very calming experience and I have since purchased 2 didj's while visiting Australia. Now if I could just learn the circular breathing!!!

Beauden from Australia

It put me in a trance and made me cry with joy

Bill Keane from USA

Fascinated! felt similar to first throwing a boomerang...



Bob Robinson from Australia

I was 8yrs old

Brad from USA

Brendan from Australia

Went home and played mums vacuum cleaner

Brett from Australia

Oddly moved deep "warm" feelings proud of being a part of the country that produces this magic sound

Brian from USA

I've always loved indigenous instruments so when I saw a fellow in mexico city playing in the park I offered to buy his and that was that. I have a bamboo agave euc teak(el'crapo). grounding like no other!

Cameron from United Kingdom

Mystical Unique and totally encapsulating. Haven't been able to stop playing since that day!

Cedric from France

The sound of this instrument is fabulous. It's very deep and relaxing


Je ne c pa

Cheryl Ludwig from USA

Immediately I felt an innate sense of familiarity with the sound it produced. I was entranced mesmerized and utterly swept up in the resonances. The sound of the didj touched me in a way that no other instrument has done not since then nor now. I play guitar and flute and learned to play the didj just recently. Wednesday I am going to some friends who play the didj and they are going to do healing work on me. I broke my neck in 1988. Though I am much better I still have residual damage from the accident. So we are going to do a test of once a week for four weeks on my spine to see how it affects me. I am able to walk and do most things but I suffer pain and stiffness and degeneration. I so believe in the power of the didj. We were at an art show (I am an artist) and some people were playing the didj. We talked and I sat down and they held two didjes close to my spine and worked up and down for several minutes. The feeling was so astounding that I was floored! It resonated throughout me the rest of the day. I had no idea what to expect. Where I felt it most was in my neck. I was so excited that I propositioned the two didj players to work on me as a trial and I would work on them (I do alternative healing) or trade some art. My first hour long session with them is tomorrow night. Since that experience I also learned to play the didj that day. Though I've always been awed by the didj I now know that I am to play and use the didj for healing - not just individuals but our mother earth as well. Turns out these two new friends get up before the sun rises each morning sit on their porches and greet the mother earth every morning and pray for their healing. After I buy a didj I will join them in this effort. I have been searching sites that sold authentic didjes and after searching several this is the site I'm sticking with. At some point I will be purchasing one of your didjes for sure. Thank you. Will keep you posted on my healing journey with my spine neck - and others as I develop.

Chris from USA

The sound feels as if it comes from the earth calming tranquil.

Chris Kangas from USA

As a child I remember feeling it was strange and unusual and yet I was drawn to its sound. It vibrated through my body and I loved it!!

Guillaume from France

Great spatial sound

Anonymous from Australia

Magic - a wonderful resonance to the sound.

Harry from USA

In 1987 I had never heard a didjeridu but knew only that it was an Aboriginal instrument. Because I love music and musical instruments from indigenous cultures I asked a friend who was visiting Australia to get me one. Somehow I felt confident that I could learn this instrument even though I had never heard it before and had no idea what to expect. Armed with a tiny booklet which came with my didge I made the correct fundamental tone within a few minutes. Within a week and a half I learned to circular breathe. When I finally heard Smithsonian recording of Aboriginal music 5 months later and realized I was on the right track I knew right away that I wanted to learn as much as possible about this magical instrument. When I hear (or especially when I play the didge) I always get a calming feeling which starts in the center of my body and spreads outward. This instrument has emotionally healed me during times of turmoil and has allowed my spirit to center down.

Hemanto from Switzerland

Unique sound fascinating

Henk Stange from Netherlands

It take's me and it never leave's me!

I felt the sound truly unique as it is and was inspired by the instrument. The essence of nature was contained not only in the instrument and its creation but also in the sound produced by the player who seemed to have a true affinity with his surroundings.

Jonathan Benham from USA

Kathy from Australia

I love the sound it makes. my son tries to make the sam sound with his hands.

Anonymous from Australia

Wow! How do I learn to play like that?!


That is an awesome sound. How is the sound generated. I played the trumpet for years when I was growing up and as a physics teacher I find teaching sound exciting. There are some many neat demos I can do and the students love bringing in their instruments to study the sound they generate. The didgeridoo is one the most basic instrument I have ever seen and the sound it generates is fascinating and powerful. A student brought one in today and played it and I have decided that I am going to research the physics behind it and introduce the instrument to my future students. I appreciate the opportunity to win one through your contest but I would also be willing to take a "reject" if there are any teachers are not paid very well here in the USA. Sincerely Keith Leonard

Keith from Australia



Thought it was a really neat instrument.

Kelly from Canada

Lionel Cotel from Belgium

Magnifique son melodieux et tres planant

Luke Macrae from Australia

I was in first grade at school and because I attended a public primary school built on land that was home to the Warraburra tribe we were frequently visited by aboriginal performers. I was amazed and in complete awe of the didj players and always wanted for them to teach me how to do what they did... but was too shy. so I began playing on a piece of pvc pipe I found at home and every time I play I can't put the pipe down for hours! still love the feeling I get hearing the didj and that's why I'm on your site looking to purchase my first authentic didj!

Marcus Comet from Sweden

It was something previously unheard. I sat by a fire in a dark forest and a friend of a friend started to play his didge... it was such a deep sound like it was some kind of manifestation of the natural-enviorment we where in the forest gave it it's sound - yet the didge gave the forest it's own sound... Indescribable...

Mark from Australia

Hearing it live it so different to hearing it on a CD. The sound just filled every part of my body. I couldn't help but smile and feel so alive. This is why I picked up a didj.
