As a bass player I love the continuous rhythmical nature of the sound and the earthiness of the tone.

Diane from Czech Republic

I am a Buddhist and I chant daily. My entire mind and body with it's breathing my projected vocal resonance my mind with it's control of thought - all make me a musical instrument communing with the universe. I am very interested in expanding my spirituality through regular didj playing. I am also interested in Tuvian tube and throat singing. For me sound is a very spiritual thing. I prefer "primal" or "original" sounds most.


I've been to Australia several times over the years and am interested in Australian cultural and history.

Dovin Herring from USA

For many reasons the most recent of which is that according to research didgeridoo playing (i.e. circular breathing) can drastically improve snoring and sleep apnea. I recently had the opportunity to to witness this when I taught a friend to play who had an acute condition. almost over night he reported deeper levels of sleep and dreaming for the first time in 20 years (john is a 45 year old attorney)

Dragos from Romania

Its my way of expressing my self through playing the didgeridoo it connects me with the didgeridoo's spirit.

Anonymous from USA

I write music and I have been looking for a new sound to go along with my guitar playing. When I first herd about the didge I had no idea what it was and saw it on the discovery channel. But I loved its sound it is hypnotizing. After that I went online and learned how to make my own out of PVC and taught myself how to play but PVC just dose not cut it for sound and that brings me to looking for a authentic didgeridoo.

Elad from Switzerland

I am completely fascinated by the effect the sound has on listeners.

I love the sound of them and my brother in-law plays one in a band.

Jeffrey from USA

Love the sound & playing. My brother who passed away sent message from the other side through reliable source to buy one & learn to play. I had asked my brother aloud for a suggestion in dealing with my severe clinical depression. Three days later I got a phone message from intuitive friend who knew nothing of my didge interest. They said that they had just had a dream in which I was sitting playing didge while brother stood behind me smiling. He then requested them to tell me to buy a didge and learn to play. I no longer suffer from depression and know that the didge along with my friends helped me through this time.

Jennifer from USA

They are fantastic instruments with an amazing range of sound. It is part of the culture and that is so beautiful

Julie from USA

I recently became interested in them because of a classmate and I find them and the aboriginal culture enchanting. I don't know much about either but I think the didge is a beautiful instrument and a great way for me to learn more about both it and the aboriginal culture.


The sound of the Didgeridoo is so earthen and powerful. It has always evoked a kind of clarity for me I must stop and listen and when I do I cannot ignore the history that I hear...history of the land of people and of communication. I really like the naturality of the Didge and how artists co-work on it to create a masterpiece with nature.


I would love to learn how to play one and maybe be in a band with it.

Ken Bauer from Canada

I love the sound

Kevin Vorst from Netherlands

The sound flows through your body like a ship through the sea it flows but leaves a indescribable intense feeling

Tom Rychlik from USA

I went to a festival and a man named by Steve Turner Told me that this instrument changed his life and I talked to him for an hour and we sat down and played together. He was really good and his own form and I have never played so I just played the basics and I fell in love with the didj

Tom from Belgium

The first time I heard a didge it gave me goose bumps. I followed the sound and found an average player who was trying to make some money on the street. It was +12 years ago on the streets of Antwerp Belgium. I instantly pulled all the information I could get out of the guy. Next week I bought a cheap Australian bamboo didge and I played until my lips start bleeding. I wanted to be as good as possible. I bought some second hand tapes with some lessons on it to learn faster. I was always (and now to) intrigued by didgeridoos because each piece is unique by sound form and artwork. I'm always interested in the symbolism of the artwork on an didge. What does it mean and does it tell a story. If I had a lot of money I would buy every didge in the store because most didges have something special on their own. Some people say that it's a very 'closed' instrument because you don't play a song with it. But when I play I feel like an open book because I play the sound of my feeling at that moment. When I play when I'm happy its sounds so much different than when I'm sad. For me is didge playing the my most effective way to express myself. My feeling my sound my music.

Tyrel Campbell from USA

I like the sound. I like the feel. I like the meditative qualities
