Why interested in Didj


They are one of the most amazing and unique instruments in the world

Aileen from USA

I come from a musical family and my husband and I thought this would be a great instrument to try next.


Because when I was young I tried many instruments like piano guitar etc but nothing kept me interest... Finally I told my parents I wanted to try didj and one day they brought back one home for me! I played for years till last year my didj cracked and couldn't make any more good sound...:-(

Alexis Gagnon from Canada

It's a return to nature!


They are gorgeous

They fascinate me. I love the infinite possibilities they present. There is no one way to play it allowing for growth and creativity on a huge scale. The didgeridoo offers so much both sonicly and spiritually creating a balance and harmony that I've enjoyed for years.


They fascinate me as they are such an extraordinary instrument. I play the trumpet so the same kind of techniques can be applied to the didj as the trumpet and vice versa. Didjeridu are just so relaxing as well and social to play.

Unusual musical instrument I like the sound it makes and am determined to learn how to play it.


Interested for my father. His health is a concern and its going to make a great gift.

Anonymous from USA

When a friend of mine let me try his for the first time he was amazed that I could play it right away. A good droning sound that is.

For a gift


After a visit in 2005 I seen & heard a Band called Em Dee in Darwin got into the rhythms & bought a Didje before I returned to the UK. After researching the history and searching for teaching/learning I've finally mastered CB & find it a good way to relax after a hard day.

I love the sound of them. And I find them very relaxing. I only have one didj now that I am learning to play. It doesn't sound very good but I'm sure that's more to do with the player than the didj. =) I've just started getting into it so I don't really know any famous players however I did see some incredible didj players on youtube.com (Mack Yidhakky was one.


Saw some in australia last year
