Indigenous Australian Musical Instrument - Didgeridoo

Today we will try to make the mysterious and sacred musical instrument of the indigenous people of Australia - didgeridoo. Who does not know didgeridoo best made from eucalyptus. Helps in the manufacture of this musical instrument nature itself, or rather insect termites. They gnaw through the core of a tree, and it remains to find it and remove sawdust. We did not have a finished eucalyptus stem and termites. But in any city, you can buy, or at least order via the Internet, bamboo. Another important component in this sacred instrument is the aesthetic side of the material. Bamboo is very pleasant to take in hand. In a good way, it can be made from a plastic water pipe. But playing this instrument is unlikely to be fun. So, let's begin.

We will need a stick of bamboo with a diameter of about five centimeters and a length of one and a half - two meters. Next, we tie a rope (absolutely any, which you will find) each joint.There may be different number of joints - it depends on the place where bamboo grew.

Strapping joints should be made as tight as possible. And so, then to tie a knot. Further, all the branches of the rope shift to the point of articulation. Thus, we achieve rigidity so that the bamboo does not crack during the manufacturing process of the tool.

After these simple manipulations we get a bamboo stick tied around all joints.

And as can be seen in the previous figure, we prepare the adaptation of the day of making holes in the joints. We take simple fittings of about eight to ten millimeters in diameter and a little smaller in size than our billet. The armature needs to be sharpened like a screwdriver.

After everything is ready with us, you can take a break and drink tea, and after resting with new forces, proceed to the final part of the making of the mysterious instrument - didgeridoo.
We take sharpened reinforcement in one hand, and in the other blank from bamboo and with sure movements we punch a hole in a circle. Next, make holes in all remaining transitions. You need to try to achieve results without chipping inside.This smoothness will provide a more even and pleasant sound during the game.

This completes the manufacture of the bamboo didgeridu tool. I wish you a pleasant game and speedy learning of various styles of exhalation of air. They say that they learn this from several months to several years, depending on your talents.
