Serial: Didjeribone



The Didjeribone was invented by Charlie Mc Mahon. A famous Australian didgeridoo player. He invented the first slide didgeridoo in the seventies and came with the didjeribone in the late 90's. The didjeribone is the best sliding slide didge of all slide didgeridoos. It is the world's best selling slide didgeridoo too. It does not have a lot of body which has an effect on the volume of the instrument. But very ideal for traveling, because of the light weight of only half a kilo. Another good thing is that the bell can come of. So the didjeribone will not break off and can be packed smaller that way. The didjeribone can bend in heavy sun or near other heat sources and will slide less if this happens.The inside of al slide didgeridoos are cylindrical. This is different than conical didgeridoos, it limit's a didgeridoo in power and has an effect on the trumpet tones. The trumpet tones are further away (higher note) of the ground tone, so it can be a little bit harder to grasp. Than again the lightness of plastic didgeridoos makes it very easy to resonate when blowing a trumpet tone or a basic drone. Easy for circular breathing. Good for learning, traveling, busking, but most of all the ability to slide and change the tone/ note of the didgeridoo. Length from 90 cm to 153 cm. Key's from C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G. The Sound sample was done by Didgeridoo virtuoso Michael Jackson From Australia. The sound sample is the end part of the song "Waggin the Stump" where only a didjeribone is multiple used. In Wagging the Stump you can hear the didjeribone sliding the basic drone in a slow and faster version in combination with several short toots in many different key's to create a melody. In the background you can hear a continues trumpet toot sliding to create another melody over the first two base melodies. If you ask me a Master piece on a didjeribone. There are 3 recordings dubbed over each other to make it in to a complete song. Waggin the stump comes from the Album "Beyond the Mike" available at Aboriginal Art & Instruments Amsterdam. Not available online. Note the new model is black and the bottom can be taken off.
