One didgeridoo to rule them all.
Largest note range of any didgeridoo on the market. From C3
to B1. That’s over an octave range! Flats or sharps will be midway between the
listed note lengths.
4 interlocking tubes allows this to collapse to the shortest
size possible of any slide didgeridoo, only 24”. Yet it can also extend to a
whopping 74.5” for rumbling low notes.
No worries about accidentally pulling your didge apart. Each section has a slightly flared end so that it will not come apart
when fully extended. Once fully extended this also makes for an even tighter
and better seal. The most popular keys for the didgeridoo are E2, D2 and C2.
These are reached after maxing out the first two sliding sections. Most
recommend learning in the key of D. However, everyone is different. For example,
if you are struggling with learning circular breathing, you can try higher keys
and see if that is easier for you.
Freestyle change of the pitch while playing. Simply slide
the didgeridoo longer or shorter while playing. There is a firm feel while
changing the pitch so it will not collapse accidentally while playing. This
creates an auto friction lock yet still allows movement. The tight seal also
limits air bleeding through and affecting the quality of sound. No lubrication
Every player gets a slightly different pitch while playing
the same length didgeridoo due to lip tension, mouth shape and harmonic pitches
used. Use our listed lengths below as a great starting point. To get more
precise, mark your didge with a permanent pen to index your exact desired pitch
lengths. Use a free chromatic tuner app on your phone or, for
a small fee, Peterson Strobe Tuners offers an app where you can set your desired
pitch in the tuner and it shows how flat or sharp you are until reaching
perfect pitch. For professional players you can also mark your didge with 440hz
(standard concert pitch) and 432hz tuning depending on what your needs
- 24” Collapsed
- C3 = 36” (First sliding tube fully extended)
- B2 = 37.5”
- A2 = 43”
- G2 = 48”
- F2 = 52.5”
- 54.5” (Second tube fully extended)
- E2 = 57”
- D2 = 63”
- C2 = 70”
- B1 = 74.5” (Third tube fully extended)
The top tube has an internal diameter of 1.25” this strikes
a great balance between strong back pressure for circular breathing while also
keeping vocals crisp and clean. Perfect for beginners and advanced players.
Most people love the sound of a super deep low note on the
didgeridoo for meditation and relaxation. This didgeridoo goes all the way down
to B1 which has a deep rumbling tone. These lower notes require expert control
and are difficult to circular breathe on without losing the drone. With this
didge you can start in the mid range at D and work your way step by step down
to the lowest note. This makes it much easier to learn how to play these super low
tones. You will find higher notes take tighter lip control while low notes require much looser relaxed lip tension.
For fast rhythmical style playing simply shorten the length
and with the higher notes your natural cadence will quicken. This is a great
way to expand your repertoire and become a better didgeridoo player.
Another great thing about the sliding didgeridoo is you can
match exact pitch with any other didgeridoo or musical instrument even if they
are slightly out of tune. Jamming with your friends will sound amazing!
Made with a variety of modern materials this didgeridoo is
tough and ready to travel. Thick molded walls help concentrate the sound giving
it a strong sound.
Weighs 4 pounds. Light enough for travel but beefy enough to
be rugged with a great sound.

- Overall Rating:
Backpressure: the resistance of air you feel from the inside of a didgeridoo while you are playing it. Usually small diameter tubes have more backpressure and large diameter tubes have less. Good backpressure allows you to circular breathe more easily and be efficient with your air flow.
the didgeridoo has a fundamental key. Harmonics are higher frequencies
found within the fundamental key. They can be manipulated by the
placement of your tongue while playing. For example, while playing the
didge position your tongue like saying the letter "e", but do not use
your vocal cords. This will create a harmonic.
vocal response is the ability of the didgeridoo to project sound from
your vocal cords while playing the drone. Usually larger diameter didges
have better vocal response than smaller diameter didges.
Volume: the amount of sound that is produced.
Includes: didgeridoo, padded travel bag with shoulder strap, instruction DVD, and instruction booklet. Our 2 hour long jam packed DVD has many in depth didgeridoo exercises and playing methods.

Didgeridoo sleep apnea and snoring? How does playing help?
Researchers in Switzerland
examined 25 patients who suffered from snoring and moderate obstructive
sleep apnea syndrome, both common sleep disorders. Half the group were
given daily 15 to 30 minute lessons in playing the didgeridoo. The
study, published in the British Medical Journal's online edition found
that those who played didgeridoo over a four-month trial period saw a
significant improvement in their daytime sleepiness and apnea. Their
partners also reported less disturbance from snoring. The researchers
said training the upper airways through the breathing techniques
required to play the didgeridoo was behind the improvement. "Our results
may give hope to many people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea
syndrome and snoring, as well as their partners," the report's authors
said. While results may vary, we
have had customers get back to us. They report that our didgeridoo was
easy to learn to play and get the circular breathing technique. They
also have seen an improvement in their conditions.
How long each day do I need to play the didgeridoo to help with sleep apnea and snoring?
15 to 30 minutes a day.
How do I play it?
does not require a lot of pressure or force to play, you don't blow
hard. It is a relaxed lip vibration (like giving a raspberry) that
creates the tone. Anyone can play it, your height does not matter.
Our 2 hour long jam packed DVD is included with this didgeridoo. It has many in depth didgeridoo exercises and playing methods.
