Suitable for beginners and performers alike, the Didjeribone is a lightweight and versatile instrument. Weighing less than 0.5kg, the Didjeribone uses a minimum of materials so it can be played in a variety of positions, and is unlikely to break or cause damage if it is dropped. Custom made extrusion dies ensure a minimum clearance between the two pipes, so the Didjeribone slides effortlessly between keys (ranging from low B to high G), but does not allow air to escape when fully extended. The rubber mouthpiece makes for easy contact with the lips and is the optimal size for ease of play, and does not require the wax often used to made wood didgeridoos playable. The flared bell gives the Didjeribone a brighter and louder sound than other linear shaped didgeridoos. A long-standing tried and tested professional instrument, the Didjeribone is now in it's updated and improved 3rd generation.
The Didjeribone was invented by Charlie McMahon who first put the didgeridoo in a contemporary music context with the GONDWANALAND band. From over 40 years as a didge player Charlie has been able to design the Didjeribone as a versatile and easy to play instrument.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The key markings on the Didjeribone are not pitch (Hz) accurate, as the actual pitch will vary slightly depending on the player.
