MT-Yidaki Shop

Yiḏaki and mago are the original didgeridoo’s played by aboriginal people in the northern part of the Northern Territory, mainly in Arnhemland. These very diverse groups of people have these instruments in their culture since many generations.

Michiel's aim is to bring you high quality yiḏaki and mago of the highest cultural integrity. All the instruments are hand selected and made by traditional people on traditional land.

Since 2011 Michiel decided to re-invest a part of his annual proceedings as a didgeridoo player/teacher back in to Arnhem land culture. Which led to a shop full of instruments selected for their playability.

If you are looking for something particular feel free to drop a line and he will do his best to source it for you!

Dhapa Ganambarr of the Ngaymill clan, is one of my favorite yiḏaki makers. Since 2009 he produces top quality musical instruments that are sought after by musicians and collectors throughout the world.


This D# yiḏaki is flaweless. The acoustics are very well balanced and the playing pressure is excelent.
It is very resonant and has this thunderous quality that alot of yiḏaki / didgeridoo players are looking for.
The finnish of this Gaḏydaka tree is perfect. Dhapa did it again!

Dream yiḏaki by the famous Djalu Gurruwiwi.
A F# with a F# toot that plays so light and easy is a rarity!
You don’t have to think about the rythms, this yiḏaki just draws them from your body, hart and brain.
The acoustics are very well balanced. And the toot, which is right on the octave, just pops when you think about it. The weight on this yiḏaki is 6 kilos, so a bit on the heavy side. But if you consider the overal excelence of this instrument, I would not bother doing some workout carrying it arround…

A great F – F by legendary yiḏaki expert Djalu Gurruwiwi.
A bit dirty and mysterious in sound.
But it plays like a dream!
Nice balance in acoustics. Easy toot. And a good speed to it.
The finnish of this yiḏaki is a bit rough. It looks like it was made only with a machette.
Also the painting, in ochers, is rough. But, for me, it has a nice and authentic feel to it.
There are two small, black beeswax, repairs at the mouthpiece. But I don’t think they will cause any problem.

  • Key : D – F#
  • Size: 138,5 cm
  • Mouthpiece: 3,2 cm
  • Bell: 6,5 cm

A rather modest sounding instrument by Didiwarr and his mother Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi.
Because of the backpressure being medium, this yiḏaki enables you to really ‘push and pull’.
The toot is a bit higher than the fundamental but this is normal for alot of traditional instruments, where the horn note is used for signalling.
The painting, by Djul’djul’ Gurruwiwi, depicts Wititj the ancesteral Rainbow Serpent.

A great stick for those who like that typical Arnhemland sound.

I remember Didiwarr when he walked in, at community based art centre Buku Larrŋgay Mulka, with his first commercially made instrument together with his father, the late B*rrŋ*p*rrŋ* Wunuŋmurra.
I bought it straight away.
It is good to see Didiwarr stepped up and continues making instruments of the highest cultural integrity, like his famous father.

This venture results in top quality yiḏaki. In Arhemland, Marikuku is in demand as a ceremonial yiḏaki player for the Dhuḏi-Djapu clan.


This yiḏaki is a good example of his outstanding work!
Rich in overtones, a very strong and powerfull sound. Great backpresurre and a perfect interfall between drone and dup!
It’s a beast that was favorite to Buku Larrŋgay staff member, Djuwakan #2 Marika who was reluctant to let it go.


I played this yiḏaki in my live show at the 2019 FATT Festival in Tavira, Portugal.

A master blaster by an unknow maker from Gapuwiyak, Lake Evella.
The fundamental is a bit above G. An instrument in this range that plas as easy as this one is quite rare.
Most of the time instruments in this key tend to be compressed and tight. But this yiḏaki has really good overal frequencies.
The toot is pretty sharp and requires some precision but when you found it, it wil pop up crisp and clear.
Really nice rarrk painting on the outside!

Djakapurra made a carving of a crane on the outside and filled in the wood carvings with paint.
Pretty similar as Datjirri Wunuŋmurra used to do.

Okay one more time: Dhapa Ganambarr!!!

A solid D# with a lot of funk to it. There is a lot off power in this stick. Very nice and rich acoustics. With an easy to hit and round first trumpet note.
Dhapa is not only one of the most cosistent yiḏaki crafters but he’s a real wood worker as well.
All of his yiḏaki are made with a lot of love for the shape of the tree and he spents hours in shaping it so that the walls are evenly thick.
Wich results in very stable and powerfull instruments.
You will need to come over and try this one!!!

I played this yiḏaki at my concert at Swisseridoo in 2017.
And at my concert at FATT Festival in Portugal 2019.

A very balanced and lightweight instrument by Dhapa Ganambarr. The finishing is really well done, as we are used of Dhapa. His work is really consistent. His ability of finding the right trees and then work on them to bring out the best instrument is unmatched at the moment.
The sound spectrum is on the brighter side. But it still has a good bass.
The interval between the drone and trumpetsound is ideal for those who love the traditional use of the dup. It has a nice and round sound and can be played very rapidly.

A good allrounder with a bit of an Arnhemland feel.

As soon as I took it out of the box I knew it was a great stick! Just by the feel of it.
And I got my confimation as soon as I started playing.
I can see why Jeremy Cloake had this in his private collection for a while.

Besides being a top notch instrument, it also has a very rare shape.
You don’t see this bell ends very often. I know Yomunu Yunupiŋu used one in his Yothu Yindi times. Basically this works like a litlle amplifier.

Very resonant and vibrating yiḏaki. Because of the backpressure it is really easy to play.
All I can say more is: top stick!

A really good instrument with nice backpressure. Fast as a bullet and a dup to dream of. Easy to hit and a nice round sound.

Sometimes you will hear Yolŋu talk about bass and lead yiḏaki.
This is a bass yiḏaki!
It will shake the room but still has got plenty of definition in the higher range so you will be able to put proper yiḏaki articulation in the sound.

Fairly lightweight for such a big stick.
Warm and soothing sound but with enough uhmpf to play solid beats.
Personally I would open up the mouthpiece a bit. Since my prefered size is 30mm. There is enough wood to do this without any problem.

Allround yiḏaki. It is good player for contemporary style and when you want to go deeper in the trad. style.

A nice and solid stick by Marikuku Wirrpanda.

I really like the ochre miny’tji!
