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!

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.
