Playing the "didge" is very relaxing and strengthening to the lungs
and diaphragm. It has been recommended for sleep apnea and stress
management, used in meditation and sound therapy, used professionally
and most frequently at drum circles, and is a great living room
Playing the didge energizes the player; the longer one plays the better
one feels. Rob attributes this effect to the increased pressure on the
inhaled air, resulting in increased condensation and the release of
energy in the player's body.
We make our Didgeridoos from bamboo we grow in Florida and Virginia.
The standard didge is a straight tube ranging in size from 1" x 4½'
to 1½" x 5-6'. The tube is bored, burned and sanded inside
and out and has a tooled, rounded mouthpiece. Finally it is bound in
several places with fine, strong thread to enhance its longevity.
