Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made spiral didgeridoo

The Percussion Plus Honestly Made spiral didgeridoo is a compact and lightweight version of a full-length didgeridoo. Its unique shape is designed to allow the airflow inside the instrument to create low tones. It’s made in Bali, and island in Indonesia, using suar wood. The wood gets split down the middle and carved hollow, then the two halves are glued back together and a glossy finish is added.

The intricate, hand-painted pattern on the spiral makes it a wonderful instrument to display at home or in the classroom. The aboriginal dots also add an extra sensory element for young players, and makes it easy to hold when playing.

Each instrument is hand made using traditional materials and methods. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

How it’s played

The spiral didgeridoo can be played with two hands for stability or one so that the other hand is free to use another instrument. It’s played the same way as traditional didgeridoos, where circular breathing can be used to create a continual sound. Thanks to its spiral design, this version requires less breath pressure, which makes it easier for children to play.

The drone sound is produced by vibrating the lips, and the spiral pipe amplifies the sound. Pitch variation is achieved by changing lip tension, while overtones are created by changing the mouth shape and tongue position. The vocal tract is used to increase the tonal variation and make sounds.
