Hell...I would like to know how difficult is to play one...then I'll worry about recording it! :)


I've been wanting to get one just to have for some occasional "ear candy"...but I'm not sure if it takes a lot of practice to make proper didgeridoo sounds...?


I played a bit of clarinet and sax...a loooooong time ago...so I'm somewhat familiar with wind instruments...though it may not be of much help as far as a didgeridoo goes...???

a didge is designed to hear from a very long distance. 1 mike won't do the trick,...the bass sounds aren't picked up when close to the didge,.. I prefer to record them at 50 centimeters,...2 meters and 10 meters,...three mikes ,..three tracks,...just mix those to the sound of your liking.

Fan, nu pissar jag taggtråd igen. Jag skulle inte satt på räpan.
