- I can't play my didjeridoo any more, what's wrong?
- How can I renew a worn out beeswax mouthpiece, and how (or where) can I get a
fine bees wax?
- I just got my first didge . It's about 5' 27" and has a crack about a quarter
of the way down. Is this common in didges? What can I do about it?
- The finish has worn off the bottom rim of my bell didj. Should I touch it up
with marine polyurethane? Also, I want to put my own design on a didj. Should I use acrylics?
- I have an iron bark didjeridoo and I'd love to know how to care for it. I've
read many things on how to look after it but I'd appreciate your views.
- I need to know how to stop my didj from cracking. It's going further each day,
- Hello. I just bought a didj (#ac140) from you and was wondering about moisture
- Is it possible to improve the back pressure of a didj by reducing the diameter
of the mouth piece with wax?
- I'm bored with my PVC didj and that stretched form. Can I heat the pipe and shape
it a bit more like a wood didj? Will it influence the actual sound?
- I have just arrived back from Australia where I purchased a didj. On the flight
back home to England the didj has been cracked slightly and I can't get a good sound out of it anymore. What do you recommend to
fill the crack with? Is there a certain kind of filler that would work best or a material that I could wrap it with?
- How do I have to store a didj? Standing up, or somewhere flat? I've found an
Internet page telling me to keep it standing up so the moisture can drain away, but I was also told by someone else to put it flat,
because otherwise the didj could crack (his explanation was that it could start acting like some sort of chimney). So, which is
- I was given a didgeridoo and was told to put oil on it. Is this correct?
- I bought a "D" didge from you some yrs ago. It is playing slightly
flat; it can be brought up by increasing pressure, but is there a way to alter the beeswax mouth piece to sharpen it? Decrease
the internal diameter some? (plays about a 1/4 tone flat)
- I was visiting Australia 2 1/2 years ago and purchased a high quality (beautiful wood) Aboriginal didge. I'm a professional brass
player here in America, so I was looking for a good souvenir and a great instrument. Well @#$% if I didn't knock it over a week ago
and give it a beautiful "U-shaped" crack down one side, over the top, and back up the other. It's relatively small...
isn't a hairline crack, but it is large enough for air to escape, which makes it "unplayable". I wrapped it tightly with
a web clamp to encourage it back into place until I can get it repaired. For the time being, it plays great like it used to, but
it's quite unsightly. I've visited many web sites trying to learn how to repair it, but I just don't want to screw it up. Someone
suggested using saw dust mixed with wood glue. Others said use saw dust and super glue. Even others said DON'T use wood glue because
it doesn't expand and contract like the natural wood does (Using this method will lead ! to more cracks in the future). Someone even
suggested going to a furniture repair shop since they work with wood all the time. The most logical suggestion said to use marine/boat
glue, since it's water resistant and somewhat flexible. It's a beautiful instrument with Aboriginal art, so it's not an option to
spread glue over the crack and sand it down. Got any ideas?
