Description

My comments: A enthusiast who takes time in manufacturing, quality before quantity! Bruce started making didges in the mid-90s, this passion is still strong 30 years later! All Bruce trunks have been dried for a minimum of 12 months before being processed. Bruce does not use wax to reduce the size of his mouthpieces. Either the hole is the right diameter and in this case Bruce works the mouthpiece in a natural way. Either he uses an embouchure insert. A real plus for getting the most comfortable mouthpiece! Bruce's didgeridoos have an unbeatable quality of manufacturing, finish, playability and price ratio.

Stunning shade of eucalyptus shade. Didgeridoo with a resonant and soft sound, ideal for harmonics, meditative playing and wobbles. Ash mouthpiece .

  • Instrument guaranteed for 1 year

Classification

This scale is the result of an air column/bell start ratio If we divide the diameter of the bell with that of the beginning of the air column we get a number between 1.5 and 3.5. We can classify all the didgeridoos in 4 large families. Each family groups the instruments with a similar character, simply based on the overall shape of the air column (conical/cylindrical) and on the diameter of the column (wide/narrow). The result is a simple and very reliable reading grid, making it easier to search and purchase on line.

The diameters are measured with a caliper, start of the air column after the mouthpîece. This ratio is very reliable for a didg having a air column with a 'smooth' internal work, in the case of a hollowed eucalyptus instrument it give an approach of the instrumental character.

Bruce Wix Stix

Bruce Wix, fabricant des WixStix didgeridoos

Un passionné qui prend le temps dans la fabrication, la qualité avant la quantité!

Bruce à commencer à fabriquer des didges dans le milieu des années 90, cette passion est toujours aussi forte 30 ans après! Il travaille trois différents types d'eucalyptus:

  • Woolybutt
  • Iron bark
  • Box  

​Tous ses didges termités sont issus du Nord de Queensland et coupés par un propriétaire Aborigène de renom. Tous ses troncs ont été séchés pendant 12 mois minimum avant d'être travaillés. Bruce n'utilise pas de cire pour réduire la taille de ses embouchures.

Soit le trou naturel est du bon diamètre et dans ce cas Bruce travaille l'embouchure de manière naturelle. Soit il insère une embouchure en camphrier bois reconnu pour ses qualités antibactériennes. Bruce et le seul fabricant à utiliser ce genre de technique d'insert. Un vrai plus pour obtenir une embouchure des plus confortables et antibactériennes.
