All of us here at Didgeridoo Breath were didgn’ stoked when the box of Si‘s new fibreglass didgeridoos arrived at the shop last week. A few us were even lucky enough to test them out straight outta the packaging.
Here is our didge test drive of the new Si Red Belly Black fibreglass didgeridoo!
First impressions first, these didgeridoos are LOUD and very POWERFUL! It is easy to get carried away playing the Red Belly Black they have an awesome clear sound, with great back pressure, when playing you just want to play faster and faster and faster.
The Red Belly Black has a unique mouthpiece bowl, custom designed by Si himself. Although most of us in the shop have been playing for quite a while, we found it incredibly easy to achieve the toot on the Red Belly Black with the added bonus of the toot matching the tone of the didge (both in the musical key of F!). There were also mentions from some staff that they found the tone reflective of traditional yidaki style.
The Red Belly Black also incorporates a specialised rubber lining around the bell of the didge, which is a pretty cool addition for any busker or performer who likes to send out their didgeridoo musical medicine for all on a rough playing surface.
Come test them out in the shop for yourself if you are in the Fremantle area, or check out some of our sound samples on the product page to bear witness to the power of the Red Belly Black and have some FUN!
Si’s playing style has long been associated with speed and incredible versatility, now it’s your turn. Harness the ferocity of the red belly black and get didgn’ mate!

William slipped into old Fremantle town to play a couple of private concerts last week. He was without a didge and so he borrowed an ellswood didgeridoo for the shows. He even gave us a little video of his playing style, super strong and fast!!! We also had a good chat about some of his new music and a CD coming out soon and the possibility of a show/workshop early next year!! 🙂 We will let you all know closer to the date if we can sort this out, fingers crossed for that one!!. So here is the video and a link to Williams website. Enjoy and happy didgin’

Screwdown didges are back!!! We sold out of the first batch very quickly and have been waiting awhile for these didgeridoos, so if you want one, the time is now…They are in the key of ‘D’ (when fully constucted) but you can experiment with the different sizes and get other keys.. They are powerful and play well no matter what your level is, and they weigh under 1 kilo, making them the perfect travel didge. Click here to check them out!
We have just received a new batch of great Yidaki’s from North East Arnhemland. Djalu, Burrngupurrngu and Napurrawuy have made some amazing instruments ranging in key’s from G – C#. They are selling fast so be sure to get in quick for your own traditional Yidaki.
If you are looking for a didgeridoo that is very easy to play, incredibly loud, ultra responsive, super strong, lightweight & great for traveling with and takes your didgeridoo playing to a new level, you are in the right place! Here is some videos of Simon demonstrating these amazing Didgeridoos..
