Manufacturing method

The didgeridoo started out as a tool used by Australian Aborigines for communication. They were used also in ceremonies to tell stories and to recount the events of the past day. Over time it evolved from this primary function to become a musical instrument. Despite its very basic design (a didgeridoo is a simple wooden tube), it contains a lot of technical resources. It is probably the world’s oldest wind instrument. Naturally hollowed out by termites, the traditional Australian didgeridoo requires no coring.

On this web site, I offer my own handcrafted didgeridoos. They are manufactured from branches or trunks, from different species of trees found mainly around my home (Parthenay), with focus on hardwoods. The particular characteristics of these natural items sometimes mean making choices during the manufacturing process, which leads to the creation of unique pieces. I occasionally use exotic wood for the mouthpieces, curtains (ça ne me semble oas correct, mais je ne sais pas trop de quoi il s’agit. Le mot pour le “tube” serait “bore”) or for the edging. All my instruments are halved lengthways, allowing me to remove as much material as I want. I use gouges to make instruments with beautiful musical characteristics. I also work with wooden beams, which allow me to work in a completely different way, leaving more room for my imagination and my creativity. I hollow my instruments entirely by hand, leaving visible gouge marks inside. This method brings my didgeridoos closer to the traditional instrument.

All my didgeridoos are tuned to meet the needs of all musicians who play in bands with other harmonic instruments. They all receive varnish inside and outside, providing perfect stability against moisture, which is mainly produced while playing. The coatings are in compliance with the EN 71.3 toys standard.


My didgeridoos come with a 2-year warranty. If, despite all the care taken during the fabrication process, defects were to appear during this 2-year period (cracks and air leaks) I would rework your instrument as necessary, in order that you should be able to enjoy it again as soon as possible. The owner will be responsible for all delivery costs.

If it appears that the instrument has been exposed to poor care, the purchaser will be responsible for the costs of repair. A quote will be sent for approval before repairing. Any modifications made on the instrument by a third party will cancel the warranty, whatever the date of purchase.

All my instruments are sold with a bag, please use it only for carrying your instrument.

Wood is a living material, it is essential to take care of the didgeridoo, avoid exposing it to sudden temperature and humidity changes and avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. After playing, it is best to leave the didgeridoo upright before storing in its bag, so that any moisture can escape.
