Have noticed that adding a curve in the middle of the didge, gives a richer drone sound.
Is there a paper describing actually how bending/twisting the didge affects the sound?

I, too, am interested in this topic. I was considering adding a flare to my pvc and have thought about adding a subtle bend or two in order to make the didge appear more natural. Do you know if there's a good way to apply heat for bending/flaring pvc pipe? I know NOTHING about this but I intend to learn fast.

........ I used an LPG gas torch to shape this PVC Didge a couple of years ago ...knew nothing when I started but quickly learnt to avoid the toxic fumes...... I managed the woodgrain -like appearance by almost burning the surface ... again,this should only be attempted outside.... Mouthpiece was made from Knead-It .. a two pot epoxy with the consistency of Putty that allowed shaping for about 30 min. ..then cured rock hard over night.

Better use a hot air gun, because it won't burn the PVC.

Another method is to use hot oil. I don't see it being easily applyable to mid-sections but it is the safest method to form PVC pipes at the ends.
